"Office Importer Application" and the "Glossary Application" do not work together

Hi you all,
I have both of the mentioned applications installed and I have the following problem: after I create a new page in my wiki and click “save” the glossary application goes ahead and scans the page for terms it can convert into glossary items. The glossary app does this just fine normally, as I’ve told it to do exactly that in the settings.
However whenever I create a page using the “page from office” function the glossary application does not convert any of the terms into glossary items. I’ve tried a lot of times. The only way for me to get it to work currently is to import my office document, make all the changes I want to make in xwiki then create a new page without using the “office import” function and copy all of the content from my office imported page over to the new one. The glossary application works fine again in this new, copied page but it is a lot of additional work for me.
I’ve re-installed both applications but the combination just doesn’t work for me. Does anyone have the same problem and/or know how to fix it?


Hi, there are several ways to configure the Glossary app, see https://extensions.xwiki.org/xwiki/bin/view/Extension/Glossary/GlossaryApplication/#HConfiguration

Which one are you using?

If you’re using the “update on save” method, then it would mean that for some reason the office importer app doesn’t send the right event (namely DocumentUpdatingEvent which is expected by the Glossary app) when creating the pages and would be a bug. Please confirm that you use this method first and then we’ll need someone to reproduce.


Hi and thank you so much for your answer!

I am using the “Update on save” mode. I would really apprechiate if someone could check if th have the same problem.
