Now in core: We are proud to announce that, starting with Moodle 3.6, this plugin has become part of Moodle core.
This means that, in Moodle 3.6 (or newer), you do not need to install any additional plugins. See the Nextcloud repository documentation in the Moodle Docs for details.

Administrators of Moodle 3.3 to 3.5 can use the previous (community-supported) version of the same plugin, ownCloud Repository. Later, when you upgrade to Moodle 3.6 (or newer), you can use the automated migration.

    Well actually you do. The inbuilt NextCloud feature does not feature all the functionality that was in the original plugin produced by yourselves. Option two from this list on the OwnCloud plugin page is not included in the inbuilt NextCloud feature rendering it more or less useless.
    1. UPLOAD works as usual, i.e. it uploads a copy, except that you don't need to download it first! Avoid the hassle of having to download files onto your computer first before you can re-upload them into Moodle – particularly useful on mobile devices, but also sweet on the desktop!
    2. LINK let's you select a particular file, but doesn't create a copy. That means that, if you change the file in ownCloud/Nextcloud later, it will magically change in Moodle, too. In the background this feature automatically creates a public link in ownCloud/Nextcloud and uses that link in Moodle – no further manual interaction required.
    3. ACCESS CONTROLLED LINKS means that the files reside at ownCloud/Nextcloud instead of being copied to Moodle. Nevertheless, you can be sure that, once uploaded, a file cannot be changed by students, i.e., even if they were the owner, their write permissions are revoked. Files are owned by a special ownCloud/Nextcloud account for Moodle that is responsible for granting correct access rights.

    I for my part am still using the original plugin.
