Why can collectives not be shared via a link with a password?

On our system, passwords are enforced for link shares to external users.

When trying to share collectives via a link, an error is shown, stating that it is not allowed because passwords are enforced.

Is this a bug?

If not, what is logic behind this?

There is currently no way to set passwords for sharing a collective link. That would be a feature request, but not being able to create links sounds like a but.

The best would be if you can open individual tickets in the issue tracker at collectivecloud / Collectives · GitLab
