Automating SharePoint App Packages using PowerShell


21 April, 2016

When you distribute an app through Visual Studio, you set the Client ID and redirect URL and this is then written inside the .app file. This file is in fact a .zip file and is then uploaded to the corporate app catalog. However, I wanted to automate this from my build server and/or for installation in different environments.

Helper Methods First, I need a global window to work with as I do not want to reopen IE for everything I do.
