Office 365 API Visual Studio API

Microsoft today announced that they releasing an update to the Office 365 API Tool for Visual Studio 2013, which includes Office 365 API client libraries for .NET applications and JavaScript for multi-device hybrid applications. This update brings in some changes based on feedback and bug fixes since the previous release.

  • When you open the tool for the first time to add Office 365 APIs to your project, the Register your app link makes it explicit that you are registering a new application in Microsoft Azure Active Directory (AAD).
  • With today’s update, you can now associate your Windows Phone 8.1 project with an Azure Active Directory application using the Office 365 API tool.
  • The tool now logs messages in the Visual Studio output window so you can see what changes are made once you add Office 365 services to your project.
  • With the latest tooling update, you can specify Redirect URIs directly in the tooling for your web application project, making it easy to add the URL of your testing site (though you should still create a separate AAD entry for pushing the app to production).
