Minimal XWiki version supportedXWiki 8.4

This macro connects XWiki to Office365, allowing to display and to search for office documents from OneDrive inside XWiki.


  • Only Office formats (Word, Excel, Powerpoint) can be embedded. PDF cannot because Office 365 does not provide an embed URL.
  • Sharepoint documents can be embedded by URL but not searched.

Macro embed via URL

First, you can embed an Office 365 document by URL. This way of embedding does not require OAuth credentials to connect XWiki. To embed you just need to get the URL that is displayed when you view or edit an Office document on Office 365. An iframe is used to embed. You can also set width and height parameters of the iframe.

{{office365 url="" width="100%" height="800" /}}


Macro embed via Search

You can embed via search. Just insert the office365 macro without any parameter and a search box will show up. You need to set OAuth credentials in the configuration for this to work (see configuration). You search and then choose the document to embed(two links, "change" and "view" are displayed for changing the embed document or viewing the document on Office365).

{{office365 /}}


OneDrive search inside XWiki

If you setup OAuth credentials, activate the search UI extension in the Office 365 configuration in the XWiki administration  and add the UI Extension point to the SolrSearchMacros page (see installation instructions) you will see a box showing up on the SOLR search screen of XWiki when searching. This box shows OneDrive results. 


To configure the extension to be able to use the other features, you will need to get OAuth2 credentials:

Create Office 365 OAuth Credentials

You will need to create credentials on Office 365/Azure AD. This can be done either in Azure AD or on this microsoft app registration web site. It might be necessary to be an admin in the organization

It is necessary to get an Application ID (clientid), create a password (secret)
and set the redirect URI ( http://[your domain]]/xwiki/bin/view/Office365/OAuth (or https) )


Permissions need to be set on the Graph API like below:


Here are some screenshots of the checkboxes checked on the Application Registration Portal:

In case you register the key using the Azure Portal here is how the rights should look:


Enter the credentials in XWiki Administration

You will need to enter your credentials and your tenant ID (either or the full ID) in the Office365 section of the XWiki Administration.

Add the UI Extension point to the Main.SolrSearchMacro page

A UI Extension point needs to be added until XWIKI-14205 is integrated in XWiki.

To add the extension point locate #\displaySearchForm in the page Main.SolrSearchMacros and add the foreach/end block after it:

    #foreach ($extension in $services.uix.getExtensions(""))
{{html clean=false}}
$services.rendering.render($extension.execute(), 'xhtml/1.0')
    #if ($text != '')
This section is currently empty.
