Provider Hosted SharePoint Apps that are available to both SharePoint Online and On-Premise RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I am new to the SharePoint App concept and need some guidance.  The answer to this may be much easier than I am making this out to be.  I have read the TechNet material on SharePoint Apps and I am having difficulties trying to conceptually take what I read to apply it to my scenario.  The basic issue I am having is figuring out what needs to be correctly done to make my on-premise remote web accessible to both my on-premise SharePoint farm as well as my SharePoint online tenant.  

    In case it helps, here is what I am trying to do.  I am writing a provider hosted SharePoint App that is just a web part that I need to drop on a SharePoint page and has server side code that queries data from a SQL database and displays results back to the web part to show back on the page.  Other than the app showing on a SharePoint page it does not interact with SharePoint at all.  The server side code (remote web) will be running from a separate server (Windows 2012) on-premise that is accessible from outside our network.  I need the SharePoint App to be accessible from both my on-premise SharePoint 2013 farm as well as my SharePoint Online farm.  

    I think I have an idea of what needs to be done to make this happen but I am hoping that someone can point me in the right direction.
