WebDAV with Basic Authentication
Basic Authentication is disabled by default in oCIS because of security considerations. In order to make the following Rclone commands work the oCIS administrator needs to enable Basic Authentication eg. by setting the the environment variable
Please consider to use Rclone with OpenID Connect instead.
For the usage of a WebDAV remote with Rclone see also the Rclone documentation
First of all we need to set up our credentials and the WebDAV remote for Rclone. In this example we do this by setting environment variables. You might also set up a named remote or use command line options to achieve the same.
export RCLONE_WEBDAV_VENDOR=owncloud export RCLONE_WEBDAV_URL=https://ocis.owncloud.test/remote.php/webdav/ export RCLONE_WEBDAV_USER=einstein export RCLONE_WEBDAV_PASS=$(rclone obscure relativity)
Please note that
RCLONE_WEBDAV_PASSis not set to the actual password, but to the value returned by
rclone obscure <password>.
We now can use Rclone to sync the local folder
/test in your oCIS home folder.
rclone sync :local:/tmp :webdav:/test
If your oCIS doesn’t use valid SSL certificates, you may need to use
rclone --no-check-certificate sync ....
