Timeout (?) calling ClientSidePage.AvailableClientSideComponents when adding webparts

I'm trying to create a Modern Experience page from a Provider Hosted app in C# and add webparts to it.

 

The ClientSidePage is created ok and i can add sections to it with ClientSidePage.AddSection(CanvasSectionTemplate.OneColumn, s.Section.Order)

 

The problem arises when i try to add webparts to the page. Nothing happens when i call ClientSidePage.AvailableClientSideComponents(). The same problem arises when calling ClientSidePage.InstantiateDefaultWebPart(DefaultClientSideWebParts.Events)

 

I get no error, the code just does not execute. After a while the code seems to timeout, still without an exception. I can navigate to the page and edit it. Now i see my sections but no webparts ofcourse.

 

Sometimes, maybe 1 out of 10 times, the code works and the webparts are added to the page.

Hi,

 

Please verify if the DenyAddAndCustomizePages is set to false or 0

Set-SPOSite -Identity https://<yourdomain>.sharepoint.com -DenyAddAndCustomizePages $false

Hi

 

The DenyAddAndCustomizePages is set to Disabled.

 

I ditched the built in AvailableClientSideComponents function and wrote my own using the /_api/web/GetClientSideWebParts API instead and now it's working as expected.
