Weird access rights for "Authenticate via"

Description of the problem

I am trying to report an issue to GNOME Gitlab. I don’t have an account, and I am trying to expedite the process.

However, Gitlab seems to ask “so much more”


than Github

Is this a bug / feature / as-expected … ?

Which Group/Project (with full path) is experiencing the issue?

Approximate date/time when the error occurred.

Describe what you were doing right before the issue occurred.


since you are accesing the GNOME hosted version of GitLab, please contact their administrators who are in control of the oauth provider settings. Specifically, they can limit the scopes they require for login actions.
