Enable SharePoint Embedded in your Microsoft 365 SharePoint Online tenant

Completed

In this exercise, you'll enable SharePoint Embedded on your Microsoft 365 SharePoint tenant.

Prerequisites

Enable SharePoint Embedded in your Microsoft 365 SharePoint Online tenant

In order to use SharePoint Embedded to create and register Container Types, you must first enable it on your SharePoint Online tenant. You must perform this task on both the provider and consuming tenants where you define your application and on any consuming tenants that will use your SharePoint Embedded app.

Note

You can use the same SharePoint Online tenant as both the provider/developer and consuming tenant.

Enabling SharePoint Embedded on a SharePoint Online tenant is a one-way operation; it can't be disabled. This is to ensure any apps you've created on the consuming tenant will continue to function.

Once you enable SharePoint Embedded on a SharePoint Online tenant, you'll be able to create a Container Type in your provider tenant and register the Container Type in a consuming tenant.

To enable SharePoint Embedded, navigate to the Microsoft 365 admin center (https://portal.microsoft.com) and sign in with the Work and School of your Microsoft 365 tenant's admin account.

Select Show All at the bottom of the left-hand navigation, then select Admin Centers > SharePoint.
