Jira ONLYOFFICE integration app
This app enables users to edit office documents from Jira Software using ONLYOFFICE Docs.
The connector is available in the official Atlassian Marketplace.
Installing ONLYOFFICE Docs
You will need an instance of ONLYOFFICE Docs (Document Server) that is resolvable and connectable both from Jira and any end clients. If that is not the case, use the official ONLYOFFICE Docs documentation page. ONLYOFFICE Docs must also be able to POST to Jira directly.
The easiest way to start an instance of ONLYOFFICE Docs is to use Docker.
Installing Jira ONLYOFFICE integration app
Upload the compiled target/onlyoffice-jira-app.jar to Jira on the Manage apps page.
The latest compiled package files are available here and on Atlassian Marketplace.
You can also install the app from the Jira administration panel:
Configuring Jira ONLYOFFICE integration app
Find the uploaded app on the Manage apps page. Click Configure and enter the name of the server with ONLYOFFICE Docs installed:http://documentserver/
where the documentserver is the name of the server with the ONLYOFFICE Docs installed. The address must be accessible for the user browser and from the Jira server. The Jira server address must also be accessible from ONLYOFFICE Docs for correct work.
Starting from version 7.2, JWT is enabled by default and the secret key is generated automatically to restrict the access to ONLYOFFICE Docs and for security reasons and data integrity. Specify your own Secret key on the Jira administration page. In the ONLYOFFICE Docs config file, specify the same secret key and enable the validation.
Sometimes your network configuration might not allow the requests between Jira and ONLYOFFICE Docs using the public addresses. The Advanced server settings section allows you to set the ONLYOFFICE Docs address for internal requests from Jira and the returning Jira address for internal requests from ONLYOFFICE Docs.
Compiling Jira ONLYOFFICE integration app
If you plan to compile the Jira ONLYOFFICE integration app yourself (e.g. edit the source code and compile it afterwards), follow these steps:
Using Jira ONLYOFFICE integration app
With the ONLYOFFICE integration app, you can view, edit and co-author office files attached to tasks right within your Jira dashboard.
To edit documents, click the ONLYOFFICE Docs icon next to the name of an attachment - the corresponding online editor will be opened in a new tab.
After the editing session is over, a document with all the changes will be saved as a new attachment. You will recognize it by the same name with a postfix. If you're editing an attachment collaboratively, the changes are saved only after the last user quits the editor.
How it works
The ONLYOFFICE integration follows the API documented here.
