Contacts plugin unavailable

Contacts plugin unavailable

  

Hello Everyone,


I want to ask about contact plugin. Why my contacts plugin is unavailable? I use contact plugin from forge.


Thankyou 

Hi Ryan,

This is probably because you are not testing on an actual device? I'm not sure whether the plugins are supposed to work when using an emulator like NoxPlayer.

Please help me to solve this problem.

Thank You

I created a app that uses FindContact (SearchParameter="") to get all contacts, and it is working. Maybe a stupid question, but do you have a contact App on your device?

When using OutSystems Now retrieving contacts from my device goes just fine.

However, when using the Native Generated app I run into the same error as Ryan: "Contacts Plugin is unavailable".

Before calling FindContact I call CheckContactsPlugin.

Has anyone been able to resolve this?  

I just installed the Contacts plugin from the forge.  In my mobile app I added the dependency for it, and created a simple screen that has a button linked to an action to check the contacts plugin and display the result.  When I publish and run it on my Android phone (which has a contacts app), it is giving error 2, "Contacts Plugin is unavailable".  

Any ideas?  Thanks!

Has this issue been resolved yet? I am also somewhat in the dark on what the error message actually means.

I am also having this issue on an iPhone 6s on 4/14/18. Anyone figured this out yet?

Trying to figure this out a little more - I created a brand new iPhone app including only the Contacts plugin. That worked fine. But the plugin does not work in my original app which uses several other plugins.

Thinking it was a conflict with another plugin, I did two things:

First, I added all of the same plugins from the app that does not work, to my new app. Result: the contacts plugin continued to work fine.

Second, I removed all of the plugins from my app that does not work, except for the contacts plugin - thinking it would start to work. Result: it did not start to work, it continued with the error of saying the contacts plugin is unavailable.

Lastly, I removed the contacts plugin and republished, and then added it back in and republished. The error re-occurred. 

My application logs are clear of any errors related to this. 

I am not sure what to try next. Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks,

Hi Erik,

It might be an open door, but did you try to delete and reinstall the app on your phone after rebuilding the apk/ipa file?

Kind regards,

Hi Erik,

No problem. I’m glad I could help.

@Ryan,

Can you check if this also solves your problem and if it does, Mark my answer as the solution?
