Public share of file is restricted?

Steps to reproduce

1.Public share is allowed


2. If I try to share a folder creating a public link, I obtain the normal window, with the choice of options on the level of sharing

3.If I try to share a file, the opening windows shows a limited choice of option. Only “view and download” is shown


Expected behaviour

Sharing a file should propose the same options as sharing a folder.

Actual behaviour

The choice of options is limited for the creation of the public link of the file. The fact that the file is inside the shared folder do not change the behavior.
The link obtained in sharing the folder allows to open and edit the file. So the options are well applied to the file, but through the link of the folder containing the file.

Hi, thank you for your feedback.

I found a feature request with this exact feature.

We will work on this feature to be included in oC 11 + Phoenix.


Can you paste a link to the feature request here?

It was a FR made by a Customer, so the information is private.

You can make a new FR in the core repo of ownCloud and we link that FR to the existing FR to give it more relevancy and urgency.


Thanks for your answers. So I will wait for the OC11…
Meanwhile, sharing the folder is OK.
