i just wanted to share our experience with the "Edit in Office" feature.
We use a Citrix Environment to provide Access to external partners or for employees doing homeoffice. Regarding the recent vulnerabilities in confluence we were forced to upgrade to 6.15.2, wich brings the new "Edit in Office" feature with Atlassian Companion.
The Atlassian Companion app is not compatible with multi-sessionn Environments like Citrix, so we had to improvise:
We replaced the "Office-Connector-9.0.0.jar" with the "Office-Connector-6.0.0.jar" from Confluence 6.10. This brings back the old funktionality but breaks the file-preview.
So we had to replace the confluence-previews-8.1.2.jar with the confluence-previews-6.1.2.jar in the atlassian-bundled-plugins.
This actually works pretty well for us with Confluence 6.15.2. The filenames can vary in other versions of Confluence.
(The Plugins Cache has to be deleted after modification!)
Here some steps to repoduce on Linux:
tar xfvz atlassian-confluence-6.10.2.tar.gz
chown -R %username%:%groupname% atlassian-confluence-6.10.2
cp ./atlassian-confluence-6.10.2/confluence/WEB-INF/atlassian-bundled-plugins/OfficeConnector-6.0.0.jar .
mv OfficeConnector-9.0.0.jar /home/%username%/
cp /home/%username%/OfficeConnector-6.0.0.jar .
chown confluence:confluence OfficeConnector-6.0.0.jar
chmod o-rwx OfficeConnector-6.0.0.jar
mv confluence-previews-8.1.2.jar /home/%username%/
cp /home/%username%/confluence-previews-6.1.2.jar .
chown confluence:confluence confluence-previews-6.1.2.jar
chmod o-rwx confluence-previews-6.1.2.jar
rm -rf ./bundled-plugins/*

It’s been great to hear from fellow users over the last few weeks about the best tips and fun moments you’ve had working on Confluence since the transition to working remote. I’d love to keep the c...
