Sharepoint app publishing via Seller Dashboard RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I have an app that I want to publish via the SharePoint Seller Dashboard. For this app to work I've created a couple of lists, libraries, sites on my SharePoint instance, changed settings regarding the enterprise keywords, term tool, groups etc. My questions is what happens when a user/company installs my app from the Office Store, do all the list,libraries,sites and settings in general get copied to that company's SharePoint instance? Do I perhaps need to trigger any powershell scripts to import all the configurations or is there something else I would need to do?

    Thanks in advance.

  • Hi Daniel,

    When you upload an add-in to the Office Store for publication, Microsoft performs a series of verification checks to ensure your add-in adheres to the add-in content and behavior guidelines. For example, it checks whether the add-in manifest markup is valid and complete and verifies that any SharePoint solution packages (.wsp files) that are included in the add-in do not contain elements that aren't allowed, or SharePoint Features with a scope that is broader than Web. The package is also inspected for objectionable content. If the add-in package passes all tests, it's wrapped into a file and signed by Microsoft.
