Have there been any fixes for this problem? I have the same issue. Users change there AD password. The nextcloud client doesn’t update the password. Or maybe it’s more that the iOS password manager doesn’t update.

If the password manager doesn’t update AD user accounts get locked out of the system. The workaround i have is to open safari on the iPad. Go to the Nextcloud login page. If still logged in sign out. After that sign in again and the password manager pops-up to ask if the password manager needs to be updated. If you say yes the nextcloud client works again.

Would be nice to have a fix for this, or even a better work-around would be good.

Latest Nextcloud client 3.0 for ios seems to fix this.

Will this fix with windows client ? and what is new addition ? Any place to update or this will update automatically

Dear All, i am still looking option to update domain ( AD) password in windows Nextcloud client

any luck or suggestion ?


Dear Santosh,

I guess I was in a similar situation, that the password was changed in the AD. Since the NC passwort is taken from the AD it is also change, but the client does not recognize it.

My solution was on a Windows PC

  • click on the NC icon
  • choose the NC
  • “…” -> logoff (actually it was done on the German version of NC so -> “Abmelden”)
  • NC-Client will stop
  • Restart the NC-Client and a window will be open. In this window, there is a button for Log-in (German -> “Anmelden”)
  • The webpage of the NC will be open and you can log in the webpage. Parallel the client will synchronize the pwd; in my case it took about 20 sec.
  • After the synncrhonisation, the client is again in the normal status
