User permissions inside a SharePoint Hosted App Web RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've created a SharePoint-hosted app for SharePoint 2013 online. This SharePoint App Web consists of a custom list within it and in its default page has a button. When user clicks the button, a list item is created in the custom list (note that this custom list resides within the app web). Now, I understand that the user permissions inside the app web are inherited from the host web. 

    My requirement here is to allow the host web site visitors to be able to use the button in the app web i.e., when visitors click on the button, list item should be created within the custom list in the app web. Is this feasible?

    My SharePoint hosted app had a default aspx page and functionality implemented thru javascript OM.

    My Question here is as mentioned below:

    Since the user permissions inside an app web are inherited from host web, is there a way to elevate the privilege or allow app to perform actions on behalf of the user?

    Thanks Arut
