Ask questionsCould not find "client" in the context of ApolloConsumer when using react-apollo 2.5.3 with MockedProvider

Intended outcome:

I have a React component that makes use of <ApolloConsumer> in order to access its client render prop and explicitly call client.query when a user action occurs. In order to test my component in my Jest/Enzyme test suite, I wrap it in <MockedProvider> and mount it with Enzyme. My tests should run with no issue.

Example component:

import React, { Component } from "react";
import { graphql, ApolloConsumer } from "react-apollo";
import gql from "graphql-tag";

export const query = gql`
  query ErrorTemplate {
    people {

class App extends Component {
  constructor(props) {

    this.state = {
      people: []

  render() {
    return (
        {(client) => (
            <button onClick={(event) => {
              }).then(response => {
                this.setState({ people: });
            }}>Fetch People</button>
              { => <li key={}>{}</li>)}

export default App;

Example tests:

import React from "react";
import { MockedProvider } from "react-apollo/test-utils";
import Enzyme, { mount } from "enzyme";
import Adapter from "enzyme-adapter-react-16";

Enzyme.configure({ adapter: new Adapter() });

import App, { query } from "./App";

const mock = {
  request: {
  result: {
    people: [
      { id: 1, name: 'John Smith' },
      { id: 2, name: 'Sara Smith' },
      { id: 3, name: 'Budd Deey' },

describe("App", () => {
  it("mounts", () => {
    const app = mount(
      <MockedProvider addTypename={false} mocks={[mock]}>
        <App />

Actual outcome:

My test fails with a message saying: Invariant Violation: Could not find "client" in the context of ApolloConsumer. Wrap the root component in an <ApolloProvider>.

How to reproduce the issue:


If you look at the commit history of the context-error-example branch, the single test passes in the second to last commit (412d2d57f52d2b10c1620dd2259bd8269eab74e5), but when I update react-apollo to 2.5.3 in the last commit (26474d6aab4cbdca7d9c08c9af386f4be8f0a2de), the test fails with the same error described above.


  • apollo-client@2.3.2
  • react-apollo@2.5.3

I have the same issue with "react-apollo": "2.5.3" and I use react-testing-library for my tests.
