Understanding OAuth is essential for SharePoint 2013 developers because it forms the basis of how apps are granted permission to communicate with SharePoint. This session will focus on how OAuth works, how SharePoint 2013 uses OAuth to grant permissions to apps, and how to inspect information in the OAuth token for troubleshooting.
This session will focus on how OAuth works, how SharePoint 2013 uses OAuth to grant permissions to apps that may be different than the current user's permissions, and how to troubleshoot authentication and authorization for the new SharePoint 2013 app model.
