Automatically Generated Public Links - Possible?


#1

Hi there,

New to OwnCloud, interesting software! Just curious if it’s possible to have a public link generated automatically after uploading a file to a folder? I know public links can be created easily enough with a few clicks, so to be clear I’m specifically asking about the automatic side of things. Any help would be appreciated.

I don’t think so. At least I don’t know of such a function.

Any use case for this? You can share the folder instead of the each file.

Thanks for the replies!

Use case would be for clients, I don’t want to complicate sharing assets files etc… by having them install anything.

Link based works better for them but I want the folder system to work as normal for us in house, if you follow.

Any other comments before I start tinkering myself would be appreciated.

Thanks.

@grant Not sure if this covers your needs. I’m using the Thunderbird Add-On “Nextcloud for Filelink”. Still works perfectly with ownCloud. It creates the links for me, whatever I attach to a message. And I can easily share these links.

Thanks for the reply. I will look into “Nextcloud for Filelink”, sounds like it should do the job!
