How to configure the connector

To adjust the app settings within your Odoo, go to Home menu -> Settings -> ONLYOFFICE.

  • Document Server URL: Specify the URL of the installed ONLYOFFICE Docs or the address of ONLYOFFICE Docs Cloud.
  • Document Server JWT Secret: JWT is enabled by default and the secret key is generated automatically to control document access on the back-end. You can specify your own secret key in this field. In this case, you also need to specify the same secret key in the ONLYOFFICE Docs config file to enable the validation.
  • Document Server JWT Header: Standard JWT header used in ONLYOFFICE is Authorization. In case this header is in conflict with your setup, you can change the header to the custom one.
