504 error on office.js RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have an application in the Office Store and one of our user is not able to run it. When I debugged the traffic using Fiddler I notice that they were getting a 504 error on .

    I had the user test our application using a local manifest file that ran against a demo version of our app that references the local office.js file (../Scripts/Office/1.0/office.js). This version ran without issue.

    The user also seems to be experiencing issues with other Office Apps.

    Other user have not experienced this issue (that I am aware of).

    Is there any known causes of this issue.

  • If you want to debug with the JS code, I suggest you to use "". Test off line is not a good practice.


    If you do need a local test, you need to download all related js files, such as:


    ../Scripts/Office/1.0/Excel-15.js   (outlook-15..etc..)


    ../Scripts/Office/<any other JS files>

    Then you need to find the cached manifest in local folder. Usually it is under a folder "manifest". The path is like this: "c:\Users\<userName>\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Office\15.0\Wef\{530FFB0D-DD41-47FC-AD50-6527F8B9E208}\QElGh0Uxig0wDaYqn0rAzQ==\manifest". It may be a little bit different on your machine, but basically it is similar. Just find it out.

    1. in the manifest folder, there will be several files, each file represents a cached manifest of one agave app.

    2. check the "DisplayName" for every file and make sure this is your test app, like below:

    <DisplayName DefaultValue="Your app name"/>

    3. In the manifest file, find the "SourceLocation" label and change it to a local one.

        <SourceLocation DefaultValue="https://your_app_html_address">

    change it to:

        <SourceLocation DefaultValue="file:\\\your_local_app_html_file_path">

    4. Change every relative path to absolute path and point to the downloaded JS files, the original file may look like this:

        <link href="../content/office.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css">

        <link href="../scripts/office/1.0/MicrosoftAjex.js"></script>    ....

    5. Restart Excel/Outlook/...   and insert your app again.
