To overcome the session timeout issues inherit to the SharePoint Online Provider-hosted app model, the Prime 365 app parts rely on cookies. These cookies are used by our app parts to communicate between SharePoint Online and the Azure environment on which they are hosted. The default security settings in IE for Windows 8/Windows Server 2008 block these cookies. Below are instructions on how to allow these cookies and ensure your Prime 365 app parts function as desired.
- Click on the settings icon in IE and then select Internet options.
- Select the Privacy tab in the Internet Options window and then click the Sites button.
- Add the following two sites to the Per Site Privacy Actions screen and Allow cookies from them (these are the Prime 365 Azure hosts):
- When finished, click the OK button on the Per Site Privacy Actions window and then click the OK button on the Internet Options screen to save these new settings.
Congratulations, you've successfully configured your browsers cookies to ensure you get the most out of your Prime 365 app parts!
