OWACurrent en:Server Environment
Cryptshare for OWA requires 2 server components:
- An Exchange Online Server with active user accounts.
- The Cryptshare Server with a valid Cryptshare for OWA license installed.
In order for users to be presented with the Cryptshare for OWA add-in button within Outlook on the web, an Exchange Online Server offering the ability to sideload an add-in manifest.xml file is required. The manifest.xml file essentially acts as a bridge between Outlook on the web and the actual add-in location – it defines the button label and the web server location the button should point to.
The Cryptshare Server hosts all add-in resources and provides server-side administration for specific aspects of the add-in. These are:
- Uploading/Installing add-in resources
- CORS administration

In order to see if your Cryptshare Server is capable of hosting Cryptshare for OWA add-ins, please take a look at the compatibility table in the chapter System Requirements.
As with all Cryptshare add on Products, Cryptshare for OWA also requires a valid license. You can check your license by visiting the license section of the Cryptshare Server administration interface.
If you do not see a row for Cryptshare for OWA, please get in contact with your Cryptshare sales representative in order to get a new license. Customers owning a Cryptshare Enterprise License or the Cryptshare Business Pack can request a new license at no additional cost.
Microsoft Exchange/Exchange Online
Cryptshare for OWA can be used together with Exchange Online. Microsoft Exchange on-premise is not supported. Please check out Cryptshare for Outlook if you are interested in a Cryptshare Integration for on-premise products.
