Nextcloud LDAP Users but no Groups

I have installed Nextcloud 12.0.5 on UCS 4.2 and it worked not well.
I can share documents in nextcloud to all 1000 pupil. I see them all in the sharing field. I can just find the group admin (and admin-fps and nc-admin), but not to a group like “fps-5a” or other classes.

I used the standard installation on ucs.
I set all users to “in nextcloud available” with 1GB quota.
I set all groups to “in nextcloud available”.
I use the standard LDAP Request for groups in nextcloud: (&(objectclass=nextcloudGroup)(nextcloudEnabled=1))
I installed all twice on an secondary hardware, same problem.

Does somebody see a mistake?
Kind regards Holger

Did you check whether the group base fits? In Nextcloud’s LDAP settings see Advanced → Directory settings → Base Group Tree.

Thanks for your replay. That might be the misstake:
Nextcloud: Base Group Tree: cn=groups,dc=info,dc=tm
class in UCS (imported via csv):

Is it better to change my groups in UCS or the Base group tree?

I changed the Base Group Tree to ou=fps, dc=info, dc=tm and it works!


Glad it helped.

Changing the group base in Nextcloud is less invasive and reduces the risk that a changed structure explodes leads to issues in potential other applications (ideally it shouldn’t, still there’s the chance).
