Password request for link share

Expected behaviour

I would like to have password forced always for read only and for read and write, but I would like to set it up ONE TIME only

Actual behaviour

If I share a folder with a public link I have found that I have to set up a password for read only, then I if check the modify options (because it was greyed out before password), but I have to rewrite the sharing password again because if I close the window the password that I previous wrote is no longer working. Why?

Steps to reproduce

  1. share a folder with owncloud
  2. choose public links
  3. create new link setting a password for read only
    4: Now check the modify permission
  4. If you close the window the password you wrote previously is no longer working, you have to retype it again!

Thanks for the report. The bug is confimed, and the proposed fix is in . It's expected to be ready for 10.0.9, meanwhile, as you've said, you'll need to rewrite the password if the permissions change.
