Remote event receiver install via PNP problem

Not applicable

Hi All,


since last week we have a issue with Remote event receivers installed using PNP. If i debug all works fine. 

What do we do?

We install a app on tenant level and install the app in the sites where we want to use them using PNP.


Tried a few things already 

install higher version on tenant level. no result

reprovision using PNP no result.


it seems i can not add a eventreceiver if the app is not running in de the local Site/Web.

Anybody else having the same issue?


Hope somebody has the solution.

How do you install the app in the sites? Using side-loading? Can you share your app manifest?

Hi Bert,


i just checked it is not in the manifest but in a provisioning classs the code looks like this:

   AuthenticationManager authenticationManager = new AuthenticationManager();
            using (ClientContext workPackageContext = authenticationManager.GetSharePointOnlineAuthenticatedContextTenant($"{Info.ProjectUrl}/{workPackage.Url}", Info.UserName, Info.UserPassWord.ToSecureString()))
                Guid sideloadingFeature = new Guid("AE3A1339-61F5-4f8f-81A7-ABD2DA956A7D");

                string path =  Path.GetFullPath("Resources/App/");
                Site site = workPackageContext.Site;
                Web web = workPackageContext.Web;
                    // Make sure we have side loading enabled. 
                    // Using PnP Nuget package extensions.
                        // Load .app file and install that to site
                        var appstream = System.IO.File.OpenRead(path);
                        AppInstance app = web.LoadAndInstallApp(appstream);
                    catch (Exception exp)
                        TraceHelper.WriteErrorToListener("AddAppToSite Adding", exp.Message);
                    // Disable side loading feature using 
                    // PnP Nuget package extensions. 
                catch (Exception ex)

                    TraceHelper.WriteErrorToListener("AddAppToSite", ex.Message);

But it states in the error that the app is already installed.


The app is installed on tenant level  just to set the permisions. that i do not have to check the trust everytime. But since it is on tenant nivo i still need to install it in order to get it to work in the site...


I think that is why my event receiver does not register to a list as it is pushed from tenant level and not from a site level.


Hope you understand what i mean.


Any help is welcome.





Found out that if i do the following:
Add the solution to the tenant v and next provision using same code but a app with v1.0.0.5 in it. It works but it feels strange that you need to update the versionumber to get it to work.

Any other thoughts?
