Strapi ONLYOFFICE integration plugin

This plugin enables users to edit office documents from Strapi using ONLYOFFICE Docs.

  • Currently, the following document formats can be edited: DOCX, XLSX, PPTX.
  • The following formats are available for viewing: DOC, DOCX, DOCM, DOT, DOTX, DOTM, ODT, FODT, OTT, RTF, TXT, HTML, HTM, MHT, XML, PDF, DJVU, FB2, EPUB, XPS, OXPS, XLS, XLSX, XLSM, XLT, XLTX, XLTM, ODS, FODS, OTS, CSV, PPS, PPSX, PPSM, PPT, PPTX, PPTM, POT, POTX, POTM, ODP, FODP, OTP.
  • The plugin will create a new Open in ONLYOFFICE / Edit in ONLYOFFICE menu option within the document library for office documents. This allows multiple users to collaborate in real time and save back those changes to Strapi.

You need an instance of ONLYOFFICE Docs (Document Server) that is resolvable and connectable both from Strapi 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 Strapi directly.

The easiest way to install an instance of ONLYOFFICE Docs is to use Docker.

To start using ONLYOFFICE Docs with Strapi, follow these steps:

  1. Change the Strapi middlewares file: strapi/config/middlewares.js.

    To allow inserting a frame with the editor and loading api.js, replace the strapi::security line in this file with the following:

    {
        name: "strapi::security",
        config: {
            contentSecurityPolicy: {
                useDefaults: true,
                directives: {
                    "script-src": ["'self'", "https:", "http:"],
                    "frame-src": ["'self'", "https:", "http:"],
                },
            },
        },
    }
    

    If such a config already exists, you just need to add directives.

  2. Install the plugin in your Strapi project:

    npm install onlyoffice-stapi --save
  3. After successful installation you have to rebuild the admin UI so it'll include this plugin. To rebuild and restart Strapi run:

    # using yarn yarn build yarn develop # using npm npm run build npm run develop

You can configure ONLYOFFICE app via Strapi Dashboard -> Settings -> Global settings -> ONLYOFFICE. On the settings page, enter:

  • Document server address. The URL of the installed ONLYOFFICE Document Server.

  • Document server JWT secret key. To protect your documents from unauthorized access, enable JWT (further information can be found here).

Users are able to view, edit, and co-author documents added to the Strapi Media Library. Documents available for viewing/editing can be found and sorted on the ONLYOFFICE file page within Strapi. The editor opens by clicking on the file name.

Access rights

  • Opening files for editing: roles with the Update (crop, details, replace) + delete permission setting.
  • Opening files for viewing: roles with the Access the Media Library permission setting.

The ONLYOFFICE integration follows the API documented here.
