      In the case that a client use templates (automated folder structure), they may have many folders with the same name. Previously, as soon as one of those folders was synchronized, it became not possible to synchronize another one as it created conflicts.
      Synchronization roots local folders names now includes the names of the remote parents folders, making them more unique and preventing conflicts errors.

      Description

      Review handling of sync roots to prevent name conflicts.

      Some clients use templates (automated folder structure), they have many folders with the same name; As soon as one of those folders is synchronized, it becomes not possible to synchronize another one as it creates a conflict. A way to solve this issue could be to use a more specific folder name on the desktop side, that would include at least the parent and great parent names. Ex:

      Given the folder structure:

      • Project A
        • Project’s documents
          • Specifications
          • Mockups
          • Screenshots
      • Project B
        • Project’s documents
          • Specifications
          • Mockups
          • Screenshots

      If user subscribes to both screenshots folders, on its desktop, at the root of Nuxeo Drive local folder s.he will have two folders (see screenshot).

      Nevertheless, the folder names in the Nuxeo repository would remain, “Screenshots”.
