Go to the Nextcloud server apps/ directory (or some other directory used):
Get the Nextcloud ScienceMesh integration app.
You can download the latest version from the application release page on GitHub. Note that you need at least version 1.1.0 of the application.
wget https://github.com/sciencemesh/nc-sciencemesh/archive/v1.1.0.tar.gz tar -xzf v1.1.0.tar.gz mv nc-sciencemesh sciencemesh chown -R www-data:www-data sciencemesh
In Nextcloud open the
~/settings/apps/disabled page with Not enabled apps by an administrator and click

You need to put the xcloud_instance variable to the url of the Nextcloud instance.
Note: if your IOP is running on localhost, you need to add the following configuraton parameter to your nextcloud instance to allow Nextcloud to create requests to localhost
'allow_local_remote_servers' => true
Run the IOP with the configuration file:
revad -c metrics.toml
Once the IOP and the ScienceMesh are correctly configured, you can access the following metrics endpoint:
