Cannot edit user groups despite being admin

Nextcloud version : Nextcloud 18.0.2

Hello community,

the little pencil symbol in the user management does not show up in my nextcloud. Is there perhaps a setting I am missing. Should I not be able to edit group memberships as soon as I am made admin? I can create groups but I cannot add members to them. There is one other user who is also admin who is able to edit group memberships. Are we missing some setting?

Kind regards

Hi Hanno,

Have you tried it with a other browser or logged out and cleared your browsers cache restart the browser and try again.

If your in the admin group you should be able to edit users

good luck,


Hi Vincent,

thanks for suggestions! I have tried that but doesn’t change a thing.

What I have found: now that I added new users (before it was only me and other admin), i can also edit those users that I added. But I still cannot edit my own account or the account of the other user (also admin) who invited me to the nextcloud…

Are there any ‘deeper’ admin settings somewhere that i might not be aware of?

Kind regards

Probably this issue?
