Encrypted files are stored un-encrypted after editing

Post by Marc » Sat Apr 06, 2019 2:49 pm

Hi *,
we use version 5.2.8 CE with nextcloud in a non profit life saving organisation (https://DLRG.de/) to share information.
We use encrypted Excel files (for privacy reasons) on our local computer, sync them with nextcloud and sometimes edit them on the nextcloud server with ONLYOFFICE in a web browser.
While starting the session ONLYOFFICE asks for the password and the file can be edited and saved.
... but the file is now un-encrypted!
What can we do / do we have to do that the file is stored encrypted again - like Excel does it?
Thanks
Marc

Hello,

ONLYOFFICE can only open password-protected files, after that the protection is lost. There is a warning prior to opening the document http://prntscr.com/n8ygh0

Please, post questions about server versions on our developers forum dev.onlyoffice.org
