Authentication postman

Having a tough time understanding the steps for authenticating by REST so I can create documents in my CE onprem server. Does anyone have some postman profiles willing to share so I can use as a guide?

Hello @michaelT

If you mean Web Document Builder API and you are having troubles with using it, then the easiest way to pass JWT authentication is:

  • In Authorization tab select JWT Bearer;
  • in the Secret field paste your secret (find it in local.json);

Config is located in:
Windows - C:\%ProgramFiles%\ONLYOFFICE\DocumentServer\config;
Linux - /etc/onlyoffice/documentserver/ (same path in Docker container).

  • in the Payload paste body of the request (example is here).

Once the request is sent, processed and response received - you will find a link to the file.
If you would like to download the file from the browser, then please check this beforehand:
