Initial Setup

For the initial setup find the "Settings" button in the "ownCloud" tab. This will open the Connection Wizard

Connection Wizard

Enter the address to your owncloud server. Make sure to put the whole url to the "login" page (except the login or index.php bit).

  • User Proxy: Check this if you have a proxy to reach the internet. You will have to configure this at a later stage
  • Trust Invalid SSL Certificate: If you run your owncloud using a self signed certificate, make sure this is checked


Make sure to select the right authentication method for your ownCloud server:

  • Username/Password: default authentication using your owncloud username/password
  • Windows authentication: Single sign on using your windows Account (Enterprise only)
  • OAuth authentication: If OAuth is enabled on your ownCloud (this will open a oAuth Login window)
  • Password with cookie: Same as Username/Password, but use the classical login flow

You can use compatibility mode if you have problems using login because. This adds some workarounds for older or non-standard ownCloud installations.
