Yeah, you! Have you heard that recently we‘ve proudly released ownCloud 9.1 Beta2? Well, now we need your help testing it to make sure that owncloud 9.1 is well tested and that as many bugs as possible are fixed before the official release. Check out the full feature list to see what’s new!
Here is a list of what we could most use your help testing and how:
The parts of ownCloud 9.1 Beta2 that need the most thorough testing are the ones related to authentication. In this release, a lot of the code that is related to authentication, was refactored and improved. So this needs regression testing, such as checking whether the regular login still works, the LDAP login, etc. There’s also token based authentication, which can be found on a user’s personal page. Create a device token and then use it as the password for the desktop client, mobile client or any other Webdav client. Then, with token based authentication, go ahead and try removing sessions in the personal page to kick out the clients. Disabling users from the command line to “occ user:disable” will also have this same effect.
To test two-factor authentication, you can use this test app. The app only enables the two factor mode and doesn’t send any challenges; it is intended to test the core’s two-factor architecture only.
For other features please check the list and the linked tickets which usually contains a list of steps or an explanation about the feature. If something is not clear, feel free to ask in the ticket for more detailed test instructions.
We need to make sure that everything still works! 🙂
Here are a few examples of how you can help:
– Setup a new server with Apache/Nginx with Sqlite/MySQL/MariaDB/PostgreSQL
– Try updating from an old server instance full of data to this new build
– Try encryption/sharing/versions in any combination to make sure it still works
You can find test plans here. If you feel that something is missing in the QA repo, test steps, or if there is something you tested yourself, which is missing from the plans, please open an issue or pull request in the QA repo.
For any issues you may find within the server, please report them here using the issue template. If the issue is with a specific app, such as “activity,” “gallery,” etc, each app has their own github repository in which you can create a report.
Please note: The current desktop and mobile client versions do not support two-factor authentication yet; this will be added later on. However, it is possible to generate a device-specific password and to enter that into the current client versions.
Please review changes in 9.1 for more details. Thanks, in advance, for helping out and happy testing!
