Troubleshooting WebSocket

⏱ 1.5 min read


WebSocket technology allows Wrike to get real-time workspace updates and enables collaborative editing of description fields. Future versions of Wrike will require this technology for certain features to work. To guarantee the best performance and compatibility, we recommend checking that WebSocket is working properly with Wrike on your device.

WebSocket requirements

Starting September 30, 2018, Wrike requires the use of WebSocket technology by your web browser or client. If WebSocket isn't working properly after that date then Wrike will continue to function, but the following features may not work:

  • Live editing of task, folder, or project descriptions.

  • Getting Inbox notifications (without refreshing the page).

  • Seeing various changes made by other users, e.g., adding or removing projects, folders, or tasks.

Check that WebSocket is working

  1. Open Wrike’s Support Tool.

  2. Under Access to Wrike Transport, if it says Success that means WebSocket is up and running. If you don't see Success, check our troubleshooting steps below.

Troubleshooting WebSocket

  1. Supported browsers. Confirm that you’re using a supported browser. If not, try using one of those and then check that WebSocket is working (see above).

  2. Proxy servers and firewalls. Check if you have a proxy server or firewall that blocks WebSocket access (you might need your system administrator’s help).

    1. Wrike requires WebSocket connections to * on port 443. You might need to add an exception to your firewall and/or have your proxy intercept WebSocket connections.

    2. Check that WebSocket is working.
