Description Olivier Hallot 2018-08-10 21:10:23 UTC
The CMIS (remote server) dialog has https://www.googleapis.com/drive/v2 as suggestion for a Windows share server.

The URL above is actually not the best Windows share to suggest, if even it is. A more generic URL such as https://myserver.com can fit as good example.

Step to reproduce
1) Open remote server dialog
2) Choose Windows share

expected results: A generic URL in the Server field
Actual result: "https://www.googleapis.com/drive/v2"

From the start center I did
1. Remote files
2. Add service
3. Type: Windows share

Host file read

Arch Linux 64-bit
Build ID: 1c59d021b3dd27c8c0255312bd0d53ad25965bab
CPU threads: 8; OS: Linux 4.18; UI render: default; VCL: gtk3_kde5;

Built on September 1st 2018

Same on Windows.
Comment 2 Mike Kaganski 2018-09-11 16:31:29 UTC
More specifically, the host box holds the suggestion left from last-active entry (even if the dialog itself hides the box for this server type).

Same here:

Anyway, I guess we should change this https://opengrok.libreoffice.org/xref/core/officecfg/registry/data/org/openoffice/Office/Common.xcu#444

Comment 5 Xisco Faulí 2018-09-18 22:12:51 UTC
So as Mike said in comment 2 this is a UI problem, my comment 3 is incorrect
