I'm looking to see if there is a way to grab the current URL and title of the page that the add-in part is residing on. The add-in part is a Provider Hosted add-in with the main piece living outside of SharePoint. I am using JSOM at the moment to grab the Client Context and Web Context.

I understand that the cross domain scripting is preventing me from using traditional window.top.location.href.

Does anyone know of any tips or tricks that I may be missing to grab information that would otherwise be relatively easy to grab.

SharePoint is essentially using Cross-Domain scripting and a proxy page to share information between SharePoint and Azure. I need to grab the parent window of the iFrame of the proxy page.

    What are you trying to achieve with that? Do you want to store some config data specific for that add-in part? – Sergei Sergeev Dec 13 '16 at 17:39

    I have an app that attempting to track which page (title and URL) the action within the app was taken upon. Think of a survey. The information is added to a database related to the user. The add-in can be added to any page on the Site Collection. – Marion O Dec 14 '16 at 18:22

    Similar need here - I need to check the page permissions of the user who is opening the page to display content depending on those permissions. No solution yet. – Heinrich Ulbricht Jan 16 '17 at 14:48
