Office Store Embargoes Autohosted SharePoint Apps for Indeterminate Period RRS feed

  • General discussion

  •  All Involved with Office Store SharePoint Apps,

    I just learned from a member of the Commerce UX team that even if I was to be able to upload the SharePoint.app file, the Office Store team would reject it because it's autohosted in SharePoint.

    From an obscure paragraph in Validation policies for apps FAQ:

    "Can I submit an autohosted app for SharePoint to the Office Store?

    The infrastructure for autohosted apps will remain in preview status for a period of time after SharePoint 2013 releases. Autohosted apps (which includes all apps that depend on Microsoft Access) will not be accepted by the Office Store during this preview phase.

    For more information on autohosted apps, see How to: Create a basic autohosted app in SharePoint 2013."

    This issue kills any chance devs have to work through the issues of developing and certifying SharePoint apps that use LightSwitch HTML 5 Client Preview 2 and Windows Azure Mobile Services in the configuration demonstrated by Scott Guthrie at the SharePoint Conference 2012.
