Direct login for SharePoint online Team site from web application


  • Hi,

    I have one MVC application. I want to Login into SharePoint online team site from the web application. Probably, stored the username and password in any settings. But i don't want to see the login page of SharePoint. When click the link for team site from web application it must go to home page of the particular team site. From the code behind it will automatically logged in. 

    Could any please suggest the scenario for this case?

    Thanks in advance.

  • It is probably going to be impractical, you'd need to use something like ADFS to federate the user identities. Attempting to store credentials in your MVC application and then authenticate with them is dangerous territory and re-inventing the wheel.

  • Hi Alex,

    Thanks for the update. If i have ADFS means, i can able to authenticate the SharePoint team site from MVC application. Can you please provide any sample for this scenario?

  • Hi,

    We can use SharePointOnlineCredentials for authentication in client-side(C#).
