I am trying to learn SharePoint Framework Extensions and this is my first try. I created an application customer following the example in pluralsight. When I try to add the app, I get the error: Sorry, somethin went wrong with adding the app.

I can't seem to get other information from UI. Could someone help me figure out how to troubleshoot this error? How can I view the logs using Get-SPOTenantLogEntry as at this moment I get nothing back?

    why dont you debug using local workbench if in visual studios code? if you have it running on visual studios just debug as normal docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/dev/spfx/debug-in-vscode in any case you need to provide more info. Bit hard to pinpoint what is going on with your code with no code or atleast what video your referring to ;)

  • When was the app deployed to app catalog ? Is your issue related to this : github.com/SharePoint/sp-dev-docs/issues/… ? Commented Feb 9, 2018 at 9:31
  • @Ali Jafe, because it cannot be debugged using a workbench. Commented Feb 9, 2018 at 10:04
  • the app is deployed to app catalog. No, I don't think it is related to the one you posted. Commented Feb 9, 2018 at 14:26
  • Are you doing any feature framework provisioning? (element.xml) If so, there may be a conflict with the site. Providing details about what you're doing in the provisioning along with the version of the framework you are working with (latest is 1.4) would really help, thanks! Commented Feb 9, 2018 at 14:52

I think I am trying the exact same pluralsight course and was having the same issue. I got mine working now and in my case it was just a typo in the elements.xml file when defining ClientSideComponentProperties. this may not be your issue but here is what it should look like.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<Elements xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/sharepoint/">
        ClientSideComponentProperties="{&quot;Top&quot;:&quot;The top&quot;,&quot;Bottom&quot;:&quot;The bottom&quot;}">
