Add app to trusted app catalogue in a conventient way RRS feed

  • Question

  • According to this article: every user should specify the trusted app catalog URL in his local MS Office Installation under: File > Options > Trust Center > Trust Center Settings > Trusted App Catalogs. Now we'll have up to 50,000 end users that work with Word via our platform. Is it possible to configure or set the Trusted App Catalogs on some central place (e.g. on the WebApps Server or any kind of web server) to enable our apps automatically for every MS Word instance opened through our system?

    I'm aware thatthere seems to be a possibility to add an app catalogue via registry entry, however we do not administrate any of our clients systems so that would not be an option for us at the moment. Ideally the user would open the document and gets asked (e.g. via popup) whether he/she wants to allow a certain app. Once the user confirms that the app is automatically loaded.
