Update redirect URL of the app registered through Seller Dashboard RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have a provider hosted app called “Muhimbi PDF Converter for SharePoint Online”, it is listed on the SharePoint app store using the seller dashboard site. See

    The remote web app is hosted on the azure and it uses the default URL ( provided by the azure web app.

    It has been published in the app store for the last three years. There are many users who have installed the app and using it ever since.

    We are looking to update the remote web URL as we are moving the web app to another region, and assigning CNAME record (for GDPR and compliance issues). We would like to know what options are available.

    Can we do it automatically without affecting existing users? Or will creating a new version of the app solve it? The change should be transparent to the users, the App Store listing - and associated reviews - should continue to work.

    We tried all possible options, but we cannot afford any down time or forcing our customers to upgrade to the new App. We have been in contact with various MS teams, but we are being sent around in circles. We already looked at several blogs including following but non of them seem to be helping us.

    Also, updating the existing app manifest settings using _layouts/appinv.aspx does not work for SharePoint online app registration. It does not change any details and keeps old app details. 

    Please assist.

  • Hi Kiran,

    did you ever get a reply to this question? We have the exact same issue for our add-in Sintel Forms For SharePoint and can't find anyone in MS that can provide the information we need.

    Thanks in advance,
