Display of duplicate documents broken in v4.0

Post by RonObvious »

Since upgrading to v4.0 the "duplicate documents" display shows me documents if they have the same filename, even if their file content is different. For example, if I upload two different files, both with the filename 2021-06-01.pdf, they will show up as duplicates. On the other hand, if I upload the same file twice under different filenames it will not be detected as duplicate.

I'm not sure whether this is a bug or expected behavior, but for me it feels like a regression compared to v3.5. The "duplicate documents" view does not rally show duplicate files anymore (only duplicate file names), and finding real duplicate files is not possible.

Any thoughts?

*Update* as I'm still not sure whether this is a bug or intended, I opened https://gitlab.com/mayan-edms/mayan-edms/-/issues/1010.
