IDE Bug (VSCode) - Login with social


When trying to log in to my PlatformIO account from the IDE (VSCode) when using a social connection (GitHub in my case), it appears to send you to the wrong URL:
This results in a 404 error.

Additionally it looks like the Google OIDC client is misconfigured as I get an additional error with that after correcting the URL:

Error 403: org_internal
This client is restricted to users within its organization.

Thank you, I can now log in with both GitHub and Google. The Google flow seems to work perfectly without the verification from Google, it offered to link the additional account and required email verification as you’d expect.
