I try to create a provider hosted app (MVC) with VS2015.

I use the standard template-approach like described there: http://chakkaradeep.com/index.php/building-apps-for-sharepoint-with-mvc/ (Or many other places like msdn)

After that project is created, I receive an error that SharePointContextProvider and SharePointContextFilter can not be found. ("missing assembly reference")

I run VS as administrator and have already installed the "Windows Identity Foundation SDK", "SharePoint Client Components SDK" and the "Azure SDK"

Is there a nuget package or something like that I have to add to my project?

You need go add OfficeDev PnP Nuget package in your project. Depending on if you're developing for online or on-premise.

  • Thx. I cannot believe I did Google that issue for HOURS and did not find that solution.
