Installing ONLYOFFICE Docs
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.
Installing Strapi ONLYOFFICE integration plugin
To start using ONLYOFFICE Docs with Strapi, follow these steps:
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:
"script-src": ["'self'", "https:", "http:"],
"frame-src": ["'self'", "https:", "http:"],
If such a config already exists, you just need to add directives.
Install the plugin in your Strapi project:
npm install onlyoffice-stapi --save
After successful installation, you have to rebuild the admin UI so it'll include this plugin. To rebuild and restart Strapi, run:
# using yarn
# using npm
npm run build
npm run develop
Configuring Strapi ONLYOFFICE integration plugin
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. 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 Strapi settings page. In the ONLYOFFICE Docs config file, specify the same secret key and enable the validation.
