Microsoft Office Online / WOPI Integration

About

The WOPI (Web Application Open Platform Interface) app, which is bundled with ownCloud Enterprise Edition, is the connector between ownCloud server and Microsoft Office Online Server.

It allows Microsoft Office Online users to collaboratively work with Office documents in ownCloud in the browser, by connecting ownCloud with your Microsoft Office Online Server via the WOPI protocol. To use it, you need to have a running Microsoft Office Online Server in your data center.

Please bear two things in mind:

  • WOPI is only available for ownCloud enterprise. It is not available in the community version.

  • Out-of-the box only the on-premise version of Microsoft Office Online Server is supported.

If you want to integrate the Office 365 (cloud) version of Microsoft Office Online, you need to get in touch with us.

Configuring the WOPI App in ownCloud

To configure the WOPI app in your ownCloud installation, add the following configuration to config/config.php, and adjust it based on the details of your setup:

'wopi.token.key' => 'replace-with-your-own-random-string',
'wopi.office-online.server' => 'https://your.office.online.server.tld',
