I want to be able to add a JSS component to a placeholder in the Experience Editor by creating a new content item, but after I select the rendering I do not see the Create or Copy To links. I am only able to select pre-existing data items.

I don't think it's a permissions issue: I am using EE as admin so I have full access. I found another question on here that pointed to the renderings not having their Datasource Template or Datasource Location correctly set, but mine are set properly.

This is in Sitecore 9.1. I have this same JSS app deployed to another environment running Sitecore 9.0 and I see the links there. I haven't been able to get it working since moving to 9.1 but I'm not sure how to diagnose.

As far as I know, those links are SXA-specific features. While they might show up when adding JSS components in a Sitecore environment that has both SXA and JSS installed, it's not expected that they'll function as expected.

  • Those links should not be visible while adding JSS renderings - even if SXA is installed. I'm pretty sure I was hiding theme, but let me check that again... Commented May 2, 2019 at 21:00
