Hi @Baig Mirja_ Sattar ,

Could you please provide some more details? What browser and OS are you using? 

Companion is currently not supported on IE, Safari & Edge - see the following KB article:

This will be resolved in Confluence 7.3. 

I would recommend raising a Confluence support case and providing Companion logs so that the issue can be thoroughly investigated. See

@Baig Mirja_ Sattar 

Which point does the UI in Confluence get to before the process fails? Are you able to see "Edit with Powerpoint" dropdown from the "Edit with" button?

Hi @Baig Mirja_ Sattar ,

This issue indicates that Companion is not able to reach your Confluence Server. First, could I check which version of Confluence you are running? Second, is your Confluence instance set up with SSO? 


We are having the same issue as reported above. Has this been resolved?

@Parul Trivedi 

Which browser are you using? I would highly recommend upgrading to Confluence 7.3+ as the file editing experience with Companion is significantly improved and does not have this bug. 

As I mentioned above, this could be an authentication issue where Companion cannot connect to Confluence. This is often due to a transparent SSO (with reverse proxy) in front of the Confluence instance. Is your Confluence setup similar to this?

Hi @Alex K ,

Thanks for replying to me. I was trying this on Chrome. 


Yes. I read somewhere that we need to upgrade.

Hi @Parul Trivedi ,

Chrome is still supported in older versions. If you're having the same error as Baig, then it indicates that Companion cannot reach your Confluence Server. 

Do you know if your environment is similar to as I described above? Do you have an SSO with your Confluence instance? 

We have a section in our documentation for how to resolve that problem on Confluence 7.3+
