In this PnP Web Cast we concentrate on the Office 365 Dev PnP Core Component which is designed to increase the productivity of developers when you are developing applications for SharePoint Online or for SharePoint on-premises. It encapsulates numerous complex operations to more streamlined methods and usage, so that developers can more efficiently concentrate on solving business problems. PnP Core component is released as Nuget packageand can be used in provider hosted add-ins or from native windows applications, like with console applications. It's also used by the PnP PowerShell CmdLets, which enables you to take advantage of the Core Component capabilities without the need of using Visual Studio.

There are currently two different versions of the PnP Core Component, one targeted for SharePoint Online and for SharePoint 2013 on-premises. SharePoint 2016 version is coming later 2016. Different versions are released due the differences in supported CSOM operations.

One of the great great capabilities in the PnP Core Component is the AuthenticationManager class, which can be used to get SharePoint ClientContext easily regardless of the used authentication models in SharePoint Online or in SharePoint on-premises. Supported authentication models for your application are following.

  • SharePoint Online - With credentials
  • SharePoint Online - With web loging
  • SharePoint Online - App Only
  • SharePoint Online - Azure Active Directory - Native Client
  • SharePoint Online - Azure Active Directory - App Only
  • SharePoint 2013 / 2016 - With credentials
  • SharePoint 2013 / 2016 - ADFS mixed authentication
  • SharePoint 2013 / 2016 - App only

In the demo section Bert concentrates on showing how to use different authentication methods when you need to gain access to SharePoint Online.
