  • 2. Agenda• Apps Model Overview• App Access to SharePoint – RESTful Access – Client Side Object Model (CSOM) – Cross-domain Access – OAuth Access• Other Topics @Bob1German • @SPDCP •
  • 3. Apps 101 Host Web REST or Client OMLink orIFrame App @Bob1German • @SPDCP •
  • 4. App Hosting OptionsHost HostWeb Web App App Web (optional) Web App Azure or other provider SharePoint Provider or Hosted App Auto-Hosted App @Bob1German • @SPDCP •
  • 5. App Hosting OptionsApp Web Provider or Azure• Provisioned by SharePoint • Auto-hosted apps are on app installation provisioned by Office 365• No Server Code – period on app installation (though you can leverage • Pretty much installed ASP.NET controls) Host anything goes Web• May contain declarative, web-scoped • Access host web via Oauth App features (lists, site Web pages, client script, images, css) App• Access host web via cross- domain library @Bob1German • @SPDCP •
  • 6. App IsolationHost http://myserver/sites/myweb/Web App Web http://app12345/sites/myweb/ (optional) App Azure or other provider Different domain names leverage browsers’ same-origin policy @Bob1German • @SPDCP •
  • 7. Isolated Application shows: - Client Side Object Model - Declarative features in App Site - Simple Client Web Part (“App Part”)Chord CalculatorDEMONSTRATION @Bob1German • @SPDCP •
  • 8. App Access to SharePoint @Bob1German • @SPDCP •
  • 9. Choosing an App Model2010 Model 2013 Apps• Reuse and backward • App code is reusable in compatibility with existing SharePoint and Office solutions • Better isolation – no more• Full access to server OM leftover web parts and lists – Nearly complete access to • App-level AuthN from Azure everything in SharePoint or other provider – Well documented – • No dependency on User MSDN, many Code Service books, blogs, etc. • Leverages general web• Leverages SharePoint development skills development skills @Bob1German • @SPDCP •
  • 10. Choosing an Access MethodREST CSOM• Synchronous or • Asynchronous only in asynchronous in Javascript Javascript• Returns entities (e.g. • Returns SharePoint objects Contact, Task) (e.g. List, ListItem)• Easier access from jQuery– • Easier access from .NET no dependency on SP.JS server side • Batched requests @Bob1German • @SPDCP •
  • 11. Choosing a Hosting ModelSharePoint Hosted Provider / Azure Hosted• No server side code, period • Server-side code• Access to OOB SharePoint • Server is not subject to web controls on the page cross-domain policy• Able to store content on • More flexible data storage customer’s SP infrastructure (SQL Azure, etc.) @Bob1German • @SPDCP •
  • 12. Accessing Data with Client OM OData (REST) @Bob1German • @SPDCP •
  • 13. What’s New in CSOM So much more than simple site and list access!• User Profiles • Sharing• Search • Workflow• Taxonomy • E-Discovery• Feeds • IRM• Publishing • Analytics• Business Connectivity Services @Bob1German • @SPDCP •
  • 14. Silverlight App w/Cross-Domain Policy• CSOM Cross-domain Access• CSOM File UploadWebcam DemoDEMONSTRATION @Bob1German • @SPDCP •
  • 15. Representational State Transfer (REST) JSON ATOM JSON ATOM WPF/WinForm/Office Silverlight JavaScript @Bob1German • @SPDCP •
  • 16. Representational State Transfer (REST)• Operations map to HTTP verbs – Retrieve items/lists  GET – Create new item  POST – Update an item  PUT or MERGE – Delete an item  DELETE – These apply to links (lookups) as well• SharePoint rules apply during updates – Validation, access control, etc. @Bob1German • @SPDCP •
  • 17. URL Conventions• Addressing lists and items List of lists /_api/web/lists List /_api/web/lists(‘guid’) List /_api/web/lists/getbytitle(‘Title’) Items /_api/web/lists/getbytitle(listname)/items Item /_api/web/lists/getbytitle(listname)/items(1) Single column /_api/web/lists/getbytitle(listname)/items(1)/fields/getByTitle (Description) Sorting ?$orderby=Fullname Filtering $filter=JobTitle eq SDE Projection ?$select=Fullname,JobTitle Paging ?$top=10&$skip=30 @Bob1German • Inline expansion ?$expand=Project @SPDCP •
  • 18. jQuery App with Cross-Domain LibraryImage RotatorDEMONSTRATION @Bob1German • @SPDCP •
  • 19. Open Authentication• Standard in use by dozens of public sites• Similar to a valet key – App gives to a partly trusted 3rd party – Grants limited access• SharePoint grants the app access on the user’s behalf – No need to pass the user’s credentials – SharePoint can limit the scope of access @Bob1German • @SPDCP •
  • 20. Azure-Hosted App with OAuthContacts MapDEMONSTRATION @Bob1German • @SPDCP •
  • 21. Remote Event Receivers• Require a provider or Azure-hosted app• Uses Access Control Services (ACS) token – Passed from SharePoint to remote web service – Web service can request a token to send back to SharePoint• SharePoint calls a web service with the following methods: – ProcessEvent() – Synchronous – ProcessOneWayEvent() – Asynchronous• List, ListItem, Web, and App level scopes• App Events – call AppEventReceiver.svc – App Installed – App Uninstalling – App Upgraded• Caveats: – No guaranteed delivery – Watch latency and performance on synchronous events @Bob1German • @SPDCP •
