Good news, everyone!
We have released the integration app for Mattermost. From now, users can open, edit, and collaborate on documents within the chat. Read on to find out more details.
Mattermost is an open-source online collaboration service with private and group messaging, organized conversations in teams, channels, and file sharing. Designed for organizations and companies, it aims to bring all team communication in one place, improve productivity and ensure high security.
ONLYOFFICE connector for Mattermost allows opening, viewing, and editing text documents, spreadsheets, and presentations shared in chats. You can share your office documents with your colleagues providing read-only or edit permissions, collaborate on them using two co-editing modes, track changes, version history, comments, and built-in chat.
First, you need an instance of ONLYOFFICE Docs v6.4 or higher (Enterprise or Community Editions) and Mattermost v5.37.2 or higher.
To install the connector, follow these steps:
npm install --legacy-peer-deps
To configure the connector, go to System Console —> ONLYOFFICE —> Click Configure. Specify the required parameters: Document Editing Service address, Secret key, JWT Header, and JWT Prefix.
For more detailed instructions on installing and configuring the connector learn our API documentation.
To open the file in ONLYOFFICE online editors, go to the Context menu by clicking on the 3 dots or click the file name and choose the “Open in ONLYOFFICE” button.
By default, the message sender has edit permission, and all other chat members have read-only access to the file. Only the message sender can change it using the “Change access rights” button in the context menu.
To give access rights to a particular chat participant, enter his name in the search box and click “Add”. The username will appear in the list, where you can set the file access rights.
