Step 5: Test App

Posted by Paul on July 22, 2014


(This is a part of the article-series Configure App Catalog)

Here we are ready to test our app catalog site. Ensure the following before testing the app:

1. If you are using a Virtual Machine, Use the browser within the VM

2. Use Internet Explorer as your browser

Do not use System Account or Administrator account

Now open your SharePoint Site. Choose Add an App & Visit the SharePoint Store. You should be able to see the following Apps from Office App Store visible.

If you can see the above page then you are good.

Please note the following:

1. Choose free apps first

2. Greyed ones are for SharePoint Online and won’t work in our case of On-Premise

I tried with a Content Management App named Bright Banner, went ahead and Trusted it & after waiting for few minutes it appeared in my left pane.

On clicking it took me to the full-fledged app page.

In production environment app hosting, you should get help from the Network Administrator in configuring DNS & Zones.
