(migrated from github issue #26651)
Is your feature request related to a problem? Please describe.
An Owncloud instance I administrate has lots of directories with tons of irrelevant files (eg temporary files or symlinks) on local and external storages. For now, we can use the
excluded_directories option to tell OC to completely ignore the directories matching some patterns and to not include them in DB.
We would love to migrate our users to Nextcloud, but we can’t find such option available. Nothing in the doc, and #6888 mention the app files_excludedirs which doesn’t seem to live anymore. I believe there is a few more people hoping for this feature as well.
Describe the solution you’d like
Would be great if this option was also available on NC, either natively or through a custom app.
Describe alternatives you’ve considered
Haven’t found any alternative.
If someone has enough time to develop this feature, a bonus would be to accept wildcards in patterns.
