iPad add-in. authentication via external link RRS feed

  • Question

  • Dear,

    To log in to my office add-in for iPad. I need to sign in to another server, because of that the link opens in the safari app instead of the word app. I adapted my code, so I'm logged in to the add-in in the safari app. My credentials are saved as localstorage. 

    But in the word app, it doesn't find my credentials. 

    Is the iframe in the word app a different 'browser' and is that the reason I don't find my credentials in localstorage? Is there a workaround?

    Kind regards,

    Emiel, UPrince

  • Hi beemihae,

    According to your description, if you want to your add-in will run in Office for iOS, you could sideload your add-in's manifest onto an iPad using iTunes, or sideload your add-in's manifest directly in Office for Mac. Please correct me if I have any misunderstandings on your question.

    For more information, click here to refer about Sideload Office Add-ins on iPad and Mac for testing

    In addition could you provide more information about your issue, for example screenshot, exception etc., that will help us reproduce and resolve it.

    Thanks for your understanding.
