This guide provides the steps necessary to add the e-Share SharePoint application to SharePoint sites in your O365 tenant.
Prerequisite: The Organization must have the GRAPH API enabled in order for the application to function correctly. To verify that GRAPH is enabled, organization administrators can navigate to "Manage Organization" page of Cloud Web Portal, in the "Corporate Cloud Providers" section and navigate to the middle of the page as shown in the screenshot below,
If GRAPH API is not enabled for your Organization, please contact e-Share Support - please refrain from enabling GRAPH API on your own.
Install eShare SharePoint App to Organization’s Microsoft Tenant
To begin with, the procedure described below assumes that the administrator responsible for adding the application is assigned with the SharePoint Administrator or Global Administrator role.
When an administrator is adding an application from the SharePoint Apps Store, is given the option to decide whether to “Only enable this app” or to “Enable this app and add it to all sites”. eShare’s best practice recommendation is to “Enable this app and add it to all sites”. If your organization chooses to “Only enable this app”, this will make the application available for site owners to add it from the “My apps” page later.
To add eShare SharePoint application and enable it for all sites:
- Access SharePoint Admin Center (https://yourdomain.sharepoint.com) and go the “More features” page and click “Open” under Apps, as illustrated below:
This will launch the "Manage Apps" page.
While on the Apps page locate and click on the SharePoint Store in the left pane to access Microsoft’s SharePoint Store:
From the SharePoint Store page, click in the “Search by app name or publisher” box and search for “e-Share Trusted Sharing for SharePoint” or “e-Share” to list eShare’s application:
Click on the highlighted application to access the application’s details page. From there, you will be presented with the option to “Add Apps site”:
In the new dialogue window, you will be asked to define if the application will be deployed as is, making it available to SharePoint site owners to be added on their discretion by visiting the "My Apps" page, or alternatively deploy it Organization wide, as shown in the picture below,
You will then be asked to navigate to the API Access page to provide consent for the necessary permissions,
In the "API access" page, select "approve" as shown in the picture below,
You have successfully deployed the e-Share SharePoint application to your tenant, in order to verify that the application has been successfully deployed, you can navigate back to the "Apps" section to check on its status,
Note: Please allow some time for the application to be made available in the tenant, as a general rule, deployments range from a few minutes to a few hours.
