Assembly binding redirect in Azure Functions


Staff member
I have created an Azure function and as we know it has the package Microsoft.NET.Sdk.Functions 1.0.8 which is dependent on Newtonsoft.Json 9.0.1.

I have added another class library as a reference to this Azure Function which depends on Newtonsoft.Json 11.0.2.

During runtime, I get an error stating:

"FileNotFoundException: Could not load file or assembly
'Newtonsoft.Json, Version=, Culture=neutral,
PublicKeyToken=30ad4fe6b2a6aeed' or one of its dependencies. The
system cannot find the file specified."

This looks like a problem related to Assembly Binding Redirects so I follow this solution to try and fix

But, this doesn't help as well.

Is there a step that I'm missing or any other workaround for this kind of case? Help is appreciated.
