How does it work

When you click on the app in SharePoint, you get redirected to auth/sharepoint/appredirect. The app extracts host url, creates a hash and stores it in Mongo. The the user is get authenticated. Authentication related data is stored inside session, the user information like login name and email are stored inside Mongo.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
