WopiOpenAction decides whether the action is available based on the permissions of the current user and the extension of the file. In case of doc (not docx) files this is not enough, because they can be viewed but not edited.

The action should take the type of the action (view or edit) into account when determining the availability of the action.

There is another scenario with PDF files. If you upload a PDF, the WopiOpenEdit and WopiOpenView will be available, and

  • when I try to open the file, the edit mode, GetWopiData fails (so this the scenario is similar)
  • when I try to open for read, I got the token from GetWopiData, but the Office Online displays the following error message:

Is there a way to discover the capabilities of the Office Online server and allow WopiOpenEdit and WopiOpenView based on that?
