It used to work (providing that the URL did not require authentication). I
did not test it lately, because the whole 'file_path' concept is a bit
controversial. You can load any file to LibreOffice and serve it to
browser, that the local 'lool' user can read. I don't think it is desirable
in production environment. If you want WebDAV, it is not there yet.
Currently the most mature and most tested feature is WOPI, i.e. loolwsd
acts as a WOPI client, and can read/write files from WOPI hosts. You can
see this in action, if you request a demo at
Hopefully I can update the CODE VM with WOPI enabled packages, too.

Best regards,
