Looking for a "Two-levels subscription" mechanism in OwnCloud.

michel.lanne@gmail.com

Good morning,

As a newcomer in the OwnCloud domain of interest, I'm trying to look for a way to create a two-levels access OwnCloud instance.

The first level would be made by the entry login/password required to access to the OwnCloud instance, login/password which would be sent to a large set of people authorised to access. Obviously , this login/password would be set by the OwnCloud instance creator, of course.

This first level would allow to all users to read and download the files present in the OwnCloud instance at that time, but would not allow to deposit any file.

To deposit files, each person already connected at first level would have to create its personal sub-domain by creating its own login/password of 2nd level (or maybe a domain name instead of a login). Only this second login/password would allow the user to put or remove files inside his dedicated space. This second level "login" may also be used as the "directory" name dedicated to the user.

To make ot short : everybody would be able to add or remove, or to re-download its own files, and would only be able to read/download the files put by all the other users, without beeing able to remove or change them.

Only then would there be good sharing conditions. The creator would only have to create the first level login/password, the users would register themselves alone.

I've looked around several documentation about OwnCloud, which make me think that it must be - nearly - easily makeable, but I've not found any clear way to do it ... Or if there are other mechanisms providing the same final result, please, let me know !

Any advice, welcome ..!  ;-)

Thank's by advance to the community !

If I understand correctly what you are asking, we have something similar ...

Everyone has a login.  Under each person there is a “shared” directory which shares read-only to everyone else on the system (and of course read/write to them) and anything else can be shared on a case by case basis.  When I log in, I see the “shared” directory, and can browse anything I wish below that, my shared files which I can browse and update, and my not shared tree which may be shared with someone specific, or not, at my desire.

Does that make sense?

additionally to that, you can also use the Guests app for another layer of users. You can manage their permissions via groups. But making the whole instance available for them to see by default may not work, only what the normal users want to share with them.
