Claims and Classic Webapplications

    Question

  • Hello,

    We have multiple web applications currently using classic authentication on SP 2010. We are in process of upgrading to SP 2013 with Claims based authentication.

    My client would like all the web applications to authenticate on claims except for 1 web application. There is a third party application connected to that web application that uses classic authentication and it does not work with claims authentication. 

    Can we have both classic and claims based web applications in SP 2013? If yes, I would like to know what will be the issues that I might come across.

    Thanks

  • Yes, you can. The Classic Web App will not be able to use Workflow Manager, Office Web Apps/Online Server, Exchange Task Sync/Picture Sync, SharePoint Addins, or any other feature which requires an OAuth token.

  • Yes you can but you'll leave ALL new SP2013 features. Remember that in SP2013 to create a web application with Classic Auth you must to use a powershell script because by default any web application created using GUI will be Claim Auth only.
