Guest users creating from client app

Expected behaviour

I’m missing an option to easy share files/folders with guest type users creating them on fly when typing email address into share field. It’s possible in web interface but I’m missing it from desktop client level.

Actual behaviour

Currently can’t put unknown email address and create guest user on fly from desktop client.

Steps to reproduce

  1. Try to share file from desktop client
  2. In share field type new email address
  3. There should be information like in web interface “Add email@address”

Template for output < 10 lines

  1. Client logfile: Output of owncloud --logwindow or owncloud --logfile log.txt
    (On Windows using cmd.exe, you might need to first cd into the ownCloud directory)

  2. Web server error log:

  3. Server logfile: ownCloud log (data/owncloud.log):

Remember, the oc client is, as the name suggest, just a client to sync your local stuff with the server. But IMHO it was never an admin tool.
