Getting Access to the New LibreOffice Documentation Cloud Service

    From The Document Foundation Wiki

    Getting a login in The Document Foundation Nextcloud service

    If you are new to the LibreOffice community and want to collaborate in our documentation effort, please introduce yourself in the documentation forum and tell us why you want to contribute as well as your skills in LibreOffice.

    Step one

    Getting your Single Sign ON (SSO)

    To access the TDF infrastructure services such as the documentation forum and Nextcloud file repository, you must get a username (your SSO username) from our authentication services.

    1. Visit with your browser.
    2. Click the link Create new account.
      Create new account link
    3. Fill the data as indicated, type the captcha number and click Submit.
      User data
    4. Check your inbox for the confirmation e-mail. Click on the link indicated to validate the login.

    Step two

    Now you can introduce yourself in the documentation forum. If you are joining a documentation translation team, refer to your local documentation team. For the English documentation team:


    The DOCUMENTATION FORUM is divided into 3 categories.

    • GENERAL: This forum was created to hold all discussions related to the LibreOffice Documentation team work, not specifically related to the other 2 categories (LibreOffice Guide and LibreOffice Help). If you are new to the documentation job, use this forum.
    • LIBREOFFICE GUIDES: This forum is for discussions on writing, editing and producing LibreOffice Guides.
    • LIBREOFFICE HELP: This forum is for discussion about the Help of LibreOffice.

    Step three

    Contact documentation at libreoffice dot org to inform your username and to proceed with getting access to the LibreOffice Documentation folders in Nextcloud.

    Note: For the moment, the access of the source documents in Nextcloud is granted on a case by case basis.

    Step Four

    Once the access is granted to the LibreOffice Documentation folders in Nextcloud, you will see it in your root directory of the Files app.
