Why I can't select a group in the "Exclude groups from sharing" field in the sharing section

Nextcloud version: 14.0.3
Operating system and version: Debian GNU/Linux 9 (stretch) (Version 9.6)
Apache or nginx version: Apache/2.4.25 (Debian)
PHP version: PHP 7.0.30-0+deb9u1

The issue you are facing:

at first, I want to thank all participants for the great nextcloud software!
I updated to nextcloud 14 a few weeks ago (coming from nextcloud 13).
Everything is fine but there is one exception: I can’t select a group (can’t fill something in the fields) in the “Exclude groups from sharing” field in the sharing section".
Is this a software bug or are the settings wrong?
Thanks for your help!

A screenshot with my share settings:

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

Steps to replicate it:

  1. As admin go to settings, then go to sharing
  2. There I can’t fill something in the “Exclude groups from sharing” field

Same Problem here…

two questions as I am having issues too
Can you share?
Can you make changes to the share options and are the changes persistent?

(In my case both answers are no…)


Can you share?

yes, sharing is possible, everything is working normal (with the exception of the ““Exclude groups from sharing” field”).

Can you make changes to the share options and are the changes persistent?

yes, I can make changes and the are persistent

no idea…?

Same with Nextcloud version 14.0.4

Should i report a bug?
Thank you.

Same with Nextcloud version 14.0.6

yes… why not?

Hi all,

I appreciate I’m reopening an old thread but I’ve just encountered the same problem with 17.0.5. Just looking at the developer tools console output in Chrome I get the following error:

I’ve just reported this as a bug.

would you be so nice, @ianwild , and link the issereport here as an answer? - thanks in advance

@JimmyKater ah you beat me to it: Github has been down for the past 30 mins so was going to edit my previous message once it was back up. The issue is here: https://github.com/nextcloud/server/issues/20619

Hi again,

After some more investigation I can see that the problem is exactly the same as that described in this issue here: https://github.com/nextcloud/server/issues/13647. I was excluding groups that had been deleted. To solve the issue you’ll need to follow the instructions given here: https://github.com/nextcloud/server/issues/13647#issuecomment-577064118

Hope this helps anyone else encountering this issue.
