SharePoint Online back-end for a mobile application, with guest users RRS feed

  • Question

  • I would like to use SharePoint Online as a back-end for a new mobile application.


    • Mobile application with a lot of users, SharePoint back-end. Without needing to have a licence for each user.

    Setup idea

    • SharePoint Online with 5 licenced users, that can access SharePoint itself
    • Mobile application with <10.000 users, all included in SharePoint/AD as guest users.
    • The mobile application gets/posts everything via SharePoint API's & O365 Graph API's


    • Can guest users get access via SharePoint API's & O365 Graph
    • Limitation on # of guest users?
    • API call limitation/throtteling (how soon? / Can this be bought off?)

    Are these fears actually an issue? And if so, can you help me to bypass my fears :) ?

    Thanks in advance. Wouter

  • Hi

    A user with no SharePoint license can still access SharePoint sites by default.  And you can create thousands of users in your O365 admin center.
