Also with OAuth it is necessary to log in with the browser and to confirm to 
the web service that the tool may access your account. After pressing on 
change account a browser window should open to log on. The difference now is 
that after login and confirmation the digiKam tool automatically receives the 
session token and is active. You should then see your username in the digiKam 
tool and you can use it.
