Nextcloud Storage Provider Setup

The Nextcloud Storage Provider can be used to allow users to map in their Nextcloud files into their container-based Kasm Session. Access is provided via Nextcloud’s WebDAV interface via the Rclone Docker volume plugin.

Reference Docs:

The storage provider configuration is as follows:



Storage Provider Type




Webdav URL


Default Target


Volume Config

     "driver" : "rclone",
     "driver_opts" : {
         "type" : "webdav",
         "webdav-vendor" : "nextcloud",
         "uid" : "1000",
         "gid" : "1000",
         "allow_other" : "true"

Mount Config



Many of the storage provider examples include default storage driver options used by rclone. These have been observed to work well with Kasm in its default configuration, but may be adjusted by adminstrators as needed. Please note, the available options often vary based on provider plugin (e.g Gdrive vs OneDrive)

The Rclone Docker Plugin is installed by default as part the standard Workspace install.
