The issue you are facing:

When I share a directory with a person via email, I’m able to select filedrop as an option for that recipient. Is there a way to make the options the same for both LDAP and “non-LDAP” users?:


however when the recipient exists in our LDAP server, a totally different set of options is shown for that user.


The person I’ve shared with is not included in my Nextcloud Login filter so I was expecting the user to be “unknown” by Nextcloud and offer the same sharing options as a non-ldap email address.

Is this the first time you’ve seen this error? Y:

Steps to replicate it:

  1. share file via email address of non-LDAP person and “filedrop” option is available
  2. share file via email with LDAP person and different options are presented
  3. expecting the sharing options to be the same for both persons
