I did some more testing and applied this patch https://github.com/owncloud/contacts/pull/1068 to my owncloud. This fixes the issue for me. I have done it manually since there is no official update which fixes the issue. If there are others who can test this on their installation maybe a few more comments on github help to speed up an official fix that non-technical people can profit from it as well.
Addressbook sync and telefone app - favorite number is always reset to private number
I’m using an Blackberry Priv with Android 6.0.1 and sync my address book with mailbox.org.
Everything works fine, except if I mark an contact as favorite in the telefon app (gets marked with an star) and mark a number different than “privat” as standard, this information gets reset after every sync. I understand, that there is no field on the server to save this information,
For testing I’ve just changed 1 contact on the phone.
In the extended log I can see, that this contact is uploaded.
But now the contact on the server (without this information) is different than local and gets downloaded during the next sync and the standard telefon number is overwritten locally.
Is there any way to avoid this cycle?
Please ask mailbox.org because it seems that the server always sends back a modified VCard.
Ich habe beim mailbox.org-Support angefragt, daraufhin wurde es OX gemeldet und als Bug bestätigt. Sobald ein Patch verfügbar ist, soll es getestet und eingespielt werden…
Sorry for the comment in German… Here the translation:
I informed the mailbox.org-Support about this issue and they filled a bug report to Open-Xchange. They confirmed it’s a bug and ones a patch is available, mailbox.org will test and roll-out.
Works for me now. Tested it for telephone number and email fields.
