Files added by script 'index_filenames.php' will never be synced in nextcloud client

I think it may be a bug.

I use the script 'index_filenames.php' to index new files generated by other programs.

After running 'index_filenames.php', new files are indexed and showed in web page. It's OK.

But nextcloud client will never sync these new files until I upload some new files from web site.

After some research, I found the reason:

Although script 'index_filenames.php' can index new files, it will not update the 'last modified time' of home folder.

So, the value of field `getlastmodified` in response of API `/remote.php/dav/files/admin/` will not change.

Because the value of`getlastmodified` not changed, nextcloud client doesn't know some files are add to filerun, these new files will never be synced.

Sorry for not getting any responses here.

The solution for getting new files synced, would be to use the command touch to change the date on a root folder that contains the new files.
