We updated ONLYOFFICE integration app for Nextcloud to version 8.2.0. It allows you to configure the JWT header, insert links between sheets, use the app in Basque, and more. Read this post to learn all the details.
JWT header setting
Standard JWT header used in ONLYOFFICE Docs is Authorization. In case this header is in conflict with your setup, you can change the header to the custom one and resolve the issue. Learn more about JWT
Where to find: Administration settings -> ONLYOFFICE -> Server settings -> Advanced server settings -> Authorization header
From now on, you are able to add links between several spreadsheets kept in your Nextcloud using copy-paste.
To do so, copy the required cell from one file. In another file, paste that cell and hit Paste link. Once done, if you change the cell value in the first file, it will automatically update in the second spreadsheet.
If necessary, you are then able to check the added external links using the corresponding option in the Data tab.
Background availability check
Sometimes a situation occurs when the editors don’t open or save documents after a period of proper functioning. The reason can be a problem in changing network settings or disabling any relevant services, or issues with the SSL certificate.
To solve this, we added an asynchronous background task which runs on the server to check availability of the editors. It allows testing the connection between your Nextcloud instance and ONLYOFFICE Docs, namely availability of server addresses and the validity of the JWT secret are being checked.
If any issue is detected, the ONLYOFFICE integration app, and consequently, the ability to create and open files, will be disabled. As a Nextcloud admin, you will get the corresponding notification.
This option allows you to avoid issues when the server settings become incorrect and require changes.
By default, this background task runs once a day. If necessary, you can change the frequency. To do so, open the Nextcloud config file /nextcloud/config/config.php. Insert the following section and enter the required value in minutes:
'onlyoffice' => array (‘
'editors_check_interval' => 3624
If you want to disable the background check, enter 0.
