Hi @Topoban Kaushik welcome to the Atlassian community forum.

"Failed to compile error" is something that needs some good amount of troubleshooting and investigation. 

At the moment, I'm able to pick up these articles and not sure if this really helps you:

https://confluence.atlassian.com/doc/administering-the-atlassian-companion-app-958456281.html

https://confluence.atlassian.com/doc/edit-files-170494553.html

Either the confluence admin or the internal technical team might be the best resources to fix the issue.

Please stay safe and stay healthy.
