Mattermost ONLYOFFICE integration plugin
Installing ONLYOFFICE Docs
You need an instance of ONLYOFFICE Docs (Document Server) that is resolvable and connectable both from Mattermost 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 Mattermost directly.
ONLYOFFICE Docs and Mattermost can be installed either on different computers, or on the same machine. If you use one machine, set up a custom port for Document Server.
The easiest way to install an instance of ONLYOFFICE Docs is to use Docker.
