Prevent users to delete a shared folder

Nextcloud version: 15.0.04
Operating system and version: Ubuntu Linux 18.04.1
Apache or nginx version: Apache version 2.4.29
PHP versio: 7.2.10

The issue you are facing:
When a folder is shared to some group, users of that group can rename or delete the name of the shared folder. The only way to keep it back to the users is to remove the sharing and do it again.

That problem has been discussed (and resolved very well with the owncloud platform

Is this the first time you’ve seen this error? (Y/N): N

Steps to replicate it:

  1. Share a folder with a group “A”
  2. Access with a user joined in group “A”
  3. Rename or delete shared folder

Sorry, no solution but this behaviour still shows up in Version 20.0.7. Is there any possibility to prevent users from removing shared folders?

@tblum Do you know the GroupFolders app? There you should get, what you need, i think :wink:

@jotoeri, thank you, groupfolders app is what I’ve been looking for. Though, in my case the app shows strange behaviour: I was not able to create any groupfolder on the site until I created the first one using occ. :thinking:

Yeah, i also had some similar strange behaviour lately. The first try to create a folder does not work, but if i try a second time for the same folder, then it works… Probably worth to create an issue on Github…
