Installable with the Extension Manager


Integrate Nextcloud with XWiki. Allows a Nextcloud instance to search content in XWiki as a logged in user.

This extension allows accessing XWiki from Nextcloud as a connected user using the XWiki application for Nextcloud.


Prerequisites & Installation Instructions

We recommend using the Extension Manager to install this extension (Make sure that the text "Installable with the Extension Manager" is displayed at the top right location on this page to know if this extension can be installed with the Extension Manager). Note that installing Extensions when being offline is currently not supported and you'd need to use some complex manual method.

You can also use the following manual method, which is useful if this extension cannot be installed with the Extension Manager or if you're using an old version of XWiki that doesn't have the Extension Manager:

  1. Log in the wiki with a user having Administration rights
  2. Go to the Administration page and select the Import category
  3. Follow the on-screen instructions to upload the downloaded XAR
  4. Click on the uploaded XAR and follow the instructions
  5. You'll also need to install all dependent Extensions that are not already installed in your wiki

Setting up the OpenID Connect Authentificator

After installing the extension, for XWiki to allow access from Nexctloud as a connected user, the following setting needs to be set in xwiki.cfg:


Note: You need to restart XWiki for this setting to be taken in account, after installing the Nextcloud application.

This authentication class is provided by the OpenID Connect Provider extension which should be installed as a dependency when installing the Nextcloud application. This class will look for Authentication HTTP headers and authenticate users using it through OpenID-Connect if it is present.


Dependencies for this extension (org.xwiki.contrib.nextcloud:application-nextcloud-ui 1.3):

  • org.xwiki.contrib.nextcloud:application-nextcloud-api 1.3
