The Collabora Connector Application is an integration of the Collabora Online . It provides the ability to edit collaboratively XWiki attachments that are part of the office suite (i.e. document, spreadsheet or presentation file formats), but also to create one on the fly and save it as a page attachment.

For the application to work, a Collabora server needs to be configured, accordingly to their documentation, and the server address then added to the application administration page.

Usage

Once the extension is active, you will see a new option at the bottom of each page, in the Attachment tab:

You will be able to perform the following actions:

  • Edit the existing office attachments by clicking the Edit icon to the right of the attachment name.
  • Create new office files, with 3 types being available: documents, spreadsheets and presentations.
