What is SharePoint Application catalog? and where do we use this?


The App Catalog is a site with the purpose of making apps (internally developed or third-party) available for users to install.

Maybe one of the coolest features is that you can install apps from the App Catalog to your sites, without going to each individual site.

You use the App Catalog by creating a new App Catalog site, and then add the Apps you want users to be able to download to the site.

Actually, Microsoft has excellent documentation regarding this: http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint-help/use-the-app-catalog-to-make-custom-business-apps-available-for-your-sharepoint-online-environment-HA102772362.aspx

The link even contains information about how to set it up, and add apps you, or a third-party developer has developed.

  • Do we have something like centralized app catalog? where we upload the apps to available on all the webapplications? Sep 25 '13 at 5:03
  • I think you need one app catalog per web application. No limits in having se apps being the same in both though. Sep 25 '13 at 5:52
