Nextcloud Plugin

The Nextcloud plugin is a suite of client-server software for creating and using file hosting services.

Plugins Catalog

  • You must have a data pool available for plugin storage.
  • You must connect the system to the internet. Go to Network > Interfaces, edit the intended plugin interface, and set Disable Hardware Offloading.

To see the plugin catalog, go to the Plugins screen.

Going to the Jails or Plugins screen for the first time prompts you to select a location on the system for storing Jail related data.

JailsPluginsStorage

By default, this location stores all data related to jails and plugins, including downloaded applications, data managed by the jail or plugin, and any jail snapshots.

  • Disconnecting or deleting the pool that stores jail data can result in permanent data loss!
  • Make sure you back up any critical data or snapshots that are stored in a jail before changing the storage configuration.

To change the Jails and Plugins storage location, click , select a new pool, and click CHOOSE.

PluginsList

If the catalog doesn’t load:

  • Go to Network > Global Configuration and confirm the Default Gateway and DNS Servers addresses are correct.
  • Open the Shell and ping an Internet address. The output confirms the system is connected to the Internet.

TrueNAS organizes plugins into two Collections:

  • iXsystems maintained plugins
  • Open source plugins created and maintained by TrueNAS users.

By default, TrueNAS shows the iXsystems-supported plugins. To see the community plugins, open Browse a Collection and select Community.
