  • Hi,

    SharePoint apps mainly used to handle user permission.

    Imaging there are users who only have read only permission in site level, but now, based on business logic, we need these users have permission to some lists or other resources, then we could create apps with App Permissions:

    And for SharePoint Online envrionment, SharePoint apps is also necessary and suggested ways to do customization for developers, since Online Tenant not supported SharePoint Server Object Model, we can only use CSOM/JSOM in Apps.

    Reference:

    SharePoint Add-ins

    Thanks

    Best Regards

  • Hi,

    This was helpful for me.

    But on the part where you mentioned the point "Imaging there are users who only have read only permission in site level, but now, based on business logic, we need these users have permission to some lists or other resources, then we could create apps with App Permissions".. 

    This could be achieved with by giving unique permission to list as well.Please correct me if I am wrong.

    The reference was definitely helpful for understanding purpose.

    Regards,

  • Hi sayani,

    Yes, unique permission list can also achieve to break permission for specific users.

    But App Model provide a option to do this with coding and programmatically. We could use SharePoint Jsom code running based on App Permission for this purpose.

    Thanks

    Best Regards
