The OnlyOffice Connector Application allows you to create and edit docx, xlsx, pptx attachments using an OnlyOffice server. You can also upload doc, xls and ppt attachments, but in order to edit them you will need to convert them to docx, xlsx, pptx after clicking the Edit icon.

Several users can edit the same document in real-time.

By default, the extension is already configured to use the XWiki OnlyOffice testing server, so you can test it out easily.

Please note the app is compatible with OnlyOffice document server 6.x.


Once the extension is active, you will see some new options 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.







You can read more about configuring the app in the "Documentation" tab.
If you're planning on using our app with the Only Office Integration Edition, please contact us and we'll be happy to extend our partner discount to you.

Standard configuration for the OnlyOffice server is supported. Support is not included for custom access configuration rules for XWiki and/or OnlyOffice servers (e.g.behind a firewall, reverse proxy). If you need support for a custom setup please contact us.

Extensions can also be installed only on a particular subwiki by global admins. Subwiki admins will not be able to install these extensions due to their limited rights.

OnlyOffice Server

First of all you will need an OnlyOffice document server and the current recommended version is 6.x. You can use the default one provided by XWiki SAS, or set up your own.

If you use the test OnlyOffice server, please be aware that it should be used for testing only and that XWiki SAS doesn't provide any warranties regarding this server. The pricing of this application doesn't include a production-ready OnlyOffice server and users are expected to install their own server. Please make a reasonable usage of this default server and XWiki SAS reserves the right to prevent access to it in case of abuse.

You can find how to install a server in the OnlyOffice Help Center.

In order to use this connector, the OnlyOffice server must be setup using CORS (cross-origin-resource-sharing). You can enable this by putting a proxy in front of OnlyOffice or you can change the OnlyOffice nginx configuration file /etc/nginx/includes/onlyoffice-documentserver-docservice.conf using this content.


The price is per year and varies depending on the support level and the number of users.
