- Check all requirements: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/office365/admin/manage/centralized-deployment-of-add-ins?view=o365-worldwide.
- Highlighting: On a Windows device, Version 1704 or later of Office 365 ProPlus. On a Mac, Version 15.34 or later.
- You need to be a Global Azure Admin to perform the below steps
- Contact your Partner or Templafy Support at email@example.com for a custom manifest.xml file
Seamless SSO and provisioning
For SSO to work without user interaction, you must reach out to your Partner or Templafy Support for a custom manifest.xml file. This is to ensure that users are redirected correctly to your tenant-URL to initiate the SP-login and provision the users correctly to your own tenant.
Step-by-step guide deployment
- Go to the O365 Admin Portal (https://admin.microsoft.com)
- Click "Settings"
- Click "Services & add-ins"
- Click"+ Deploy Add-In"
- Click "Next" and "Upload custom apps".
- Select "I have the manifest file (.xml) on this device." and click "Choose file"
- Browse location of the manifest file (.xml) for upload
- Click "Upload"
- Select which Users/Groups should have access (or "Everyone") and click "Deploy"
It will take up to 10 minutes or so for the add-in to be deployed. You will receive an email notification confirming your successful deployment. Users might need to relaunch Office to see the add-in icon in the ribbon.
NOTE: If your Office version for Mac is lower than 16.36 (released on 04/13/2020) the WebAdd-in may not automatically display in the ribbon. If this occurs, users will have to manually add the WebAdd-in from the Admin managed part of the Add-in store (WebAdd-in is deployed to O365 devices but not being displayed)
