I do not really understand the way how nextcloud handles passwords for shared files and hope somebody can point me e. g. to the help or any other documents on this topic…
i can share files and folder e. g. based on somebodies e-mail address … not problem.
If I configure “Share by mail” in the settings to send a password by mail the password is sent in clear text to the recipient. I think in the past it was sent to me, and i could forward the password e. g. by a screenshot.
But there seem no way to recover this password e. g. if it lost.
The GUI (web or desktop client share feature) has a password field filled with dots.
**On the right side of this password file is an arrow pointing to the right … **
I can click on this arrow … but nothing happens.
I expected, that may trigger a password is resend … but this seems not the case.
So the only thing I can do in case of a lost password is to generate a new Password.
I case the setting “Send password by mail” unter “Share by mail” is not enabled the password is gone after enabling the share… I need to copy the password first, before enabling the share, otherwise i seem to have no chance to get the password again.
So i can handle the situation … but the usage seems a bit strange. Do i use this feature in a wrong way?
In the help i have not find any real information how to use this kind of stuff, so I would be happy if anybody could clarify this usage…
Last but not least:
The behavior was very similar over the last view releases, so I think the next cloud version is not really relevant, but currently I’m on 22.2.3 and the stable release channels says 22.2.8 is latest version, so I will update today (I think i have read 23 is already out?)
Thanks for any explanation
