ONLYOFFICE Connector for Liferay
ONLYOFFICE Connector for Liferay allows users to edit and co-author Office documents inside Liferay.
Currently, the following document formats can be opened and edited with this plugin: DOCX, XLSX, PPTX. The following formats are available for view only: ODT, ODS, ODP, DOC, XLS, PPT.
The plugin will create a new ’ONLYOFFICE Edit/View’ menu option within the ’Documents and Media’ section for Office documents.
This allows multiple users to collaborate on docs in real time and save the changes back to Liferay.
Configuration page in the System Settings > Connectors section allows managing server addresses and JWT Secret that protects documents from unauthorized access.
2. Installing ONLYOFFICE Document Server
ONLYOFFICE Connector for Liferay requires an instance of ONLYOFFICE Document Server that is resolvable and connectable both from Liferay and any end clients. If that is not the case, use the official ONLYOFFICE Document Server documentation page: https://helpcenter.onlyoffice.com/server/linux/document/linux-installation.aspx. ONLYOFFICE Document Server must also be able to POST to Liferay directly.
The easiest way to start an instance of ONLYOFFICE Document Server is to use Docker: https://github.com/onlyoffice/Docker-DocumentServer
