I am able to install/deploy an app to a sharepoint site using the code below

var appManager = new AppManager(context);
var apps = appManager.GetAvailable();
var foundApp = apps.Where(a => a.Id == FeatureId).FirstOrDefault();
var installAppAsync = await appManager.InstallAsync(foundApp);

However, one particular app needs to be tied to a specific document library when added to a site, how can I specify these parameters when installing the app?

If you're developing a custom command set for a list, after installing the SPFx package to the app catalog, you need to attach your command set to the target list with the code:

var list = clientContext.Web.Lists.GetById(listId);
var customActions = list.UserCustomActions;

var customAction = customActions.Add();
customAction.ClientSideComponentId = new Guid("Id of your command set");
customAction.Location = "ClientSideExtension.ListViewCommandSet.CommandBar";

Please, note that your package must be either tenant-wide scoped or deployed to the app catalog of the target site collection.

  • There is a mixture of Apps that I need to add, some are ProviderHostedEventReceivers, others are commands like your example. Its the EventReceivers and the like that I need to add to the site.

  • You cannot attach event receivers with an app, you can do that programmatically only: sharepointnutsandbolts.com/2014/01/… Oct 9, 2019 at 7:39
