'Path already shared with this group' after transfer-ownership of folder - 10.0.4


Steps to reproduce

  1. Large group share under dedicated owncloud user. Several contributors to group.
  2. User duplicates entire share into a subfolder of the 'master' share as a mistake (backup mistake)
  3. I use transfer-ownership on this duplicate folder (~3 folders deep of master share) to move it to their personal folder to sort out.
  4. After the operation completes, the master share from step 1 is showing as not shared in web interface. Also all group members lose the share from their clients, it doesn't show up in 'shared with me' for any group members.
  5. I try and re-share the folder from the dedicated file sharing user in the web interface and get 'Path already shared with this group'. (Also happens with a User that this was shared with specifically). However I am able to share it with individuals or groups it wasn't previously shared with.

Expected behaviour

Root share should never have disappeared after transfer-ownership command of specific folder within share

Actual behaviour

Root share vanished and now won't allow me to share again

Do you have the exact commands you were using by chance?


I've just checked my bash history and I can't find the command which is odd. It would have been sudo -u www-data php occ files:transfer-ownership --path="path/within/master/share" mastershareuser userwhomessedup

I remember the output summarising how many files had been moved and it said 2 shares had been restored which I found odd. I checked the user's profile and there were no shares on the transferred folder.
