Modern Document Libraries Broken in SharePoint Add-In in Office365

    Question

  • I have an existing SharePoint Add-In that is in the Office Store. When the Modern Libraries came out, the app is broke and user's can no longer access the Lists. The views break and the settings page breaks. SharePoint Re-Directs me to https://mysite/undefined/_layouts/15/AccessDenied.aspx . -- Notice the /undefined  which should be a reference to the web my app is living on.

    Before it re-directs me, it shows a couple other errors in the Developer Tools, but go away too fast before I can read them. So it is apparent the authentication mechanism in SharePoint Add-Ins is not working with new Modern Libraries (as it works with I go back to classic mode).

    Is there a plan to fix this by Microsoft? Is this a well known thing?

  • Hi Beau Cameron,

    Re-add the add-in from the office store to check if it can work.

    And consider using the classic mode in SharePoint online.

  • Hi Beau Cameron,

    As I understand, the new design for document library brings you inconvenience. Some customization and features cannot work in new design.

    There is a workaround. You could turn on the auto-detect.

    Go to Admin centers->SharePoint->Settings->SharePoint Lists and Libraries experience->New experience (auto-detect). The SharePoint will automatically detect when certain features are being used, and then automatically return to classic mode.

    For more detailed information, you could refer to the article below.

    Differences between the new document library experience and classic mode.

  • It is already on "Auto Detect". That is the issue. There aren't any features wouldn't be included. This is OUT OF THE BOX functionality. You cannot view lists in SharePoint Add-ins.

    You could consider switching to classic design in SharePoint online. Some features and customization cannot work in new design in SharePoint online.
