Is there any way for group admins to add new users to their group?


#1

Steps to reproduce

  1. Login as a user who is a group admin for a group (and not a OC server admin).
  2. Browse to the Users page
  3. The only users in the list are already part of the group.

Expected behaviour

I am looking for a method to allow group admins to add new users to their group.

Actual behaviour

There is no method for group admins to add a new user to their group.

Server configuration

Operating system:

ubuntu 14

Web server:

Apache

Database:

Mysql

ownCloud version: (see ownCloud admin page)

10.0.3.3

Signing status (ownCloud 9.0 and above):

not applicable

Are you using external storage, if yes which one: local/smb/sftp/...

local

Are you using encryption: yes/no

yes

Are you using an external user-backend, if yes which one: LDAP/ActiveDirectory/Webdav/...

LDAP

LDAP configuration (delete this part if not used)

I can't share this for security and policy reasons.

Hi,

the feature you want to use is called custom groups in ownCloud.

Did you read my post before replying?

You want normal users to become group admins and then add other users to their groups, right?

This is possible with custom groups in owncloud. As a normal group admin you can't add other users.

Oh I see, it's a completely new feature.
I thought it was just a new name for groups.
Ok I'm installing the plugin.

Thanks

Can regular groups be converted into custom groups?

It is a new feature

I always read what people write before replying

Normal groups can not converted to custom groups
