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

Recommended deployment scope

It is expected that the Spotlight app will be made available to all sites on your SharePoint tenant for any content editor to use.

Therefore, it is recommended to select the Enable this app and add it to all sites option on deployment (see the Installation instructions page). This means the app is added to all sites in the tenant by default.
