    Umbraco Form breaks on deploy

    Forms will not load within the Umbraco Backoffice or front-end templates after deployment.

    I used Web Deploy to Azure for a dev site and the Forms showed up fine. I then deployed to an Azure live env using Azure CI from BitBucket and the Forms are broken. I have confirmed the form and workflow json files are in their proper place on the remote environment. I also disconnected the CI and used Web Deploy to live, but the same problem occurs with Forms.

    Note: Live env is running a copy of the database from the working env.

    Error received:

    Unhandled controller exception occurred for request '""'

    Umbraco.Forms.Core.Exceptions.ProviderException: Unable to find the Field with the GUID 3f92e01b-29e2-4a30-bf33-9df5580ed52c at Umbraco.Forms.Core.Providers.FieldCollection.get_Item(Guid id) at Umbraco.Forms.Core.Services.FieldTypeStorage.GetFieldTypeByField(Field field) at Umbraco.Forms.Web.Editors.FormController.GetWithWorkflowsByGuid(Guid guid)

    Umbraco version 8.6.1 Umbraco Forms: 8.4.1

    So I discovered the problem here. The deployment did not include all of the Umbraco.Forms assemblies. Installing the plugin does not add them as project references, so I dropped them into a /lib/ folder in my solution and referenced them from there. The next deployment built successfully.

    All DLL files installed with Umbraco Forms need to be referenced in your web project.

    I recommend you to install it as nuget package instead.

    Use Nuget to install: Latest Umbraco v8 version works with UmbracoCms > v8.1.0

    Install-Package UmbracoForms -Version 8.12.2
