UBC Mathematics: MathNet FAQ [Anonymous Upload Nextcloud/Owncloud]

Question: How do I create an anonymous upload using Nextcloud/ownCloud?
Date: Sept 10, 2020

Getting Started

  1. Log in to ownCloud
  2. Create dropbox folder
  3. Share this folder using "Share link"
    [x] Allow editing
    [x] Hide file listing
    [optional] password protect
    [optional] set expiration date

Cut and paste the link and publish it. As with any public submission, you have to protect against

  • upload of malicious data
  • overrun of data (you have a 10Gb total cap)
  • attribution to submitter -- there's no real way to authenticate who the submitter is. You should develop a convention for naming files if you need to to attribute this to someone. Filename collisions are handled automatically by ownCloud.

Our Nextcloud/ownCloud cap is small, 10Gb. So if you need more share storage, use UBC OneDrive which has 1Tb quota. Please check our FAQ web page for "How do i get UBC MS OneDrive?".
