Hi everybody, I'm having a problem with my owncloud server.
This is my situation, I have two owncloud servers in two different branch offices.
The two server heve LDAP bind with two different Active Directory domains.
Everything works grate except for the federation sharing.
When someone tries to share something from one owncloud server to the other
the share works perfectly but the users are shown with their Federated ID, that is created (in case of LDAP bind)
using the UUID of the user and the FQDN of the server.
I agree with your choice to use UUID to identify users, but in my opinion it should never been displayed.
The most annoying problem that comes to this is that users doesn't recognize who are sharing with,
and it makes the feature almost unusable.
P.S.: I know I'm not using the newest version of ownclod but I've checked the changelog and didn't see anything about this problem so I prefer not to upgrade without being sure it fix the problem. Thank you in advance
Steps to reproduce
- Setup two different owncloud server
- Setup the bind with two different Active Directory domains
- Share a file between a user of one server to an LDAP user of the other
- You'll see in the list of user the federated id that is not understandable by the users
I expect owncloud server to use the federated ID to share the file and translate it with the Displayed Name in the web UI
Now owncloud display the federated ID in the UI
