View (and not download) public shared files

9.0.x
help

#1

Hi,
I have a public file that I want to link to, but it downloads the file to my computer, instead of display it in-broswer.
As far as I know, it not about my broswer settings, as I can view files from other sites in-browser.

An example:
http://pdgg.herzog.ac.il/owncloud/s/77OOcXMgpeHRF0C/download?path=%2F&files=al-atar11_bar.pdf

How can I make it viewable in-browser?

Thanks,
Esthy

Hi,

newer versions of oC are always sending a X-Download-Options: noopen header which means that files are always downloaded instead of shown.

Short hint to your install: Seems you're running oC 9.0.2 which is outdated. Before reporting any issues in the future please also update to at least 9.0.5: https://owncloud.org/changelog/#latest9.0

Hi,
First of all - thanks, I asked the IT to upgrade.
So now I have the address
http://pdgg.herzog.ac.il/owncloud/index.php/s/77OOcXMgpeHRF0C/download?path=%2F&files=al-atar11_bar.pdf

Is there any way to make it show in browser? any kind of a bypass for this header?

Thanks,
Esthy

You can either dig through the source code of oC and remove the part where this header is set or enable the files_pdfviewer App which should also show pdf files shared by link.

Edit Btw your link also contains the word "download" so you have chosen the wrong link

http://pdgg.herzog.ac.il/owncloud/index.php/s/77OOcXMgpeHRF0C#pdfviewer

works for me and is showing the pdf in the browser

Hi,
I've tried to find another link, with no success, so came to ask here.
I know I got the download - it's from the download button. But I couldn't find any other link (that can be shared without username&password.

About the built-in oC viewer - you're absolutely right, but there's a reason I need to have the original file name -
I wan't to be able to follow the original file, link to it with an alias to the beginning of the path (such as my own domain, as 'clean' as I can get) - so I need the end of the address to show the original filename.

I hope I can find a way, otherwise, I'll stick with the download option.

Thanks for all your help!
