Technical details for the Alerts app by Accelerator 365

Jump to

Required API permissions

The following Microsoft Graph API permissions are required:

Scope Purpose
User.ReadBasic.All Read all users' basic profiles for audience targeting.
GroupMember.Read.All Read group memberships for audience targeting.

These permissions are delegated and organisation-wide and require approval by a user with the Global Administrator role after the app has been deployed.

Data storage

Data for the Alerts is stored in SharePoint lists. These lists are provisioned from the app as and when required. The lists provisioned are:

List title Relative URL Purpose
Alerts /Lists/WMA_Alerts Storage of the configured alerts.
Alerts dismissals /Lists/WMA_AlertsDismissals Storage of the user dismissals.

Tenant settings

Some apps require configuration settings to be stored either at a tenant level or at an individual app level.

An optional feature enables Alerts to appear in the SharePoint site header via an Application Customizer. This can be set in the Site contents page for a site where the Alerts app has been added. Configuration instructions can be found here.

This property is stored at a tenant level.

Recommended deployment scope

It is expected that the Alerts app is made available only on specific areas of your SharePoint tenant as necessary, e.g., a home site or news site.

Therefore, it is recommended to select the Only enable this app option on deployment (see the Installation instructions page). This means the app is available for Site Owners to manually add to their site.
