In this PnP Webcast, we concentrated on how to call Azure AD secured APIs from SharePoint Framework solutions. This capability was released as part of the SharePoint Framework 1.6 and it provides us a secure way to call enterprise APIs hosted in Azure AD. These APIs can be for example Azure Functions or completely custom WebAPIs.
This capability was released to general availability as part of the SharePoint Framework 1.6 release and it is available for worldwide usage from Office 365.
The presentation covers the following discussion points:
- Steps on using AadHttpClient within SharePoint Framework solutions
- Logical architecture on calling Azure AD secured APIs from your solutions
- Considerations on using AadHttpClient
Webcast demo shows the following things:
- Example Azure Function used for the demo which has been secured with the Azure AD
- Azure Function settings on securing function using Azure AD
- Requesting permissions in the package-solution.json file for the SharePoint Framework solution
- Using AadHttpClient class in your code
- Approving and managing approved permissions for the SharePoint Framework solutions in tenant administrative user interface

What is SharePoint / Office Dev Patterns & Practices (PnP) webcast series?
SharePoint / Office Dev Patterns & Practices (PnP) webcast series covers different patterns, practices, and topics around development with Office 365 and SharePoint. The majority of the topics are valid for the Office 365 and SharePoint on-premises. All webcasts are published at the PnP YouTube channel with additional references to the existing materials.
PnP is a community-driven open source initiative where Microsoft and external community members are sharing their learning’s around implementation practices for Office 365 and SharePoint on-premises (SharePoint Framework and add-in model). Active development and contributions happen in our GitHub repositories. Latest activities and future plans are covered in our monthly community calls which are open to anyone from the community. More details on community calls and open-source projects are available from http://aka.ms/sppnp.
