Okay, I had exactly this issue – that my SharePoint App supporting my Remote Event Receivers would work when run under an F5 – debug deploy, but not when published properly. Annoyingly, I’ve found that I have to make a number of changes when moving between a ‘proper’ build, and an F5-deploy; I’ve mentioned those before, but they were turning off the AppUninstalling event, and replacing the ClientId in the app manifest with a *.
However, I’d checked these things, and my code still didn’t work. Continue reading “My Remote Event Receiver works in Debug, but not when published”
As I’ve described recently, I’m working on a Provider-Hosted SharePoint App that’s hosted in Azure. I’ve said previously about using Remote Event Receivers, and this whole app is really about sending emails from SharePoint Online (which we’re doing via SendGrid).
One of the things the customer wants is ‘timed’ emails – that is, some sort of service that talks to SharePoint Online, checks to see if there are any items in a list that are due for action, and if so sends an alert email. Simple enough, but with one minor problem. There are no timer jobs in SharePoint Apps. And you can’t put them into Office 365. And Azure doesn’t have an equivalent … yet.

When trying to do an F5-Deploy of a Provider hosted app from Visual Studio, I got this error during the deployment:
Error occurred in deployment step ‘Uninstall app for SharePoint’: Your app handles the uninstalling app event. Ensure that the Windows Azure Cloud Web Service project is deployed to the emulator prior to uninstalling the app.
This happened just after the step “Uninstall app for SharePoint” in the process. Continue reading “App Deployment Error: "Your app handles the uninstalling app event"”
When you’re developing apps sometimes you’ll have errors occur. How do you get any kind of log entry about that?
Well, it turns out help is at hand – there is a PowerShell command Get-SPOAppErrors. This gets you the app errors for a particular App ID. For example:
Connect-SPOService -Url https://example-admin.sharepoint.com
Get-SPOAppErrors -ProductId DEADBEEF-CAFE-BABE-FACE-BEADEDFACADE | Select-Object -first 5 | fl
This will get the first 5 entries for the app with the given GUID and output their details on the PowerShell command window.
Recently I’ve been working with a provider hosted SharePoint App. The objective of the app is to register a remote event receiver on a library in the host web, and then handle events from it. There’s a good article about this on CodeProject, and as usual, Chris O’Brien has been there and blogged about this too.
Anyway, working on my app I had a number of problems around deploying it, both for debug and ‘live’, in particular around the AppManifest.xml file. Continue reading “Debug and Publish modes when deploying SharePoint Apps”
