Standard path for users in ldap group

Nextcloud version: 26.0.3
Operating system and version: Ubuntu 22.04.2 LTS
Apache: 2.4.52
PHP version: 8.1.2

Dear ladies and gentleman,

hope I am at the right category.

I need help or ideas to setup the following:

I want to set for all Users, which are in a specific LDAP group, an shared home directory.
For example:

I have an Service User “S” who shares a folder “service” to a LDAP group.
User “A” is in the LDAP group and got the shared service folder.
Goal is that the User “A” will automatically is in the service folder instead of the own workspace when they log in.

Other thing I want to change:
The standard is “Schreibgeschützt” and I want to change the standard to “Dateien ablegen (nur hochladen)”. Is there any way to do this?

Thank you for your help :slight_smile:

It is not possible to have shared home directories, unless you make it as symbolic links by the OS itself, and even then it is not going to work.

You can use the App “groupfolders” or create a shared folder in some user (like a dedicated “shares” user) and share it with that LDAP group. To then prevent users from storing any files in their personal space, make their quota 0, and delete all folders (visible and not the appdata_, cache and other NC folders), and then they only have the shared folder and files as possible storage. However it is a half-bad solution.

Thank you for your answer. I currently use your solution.
