i’m not sure if the app authors of this app are reading this forums so i think you could try to request this functionality directly here: https://github.com/owncloud/brute_force_protection/issues

So the feature does not exist, right?

i’m not sure because i’m not using this app. But the configuration possibilities listed at https://doc.owncloud.com/server/10.3/admin_manual/configuration/server/security/brute_force_protection.html looks quite basic and if you can’t find further configuration / menu options for this app after enabling it then i think the feature doesn’t exist. :frowning_face:

Yes it looks like it doesn’t exist at all. No worries I’ll ask on GitHub then, thank you anyway.


It would be nice if there is also an occ console command for managing brute force procetcion and banning / whitelisting users and ip addresses.
