We have a SharePoint 2013 instance in the cloud. I am trying to figure out the ways we can write an application (be it web app, windows form, windows service) to either:
Get a SAML token from a NAM site and pass it to the application so then it can use that token to hit the SharePoint Azure (cloud?) assets to manipulate them.
Get a SAML token by passing credentials some other way.
Sadly, I am a very visual learner and complete code examples help me learn best but I have been hard pressed to find anything that makes a lot of sense or they are poorly documented.
Applications would be done in VS2013 using .NET and C#.
Can anyone help point me in the right direction? Even an example of sort of fudging it with providing a login and password to get the SAML token then using that token would be most helpful. We sadly have no one that really understands SharePoint 2013 online.
our sharepoint cloud environment I think, using MS federation authentication method at least when on our network as you don't need to supply a password just your log in name and it figures it out.
the apps we plan to run, would all be done internally on our network but those apps need to be able to communicate with sharepoint in the cloud.
