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 Launchpad is stored in SharePoint lists and libraries. These are provisioned from the app as and when required. The lists/libraries provisioned are:

List/library title Relative URL Purpose
Launchpad links /Lists/WMLP_Links  Storage of the links.
Launchpad categories /Lists/WMLP_Categories Categorisation of the links.
Launchpad preferences /Lists/WMLP_Preferences User preferences and configuration
Launchpad user images /WMLP_UserImages  A hidden document library for link images uploaded by a user.

Recommended deployment scope

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