I am using owncloud-client on fedora.
I was using older version of client where I was used to hide my owncloud server credentials with parameter “-n” this is using .netrc file
Now I update client to 5.2.1 and “-n” is missing. Now my credentials are in clear text in my script
owncloudcmd had option -n to use netrc file.
My credentials were hidden
no option to use netrc “-n”
Steps to reproduce
install new owncloud-client on linux, for example fedora 39
try to use owncloudcmd in script with option -n
there is no -n option
working version 2.3.2
not working (tested) version 5.2.1
Operating system: fedora 39, opensuse leap 15.5
Client package (From ownCloud or distro) (Linux only): from Owncloud
i think the community can’t offer much help here because it seems this possibility has been removed by the ownCloud team in the change below. A follow-up request to re-introduce this support seems to exist but has been closed so i think you could ask the ownCloud people over there on the reason.
Oops, they did it again.
Dropping any standard features, instead of refactoring the code to keep it, is a bad practice. And refuse to correct a questionable decision, well, I’m missing the words for that.
These are the neat little but sharp edges, why I sometimes really hate ownCloud.
