React Apollo Error: Invariant Violation: Could Not Find "client" In The Context Or Passed In As An Option

- 1 answer

I'm building a project using React, Apollo and Next.js. I'm trying to update react-apollo to 3.1.3 and I'm now getting the following error when viewing the site.

Invariant Violation: Could not find "client" in the context or passed in as an option. Wrap the root component in an , or pass an ApolloClient instance in via options.

If I downgrade the react-apollo package to 2.5.8 it works without issue so I'm thinking something has changed between 2.5 and 3.x but can't find anything in the react-apollo or next-with-apollo documentation to indicate what that might be. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.


import withApollo from 'next-with-apollo';
import ApolloClient from 'apollo-boost';
import { endpoint } from '../config';

function createClient({ headers }) {
    return new ApolloClient({
        uri: endpoint,
        request: operation => {
                fetchOptions: {
                    credentials: 'include'
        // local data
        clientState: {
            resolvers: {
                Mutation: {}
            defaults: {}

export default withApollo(createClient);


import App from 'next/app';
import { ApolloProvider } from 'react-apollo';
import Page from '../components/Page';
import { Overlay } from '../components/styles/Overlay';
import withData from '../lib/withData';

class MyApp extends App {
    static async getInitialProps({ Component, ctx }) {
        let pageProps = {};
        if (Component.getInitialProps) {
            pageProps = await Component.getInitialProps(ctx);

        // this exposes the query to the user
        pageProps.query = ctx.query;
        return { pageProps };

    render() {
        const { Component, apollo, pageProps } = this.props;

        return (
            <ApolloProvider client={apollo}>
                <Overlay id="page-overlay" />
                    <Component {...pageProps} />

export default withData(MyApp);



In my case, I found that I had [email protected] installed as well as @apollo/[email protected]. Removing @apollo/react-hooks and just relying on react-apollo fixed the invariant issue for me. Make sure that you aren't using any mismatched versions in your lock file or package.json

This is what someone said in a GitHub issue thread, which, was the case for me too. Make sure you try it!
