With SPFx 1.7 preview release, I know we can access Teams Context information in SharePoint Framework web part but not from SharePoint Framework extensions. I looked at ApplicationCustomizerContext class but didn't find any reference. Wondering if Teams context information is available in SharePoint Framework extensions?

Interestingly I found the way to get Teams Context information in SPFx extension. Follow the below steps to do it:

  1. Do "npm install @microsoft/teams-js --save" in your SPFx extension project.

  2. In your .ts file or if you using React, then inside your target component, import microsoftTeams names as 'Import * as microsoftTeams from '@microsoft/teams-js'.

  3. In your code, use below code:

        try {
            microsoftTeams.getContext(tContext => {
                console.log('Inside Teams:'+tContext.teamName);
                this.setState({ ShowBanner: false });
        } catch (error) {
            console.error("Exception while getting Teams context:" + error);
  • Amazing, thanks for this :D
