Hi,

I've got the exception when using SharePoint Search API:

Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.ServerException: No User or App Context found

my code works fine on one SharePoint site, but on another it fails with above error.
My code is just a simple search query:

        KeywordQuery keywordQuery = new KeywordQuery(_context);
        keywordQuery.StartRow = startIndex;
        keywordQuery.QueryText = $"IsDocument:1";
        keywordQuery.RowLimit = _searchPagesChunkLimit;
        keywordQuery.RowsPerPage = _searchPagesChunkLimit;
        keywordQuery.TrimDuplicates = false;
        SearchExecutor searchExecutor = new SearchExecutor(_context);
        ClientResult<ResultTableCollection> results = searchExecutor.ExecuteQuery(keywordQuery);
        _context.ExecuteQuery();

Please help.
Thanks.

    Well, we've found out what was the problem - it's a lack of rights for the application, specifically it's
    Sites.ReadAll
    I wish the error message would be more informative.
