404 when access Breeze controller? RRS feed

  • User-1873393951 posted

    I created an Asp.Net MVC 5 project and then used NuGet to add hottowl (which includes Breeze). I have the following controller.

    public class BreezeController : ApiController
        readonly EFContextProvider<ApplicationDbContext> _contextProvider = new EFContextProvider<ApplicationDbContext>();
        public string Metadata()
            return _contextProvider.Metadata();
        public IQueryable<Event> Events()
            return _contextProvider.Context.Events;

    And the following code exists in file BreezeWebApiConfig.cs. However, I always got the 404 error when try to access http://localhost:49890/Breeze/Events. Did I miss anything? Or is the following breeze routing not working?

    using System.Web.Http;
    [assembly: WebActivator.PreApplicationStartMethod(
        typeof(ST13a.App_Start.BreezeWebApiConfig), "RegisterBreezePreStart")]
    namespace ST13a.App_Start {
      /// Inserts the Breeze Web API controller route at the front of all Web API routes
      /// This class is discovered and run during startup; see
      /// http://blogs.msdn.com/b/davidebb/archive/2010/10/11/light-up-your-nupacks-with-startup-code-and-webactivator.aspx
      public static class BreezeWebApiConfig {
        public static void RegisterBreezePreStart() {
              name: "BreezeApi",
              routeTemplate: "breeze/{controller}/{action}"

    Look at this: routeTemplate: "breeze/{controller}/{action}"

    and your controller name is BreezeController, since: {controller} = Breeze, {action} = Events, then you should call it:


    there is no problem with case. You can also call http://localhost:49890/breeze/breeze/events

    Have fun
