Is it possible to create a remote event receiver in sharepoint hosted app?

1 Answer 1


SharePoint hosted apps dont support event handling as they are restricted to run javascript code only. In case of Remote event receiver it uses CSOM code(managed CSOM or C# CSOM) to talk to SharePoint and handle the events.

RER depends on WCF endpoint to remotely (in app web) handle events raised via SharePoint like -ed & -ing events. This WCF endpoint has server side code(managed CSOM) which is not supported in SP hosted app.

Handle events in SP Addins
