Companion is installed and running but still being prompted to download companion when trying to edit a document. I am accessing confluence on Chrome.
Welcome to the Atlassian Community! I hope you're doing well.
I could replicate the behavior, although my Companion app is currently installed.
However, that only happens when it is closed and not running on the background.
With that in mind, just to double confirm, would you be able to open it manually and try editing the file again?
Just asking this, as often I forget to open the Companion app the download message pop ups, even though it is installed on my machine.
If it is already running when you try to edit the file though, please let me know! It would be useful to know your OS as well. :)
Hi @Chantelle Botha ,
Could you please check if there are any errors in the Companion log file? The log file can be accessed by clicking the tray icon and selecting "View Logs". See also this KB article describing how to access the log file.
Given that Companion is running but is not connecting, it might be silently failing with an error that will only be visible in the logs. Please look for any log messages that are prepended with "error: ".
In particular, if Companion is failing at the point that you describe, this could indicate an authentication issue. In that case you would see an error in the logs such as:
error: adc:websocket:auth YYYY-MM-DDTHH:MM:SS.SSSZ Authentication failed!
