I am writing a SharePoint App (to be hosted in Office 365 and hopefully sold in the SharePoint App Store) and need to be able to load a service account username and password from Secure Store to allow the app to connect to a remote system.

I cannot find any guides on T'Internet about how to connect to the Secure Store Service from the App Web.

Has anyone done this, or know how to do this?

I just want to bump this up as there have been no responses.

Hopefully this doesn't mean that this just isn't possible.



I doubt its possible. If you load credentials to a client the credentials are not secure anymore and thats against the concept of the secure store.
