LibreOffice Vanilla supported URL Schemes

LibreOffice Vanilla:
macOS Sierra Version 10.12

After installation of LibreOffice custom URL protocols "vnd.sun.star.webdav" and "vnd.sun.star.webdavs" aren't in Info.plist file and therefore url links with these protocols aren't bound to LibreOffice.

As for https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/ReleaseNotes/5.1#WebDav_Improvements LibreOffice supports this protocols and would be nice to open such url's with LibreOffice by default.

For Windows and Linux are workarounds described in this bugs (bug 98881 and bug 65261).
For MacOS after adding "vnd.sun.star.webdav" and "vnd.sun.star.webdavs" to URL Schemes in Info.plist, LibreOffice stops opening with error: "Sandbox registration failed: The code signature is not valid: The operation couldn't be completed. (OSStatus error -67030)"

Andras: having noticed you had made some changes about plist, thought you might be interested in this one.
Comment 2 QA Administrators 2017-11-03 08:04:34 UTC Comment hidden (obsolete)
Comment 3 eisa01 2020-05-10 11:56:19 UTC
Still present

3.3 didn't have any URL Schemes defined in Info.plist

Should be a very simple issue to fix (almost a one-liner)
Comment 4 eisa01 2020-05-16 12:47:43 UTC
I have submitted a patch for this

Comment 5 Commit Notification 2020-05-16 18:40:21 UTC
Eivind Samseth committed a patch related to this issue.
It has been pushed to "master":


tdf#103644: Add support for vnd.sun.star.webdav on macOS

It will be available in 7.0.0.

The patch should be included in the daily builds available at
https://dev-builds.libreoffice.org/daily/ in the next 24-48 hours. More
information about daily builds can be found at:

Affected users are encouraged to test the fix and report feedback.
Comment 6 eisa01 2020-05-20 20:52:41 UTC
So this should in principle be fixed. LO opens if I feed the vnd.sun.star.webdav:// url scheme in Safari

As I don't use this myself I can't verify that LO handles it properly internally though
Comment 7 Mike Kaganski 2021-06-28 10:28:31 UTC
Oh, this should had been a duplicate of tdf#98881, and resolved WONTFIX (and the commit d3de490437df4c9093f32e97fc185066d64c0f46 possibly reverted, for the sake of use of office URI schemes - implemented in 5.3 [1]).
