You can use new capabilities released today that provide more options for engaging broader audiences with your SharePoint Framework (SPFx) web parts. We are pleased to announce a new tenant-wide SPFx deployment option, which complements the existing site-collection targeted deployment option. Developers can choose to mark their solution as being ready for tenant-scoped deployment which gives tenant administrators the option to make a SPFx solution and its corresponding parts and extensions immediately available across all site collections in a tenant.

With tenant-scoped deployment, declarative provisioning to sites via feature.xml is not available. Therefore, developers should consider whether their solution requires feature.xml-based provisioning. To mark a solution as tenant-wide deployable, developers will also need to mark their packages with the SkipFeatureDeployment flag. This then gives administrators the option of deployment scopes for their SharePoint Framework solutions.
The tenant-scoped deployment option is now generally available across all Office 365 tenants.
With these new tenant-wide deployment options, it’s easier to get SharePoint Framework web parts into the hands of your users. We’d love to hear your feedback on tenant-scoped deployment, as well as your requests for new deployment tools and options you may need. Let us know on the SharePoint TechCommunity.
