How to edit documents from ownCloud in ONLYOFFICE

You have a ownCloud account and want to edit your documents using ONLYOFFICE? Follow this step-by-step guide to find out how to edit documents stored in your ownCloud from the Documents portal module.

Connect your ownCloud account to ONLYOFFICE

  1. In the left sidebar of the Documents, just below the text Connect, click on the ownCloud icon.
  2. Specify the connection URL, your user name, and password and click Save to connect your ownCloud account.
    For example, the URL that allows to access your ownCloud files via WebDAV looks like this: This URL address can be found in the following way: sign in to your ownCloud account, click the Settings icon in the lower left corner and copy the entire URL from the WebDAV field. Then switch to the ONLYOFFICE Documents module and paste the entire copied URL address, including the protocol, into the Connection URL field.
    Your ownCloud documents will be shown in ONLYOFFICE documents as a folder.
  3. Change the folder‘s name if necessary.
  4. If you want the ownCloud documents to be visible for anyone, click on the Make shared checkbox and put into the Common Documents folder. If not checked, your ownCloud account will only be visible to you.
    This step is not available while working in ONLYOFFICE Personal.
  5. Click Save.

Edit your ownCloud documents

  1. Locate the ownCloud folder and open it.
  2. Browse to the file you want to edit and click it.
    If necessary, a dialog will tell you that the document will be converted to the OpenOffice XML format for faster viewing and editing.
    You can choose to keep the original file as well, by checking the Save the file copy in the original format as well box.
  3. Click Convert.
  4. Click Open when the message appears that your document is successfully converted.

Now you can edit your document (if editable). After editing, you can simply close the document and the changes will be saved.
