  1. Restricting access to Outlook add-in

    As of right now there is no way to restrict who can install an add-in if a person knows the URL to the manifest file.

    Of cause one could argue that the manifest file could be placed behind a login (either forms or normal Windows Auth), but still if a person somehow got hold of the manifest file (through an e-mail or what not), the person could still install the add-in.

    It would make sense to add a section to the manifest file that could be used to describe characteristics about the users/domains that that are allowed to install the…

    We are not planning on adding such entry in the manifest, reason being: it admins can control within their organization:
    a. that add-ins from the store can be used or not.
    b. deploy add-ins to specific (and intended) users or groups.

    On top of the above, the add-in logic can also enforce such rule.

    Hence we are not adding this functionality any time soon.

  2. Retrieve attached files in the composer app using the JavaScript API

    In the composer app, there is no way to retrieve the attachments of the mail you are writing.

    I would be nice to have the same functionality as in read app, where you get the attachments using Office.context.mailbox.item.attachment

    Thanks for our feedback! Although we appreciate your time and effort to give us this feedback, due to performance reasons, it’s not something we’re planning to do right now. We do not want to stream attachment bytes from server into client and into iframe of add-in. Instead, you can save the message, listen for notifications on send folder and then sync down the attachments using REST APIs.

    Thanks!
