SharePoint Online No Longer Playing in the Sandbox
microsoft to remove sandbox code service
On July 29, 2016, Microsoft
announced that they were removing the sandbox code service. Marc Anderson’s
blog post is also worth reading.
Who does this affect?
Anyone who has InfoPath forms with code on Office 365. Those forms will stop working in the browser. This includes forms using Qdabra’s qRules. No impact for SharePoint On Premises.
What should you do?
The two simple options are:
- Change the form library to open in the InfoPath Filler client. Users must have InfoPath 2013 installed
- Install Qdabra’s FormsViewer app and configure your form library to use it. FormsViewer has been a migration option for over two years now. FormsViewer replaces InfoPath browser forms. It works on top of existing InfoPath form templates and forms, *and* it includes support for qRules commands without relying on the sandbox. Most migrations will require minimal work to reconfigure the form libraries. Learn more:
Qdabra is here to help you. If you have an active qRules license, simply email
firstname.lastname@example.org and attach your form’s XSN file. We will quickly analyze your form and provide specific steps to take to migrate to FormsViewer. We have many customers using this solution and plan to extend and support it for many years to come. We also provide On Prem installs. The FormsViewer app is free, there is no commitment for low bandwidth users, and we have support plans to ensure you’re covered.
