Sprocket 365 consists of a client layer, which is implemented by two Microsoft SharePoint Framework Apps. The client layer reads data from various external systems, such as Microsoft Graph or SharePoint Search and displays this data in web parts within a SharePoint site.
Sprocket 365 provides a number of web parts and customisers for SharePoint Modern. This article details the technical architecture of Sprocket and the services in which is depends on.
Sprocket 365 is built with Microsoft SharePoint Framework (SPFx), which is the recommended way and technology issued by Microsoft for implementing custom solutions for the Microsoft 365 platform.
The solution consists of two SPFx app packages Sproket 365 and Sproket Library, which have to be deployed into the customer’s SharePoint Online App Catalog. Once deployed to the App Catalog, the app packages can be installed as Apps on the desired SharePoint sites. Refer to our installation page for more information.
When deploying the Sprocket 365, a set of permission requests are created that need to approved in the “API Management” section in the SharePoint Admin Center.
Be aware the you might not need all permissions, if you don’t need the functionality that requires them. Also note, that everything is executed under the context of the logged in user. That means users will only be able to load data, they are have permission to.
The below list are the Microsoft Graph permissions that are needed for all of Sproket’s web parts to function correctly. For more information on Microsoft Graph and what these permissions request mean please refer to Microsoft Graph permissions reference article.
