  • Question

  • Hei ,

    i want to deploy the sharepoint 2013 app without using visual studio. since we need ClientId, ClientSecret .Can anyone tell how can we update the clientId, clientSecret in AppManifest file if we have just .App file ? Whats the best way to do that ?? or anyone has sample ??

    i have searched alot on google also but didnt found any relevant information that how can we deploy without visual studio . i know we have to create appcatalog etc but unsure about how to update the clientid, client secret.

    Any help would be appreciated

  • Hi mirsalman,

    We can update the Client Secret and install Provider hosted app using PowerShell:

    $clientID = "74599670-eb74-4348-9e7a-f9dc07c576a2"
    $appFile = "C:\Temp\MyApp.app"
    $siteCollection = "http://manasbhardwaj.net"
    $appName = "My App"
    $web = Get-SPWeb -Identity $siteCollection
    $realm = Get-SPAuthenticationRealm -ServiceContext $web.Site;
    $appIdentifier = $clientID  + '@' + $realm;
    #Register the App with given ClientId
    Register-SPAppPrincipal -DisplayName $appName -NameIdentifier $appIdentifier -Site $web | Out-Null
    $app = Import-SPAppPackage -Path $appFile -Site $siteCollection -Source ObjectModel -Confirm:$false 	
    #Install the App
    Install-SPApp -Web $siteCollection -Identity $app	| Out-Null
