Recently I’ve been playing around with NextCloud 14 to give a talk on it and I’ve also confirmed this is an issue on my v13 instance. I’ve run into an oddity with contacts that I’ve never noticed before due to my previous usage. I’m hoping someone can tell me that I’m just overlooking a setting somewhere.
The issue is that if I’m in the web GUI and click on the contacts icon next to my user icon in the top right, I get an initial list of users. This list is a combination of local NextCloud users and my contacts. When I start typing it filters down on users as expected. However, when I click on the bottom item “Show all contacts” I am taken to my Contacts page, but I don’t see any local NextCloud users there.
The local users are set so their profile picture, name, and email are set to “Contacts” which indicates on the drop-down that it is available to the local users and trusted servers.
So the questions are:
- Should I be able to see other local users in my contacts?
- Where are the setting(s) that control this feature if its something that might just be turned off by default?
- Is this a known bug? (I did some searches before posting, but didn’t find anything relevant)
- If this is expected behavior, why does the “Show all contacts” take me to the contacts page without displaying local users?
