UUID for documents


Librairies in Seafile are identified by UUIDs in the URL, making links protected against the renaming of librairies.

Unfortunately, there is no such mechanism for folders or documents: it you share a link to a folder or a document and rename it or any folder in its path, the URL changes and the user gets a 404.

Are there any plan on implementing links based on UUIDs for documents and folders?

Thanks a lot!

The UUID feature is already presented in the Pro edition. It requires an additional component and work with MySQL database only.

The SeafileDocs community edition will also include such a feature.
