In this PnP Web Cast we concentrate on the different infrastructural options around setting up provider hosted add-in environment for SharePoint 2013 or SharePoint 2016. This time we do not have specific demo included in the web cast, we rather concentrate on the detailed considerations around the provider hosted add-in model environment. Covered topics are following.

  • Considerations for provider hosted add-in hardware requirements
  • Different logical network designs with provider hosted environments for on-premises
  • Considerations around using either low trust or high trust authentication options in on-premises

Classic farm or full trust code solutions will be also supported by SharePoint 2016, but we strongly recommend moving to SharePoint add-in model based implementations. This has multiple different benefits, like following:

  • They are the focus of Office engineering team moving forward
  • Greatly reduce the risk of impacting the performance of SharePoint Server farms
  • Improve the stability and reduce operational cost of the SharePoint Server farm
  • Can scale out the application without scaling out the entire SharePoint Server farm
  • Does not require dedicated farms for customizations due to application isolation
  • Does not require downtime for SharePoint to deploy updates
  • More flexible deployment patterns to improve agility and reduce time to market for the business and end users
  • Allows customers/SI's to leverage standard Web Development skills over much harder to obtain SharePoint Development skills that have been traditionally employed
  • Will run in both SharePoint Server and SharePoint Online

    How you intend to use the certs, do you procure a new cert every time there is an APP or you use wild cards.

    if wild card certs are used then how can each app or add-in be configured in its own IIS site?

    The requirements for certificates and possible issue with using one certificate for the HIGH trust so much scary and I lost the interest in suggesting on using the provider hosted app for a feature.

    Thanks for making it so complex and making it impossible for getting the approval for a highly secure/compliant process based company.
