  • This occurs due to the public key which connects to the WOPI application such as Office Web Apps Server to the SharePoint farm goes out of sync! To resolve the issue, Run from any SharePoint Server:  

    Get-SPWOPIZone
    
    Update-SPWOPIProofKey

    Thanks & Regards,

  • Hi Leili,

    This occurs due to the public key which connects to the WOPI application such as Office Web Apps Server to the SharePoint farm goes out of sync.

    Run PowerShell above provided by Sharath and do IISRESET to compare the result.

    If the issue still exists, please check Event logs to find any clues.
