How to save my Add-in settings

Hi all.

I'm new to this Forum.

 

Is there API to save Add-in settings?
I'd like to save OAuth token securely to call external API in Add-in.

 

Regards.

Hello,

 

There was no API to help save addin setting directly right away. 

 

However you would be able to save addin-specific data to disk files by language-specific(e.g. C++/Python) methods. For Javascript, we provide some utilities to help read/write disk files. Please refer to the following topic.

Thank you for your response. I see. I hope you will support  saving our setting and making our preference pages.

Hello,

 

It is a good idea to make addin-specific preference pages by API. I would like to recommend you create an idea in our idea station. Our product managers will review those ideas regularly and other customers will be able to vote for your idea as well.

PLEASE make an idea station request for API to create preferences pages for Addins - this is really important.  (IdeaStation requests should start with you folks)

 

Then please post link to the ideastation request here.
