Login takes me to google

I started to try the streamlit cloud thing a few month back and it seemed to work then with my github login. Now I came back to it and if I click on login with github it takes me to a Sign in - Google Accounts page. Can someone tell me what is going on here??? Tried it with all my browsers btw.

Hi @ksxx :wave:

That is expected behavior. The sign-in flow includes signing into Streamlit Cloud via email / Google and signing in to GitHub so Streamlit can access your app repos.

When I tried to do this, I can’t login to my existing account. Instead I’m asked to create a new account with streamlit. But I already have an account at streamlit which was created by signing in via github. It seems streamlit assumes, that your github account is using a gmail email address.

Instead how I managed to login to my existing streamlit account was by clicking on sign in via email and using the email address I use with github. This worked. However after login in addition I needed to go to settings/source control and connect to github to finally see my existing streamlit cloud apps.

Hey @asmaier,

If you’ve logged in with both GitHub and Gmail/Google in the past, but are now trying to log in via only GitHub, Streamlit Community Cloud will prompt you to log in with Gmail/Google as well.

If you’d like to unlink your Gmail/Google account from Streamlit Community Cloud, you log in with both GitHub and Gmail/Google, and then log out via Gmail/Google.

Similar issue I’m having. Signed up with email. Logged in with github. Now signed out. Cannot see any option to login via email only Google. I have not signed up with Google so how will that work?

Hey @alxtrnr, if you DM me the GitHub username you’ve used to log in, I can tell you what email address it’s linked to in our system

Hi @Caroline I have a smilier problem with my streamlit app. I renamed the app following streamlit’s documentation and since then I can’t log into the app fro my GitHub account. I have sent mails to support but I was re-directed to snowflakes but I couldn’t submit a case with a trial account. Please is there anything I can do?

Hey @Amy_Ikp, I’d recommend following the steps in this guide to create a support ticket – you actually don’t need a paid Snowflake account to do this, just a free Snowflake “community” account which gives you access to the support portal.

Hi Caroline, I have tried to create a support ticket to no avail. Please if you know a way, I can log into my streamlit app through my GitHub after I renamed the app (I read your comment asking someone if he did this), I’d really appreciate if you can give few pointers. Thank you

Hey @Amy_Ikp

If you submit a case to the support team, they can delete the app for you and you can redeploy it with the new GitHub repo name

Thank you Caroline.

Hi, I’m experiencing a similar problem.
At the end of 2022 I deployed a few applications on share.streamlit.io through login via GitHub.

Recently I discovered that one of the above applications is showing the following error:
“TypeError: This app has encountered an error. The original error message is redacted to prevent data leaks. Full error details have been recorded in the logs (if you’re on Streamlit Cloud, click on ‘Manage app’ in the lower right of your app).”

Therefore I log in to share.streamlit.io with GitHub AND Google (not sure if I had to log in to Streamlit with Google before). The page “share.streamlit.io” shows all my applications, but if I open an application it doesn’t show me the console right panel. If I click on the bottom-right Streamlit button it brings me to “Cloud • Streamlit” as a not logged in user. If I click on the Sign-in button, it brings me to “share.streamlit.io” as an already logged in user. It’s like a vicious circle! :frowning:

Any help? Thanks

Well, it solved by itself! Maybe some Streamlit cloud glitch :slight_smile:

How did you solve it I have been working to solve this and now I get an admin error. Somehow Streamlit gets confused and although I made the configuration changes and received the email to login via GitHub creds there is still an issue.

Hi, I’m sorry but I don’t really know what happened. It has been a while, but I’m quite sure it just solved by itself. Probably some communication issue between Streamlit and GitHub.
