Nextcloud LDAP authentication with email only

The nethserver users are stored in a LDAP directory on NS. They can login to Nextcloud only with their email address, not with their name. Can that be changed?
Also in Nextcloud they cannot edit their personal data like adding a phone number, address etc. But in the LDAP directory their account cannot be extended by these data, as far as I can see.
Thanks for hints to overcome these restrictions.

Hi @rasi

I myself use only AD, but there are plenty of similiarities…
One of the main ones is: both are based on LDAP.

PHPLDAPadmin can add and modify attributes in NethServers LDAP (or AD), depending what you’re using…

In Nextcloud, also when using AD, certain attributes must be set via directory, if the directory contains an entry. Example: User-Photo. User can add one via GUI, only if the AD or LDAP attribute is empty. If it contains anything, it’s only set-able via the directry. PHPLDAPadmin can import photos eg as jpeg…

My 2 cents

PS: Be careful with permissions and whom you allow what!

All of a sudden there is a new problem with Nextcloud: neither the Administrator nor any user can login.
In the httpd error_log it says:
“Cannot serve directory /usr/share/nextcloud/apps/files/: No matching DirectoryIndex (index.php,index.html) found, and server-generated directory index forbidden by Options directive.”
What is that? Any idea?
