When using mattermost-desktop (the Electron bundled we interface), there’s 2 issues when posting URLs which point to a resource which requires login:
- if preview is enabled, it shows a preview of the login form. Instead it shouldn’t show any preview (or just a small message telling it couldn’t access the resource for preview).
- when clicking such a link, the browser is in some cases handed a wrong URL. E.g. for a private gitlab instance which redirects all URLs to
/users/sign_upwhen not logged in, all links pointing to that domain are rewritten by Mattermost to open the signup-page - which makes no sense when the browser handling the request is already logged into that site.
The second issue seems may have been recently introduced. I didn’t have it with Mattermost 3.7.1, but have it with 4.0.1 (both running on Linux).
Is there a known workaround to any of this?
