Nextcloud version (eg, 20.0.5):
Operating system and version (eg, Ubuntu 20.04):
Apache or nginx version (eg, Apache 2.4.25):
PHP version (eg, 7.4):
The issue you are facing:
We’re having an external SMB drive, which has home individual home folders for each user.
User1 has the share path /user1 and User2 has the Share Path /user2
The documentation states that you can use $user for replacing a path with the nextcloud login name.
The problem is, that for this connection, the nextcloud login name is not and cannot be changed to the user name required for the external SMB connection, so we set this to “User entered, store in database”.
Problem with this is, there is no variable to use the connection username inside the connection path - how to archive that?
Is this the first time you’ve seen this error? (Y/N): Y
Steps to replicate it:
- Create global external “SMB / CIFS” connection.
- Set authentication to “User entered”
- Try to use the user entered username in share or remote subfolder.
