Create An App Catalog Site In SharePoint Online

In this blog, we will create an app catalog site in SharePoint Online in 3 simple steps. 

What is App catalog?

  1. As a SharePoint or global admin in Microsoft 365, you can create an App Catalog site to make internally developed custom apps (say SPFx) available for users to install when they browse apps under the From Your Organization filter on the Site Contents page.
  2. The App Catalog is a site with the purpose of making apps (internally developed or third-party) available for users to install.

Steps to Create an App Catalog Site

Step 1 Go to your SharePoint Admin Center –> On the left navigation select More Features –> Scroll down and select Open under App,

Remove an app from the App Catalog

 If you no longer want a specific app to be available for users to install, you can remove it from the App Catalog. Any instances of the app that have already been added to sites by users will remain, but the app will no longer be available for users to add to additional sites.

  1. On the App Catalog site, select the Apps for SharePoint list.
  2. Right-click the app that you want to remove, and select Delete.
  3. In the dialog, to confirm that you want to send the item to the site Recycle Bin, select OK.
