An authorization error is triggered when a script's function cannot run due to a lack of authorization. In most cases, this issue is caused by multiple connections on a Chrome session. This article explains further this issue.
Why do I get this error?
When you are connected to a Google Chrome session, you can add multiple accounts under the same session. If your main account (the default one) has not installed Form Publisher, and you are trying to open Form Publisher with one of the other accounts, you have this error message:
info Google uses the main account to launch server-side function (Note that we do not have any control about that except sending this error) and as it hasn't the authorization the script crashes.
What should I do?
To solve this issue:
- First, log out of every account
- Then, log in with the one that owns the Google Form that you are trying to edit
- Or, open a Chrome session where the primary account is the one you're using
