Passwords versions are simply the year and month of the release of the version.
The exact version scheme is <year>.<month>.<bugfix>.
In accordance with SemVer2.0.0, only the first version of a new year will introduce breaks in backward compatibility.
With the first release of the year, the support for any Nextcloud version but the latest as well as any PHP version without active support will be ended.
LSR/Legacy Support Releases
Legacy support releases are intended for systems which run a PHP version that is not supported by the passwords app, but by any version of Nextcloud that is supported by the passwords app.
We intend to provide LSR builds as long as Nextcloud itself supports any PHP version, however as we are dependent on third party software to create these builds there is no guarantee for this.
LSR builds are generated by an automated process during the release which rewrites the source code of the app to work with an older PHP language level.
This means that the source code of LSR builds does not match the source code in our repositories and the build is also not tested before the release.
Since systems using LSR builds do not meet the minimum requirements, no official support is provided by us.
If you experience any issues, visit the forum or the chat groups for help.
Passwords uses several background jobs to process data.
To ensure that these run as intended, it is recommended to configure Nextcloud to run those jobs trough cron.
Using webcron or ajax for background jobs will cause long delays when passwords are shared since these options will only execute one background job with each call.
Using ajax for background jobs may also cause unexpected issues since this will execute background jobs in the user scope instead of the global scope.
More information can be found in the documentation.
We support the current version of Chrome and Firefox and assume that most browsers based on these will work as well.
We do not support specific configurations or browser extensions.
We support only versions of PHP with active support by the PHP community.
The app may run with older PHP versions but this is not tested and bug reports with an unsupported version will be ignored.
To provide all api features, passwords may use third party services depending on the settings.
The following list contains all domains which may provide these services.
However some local service providers like Pageres and the favicon finder may contact any domain as requested via the api.
The user handbook also makes direct requests to external servers from the user browser and your server.
