I have WebApp at URL http://AUrl/

I have deployed solution with single file in _layout. And then removed that solution and installed upgrade with new web part in it.

I can see in Central administration that my solution is deployed to http://AUrl/

I can not see that web part on http://AUrl/site/SomeSiteHere.

Any ideas?

PS I do not have any actual content under http://AUrl/ accessible via web browser.

Edit: Above feature was scoped as Web App. I have tried a bit different approach where feature is scoped as Site. Still no luck! Central admin see it, http://AUrl/site/SomeSiteHere do not.

Update: When I have set site url, for second solution (scoped at site!), VS was able to deploy it successfully.

So the question now is:

How do You deploy solution to web app, when there is no site collection set for web app url? Like http://AUrl/ is web app url only, and site collection is set at http://AUrl/sites/SiteA.

  • You need to activate the Feature at site collection level from site settings... – Waqas Sarwar MVP Dec 5 '14 at 14:19
  • I would if I could find it on the list of features. – przemo_li Dec 5 '14 at 15:36

    is your feature is hidden? check from both Site collection feature or Manage Site Feature? or run the get-spfeature command to see if it is their technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff607945(v=office.15).aspx – Waqas Sarwar MVP Dec 5 '14 at 16:03
  • get-spfeature return both features (see edit for second one I have missing), I can even use enable-spfeature -URL http://AUrl/sites/B, without any errors. Though files that should load on each page (some JS) are not loading. – przemo_li Dec 5 '14 at 16:18
  • what central admin daying, solution is deployed? – Waqas Sarwar MVP Dec 5 '14 at 16:21

On http://AUrl/, go to Site Settings > Site Collection Features and ensure that your web part is activated

  • Its not functional url :| I have 2 different site collections under /sites/A and /sites/B. On http://AUrl/ I get 200 OK HTTP request printed in web browser. – przemo_li Dec 5 '14 at 15:28
  • Is it visible/activated at the top of those site collections? – Stuart C Dec 5 '14 at 15:30
  • No. Features do not show it. Also Central admin do not show that feature. Solution is ivisble and deployed. Features are not. – przemo_li Dec 5 '14 at 15:32

1) My Web App URL is not used by any site collection! 2) Web Parts that are scopped at site, should use site collections url.

There is great post about enabling feautres that are not visible in web admin section here: Deployed solution does not appear in site collection features.

With that I was able to deploy Site scopped solution, and get Feature working.
