In order to use SPFx, it mentions that "SharePoint 2016 Feature Pack 2" is required.

I have SharePoint 2016 On Premise. But how to find out what version and feature pack is currently installed.

I dont have access to the Server, is there a way to find this information from Client Side or as Site Collection Admin/Full Control access?

Also, how to know the SPFx and its required components are already installed and available?

SharePoint 2016 with feature pack 2 supports v1.1.0 of the SharePoint Framework.

Ref: SharePoint Framework development with SharePoint 2016 Feature Pack 2

I don't know of a way to determine which feature pack is installed without access to the server, ask your farm administrators.


Per Dylan Cristy's comment, you could check for the existence of _layouts/workbench.aspx. Should look something like this:

Workbench on SharePoint 2016


Updated the image to SharePoint 2016 with Feature Pack 2, not dramatically different.

  • Would the workbench.aspx page be present even if the server wasn't up to feature pack 2? Commented Feb 26, 2019 at 14:33
  • That makes sense. I was just rooting around for the release notes to see if I could come up with a better answer, but looking for workbench.aspx is a pretty easy solution.
