Change link name in Nextcloud

Hi everyone, does somebody know how to change a link name in Nextcloud? Currently Nextcloud creates an id if you share a picture or anything, but for our use case we would like to have a specific ending of the link - like 1234.jpg - because we would like to use specific ID’s.

Thanks for your help in advance.


I do believe there’s an app for customising your shares. As you don’t list your version of Nextcloud there’s no guarantee it’ll be compatible,

Two months ago this app was made NC13 compatible. So should work with all available NC version.

Just proceed like this:

  • download
  • extract the file’s content (should be sharerenamer-master)
  • execute mv sharerenamer-master /var/www/nextcloud/apps/sharerenamer (adapt path to your environment; important is to rename “sharerenamer-master” to “sharerenamer” only!)
  • adapt file permissions
  • enable the app via web GUI or occ command
  • enjoy :slight_smile:

I can confirm that this app works in NC13 stable. I hope it is added to the AppStore soon.
