Cyberduck Mountain Duck CLI

#3818 closed enhancement (duplicate)

Lookup UID and GID

Cc: Architecture:


When I'm working via scp I want to see user name and group name columns, because when I forget to set them correctly for new files and directories, websites of other users do not work, because the files then are owned by me instead of them. In the command shell using ssh and ls -l I see the names, but in cyberduck they are currently provided only in the Info window. Sometime cyberduck only displays the ID of user and group there. Usually it should be able to retrieve the names from /etc/passwd of the external server, if it is a unix machine. May be there is also an API for retrieving a username from the users ID and the group name from the group ID.

there are two things:

first I was blind and did not detect where to enable displaying the columns. second, it displays only the ID numbers (better than nothing), but does not lookup the names. Could it be extended to resolving the names i.e. by looing tonto the servers /etc/passwd and /etc/group.
