Strapi ONLYOFFICE integration plugin

This app enables users to edit office documents from Strapi using ONLYOFFICE Docs packaged as Document Server - Community or Enterprise Edition.


The app allows to:

  • View and edit text documents, spreadsheets, and presentations.
  • Co-edit documents in real-time using two co-editing modes (Fast and Strict), Track Changes, comments, built-in chat.

Installing ONLYOFFICE Docs

You will need an instance of ONLYOFFICE Docs (Document Server). You can install free Community version or scalable Enterprise Edition.

To install free Community version, use Docker (recommended) or follow these instructions for Debian, Ubuntu, or derivatives.

To install Enterprise Edition, follow the instructions here.

Community Edition vs Enterprise Edition comparison can be found here.

Installing Strapi ONLYOFFICE integration plugin

  1. You need to change the Strapi middlewares file: strapi/config/middlewares.js.

    To allow inserting a frame with the editor and loading api.js, replace the strapi::security line in this file with the following:

      name: "strapi::security",
      config: {
        contentSecurityPolicy: {
          useDefaults: true,
          directives: {
            "script-src": ["'self'", "https:", "http:"],
            "frame-src": ["'self'", "https:", "http:"],

    If such a config already exists, you just need to add directives.

  2. Install the plugin in your Strapi project:

    npm install onlyoffice-strapi --save
  3. After successful installation you have to rebuild the admin UI so it'll include this plugin. To rebuild and restart Strapi run:

    # using yarn
    yarn build
    yarn develop
    # using npm
    npm run build
    npm run develop
