Issue, if we continue to use Classic Mode in SharePoint 2013.

Issue, if we continue to use Classic Mode in SharePoint 2013.

Question: I am getting this query from some of the SharePoint community people that what is the issue if we use classic mode authentication only In SharePoint 2013,why not we use classic if it supports in SharePoint 2013.

Answer: I am trying to explain the answer as I know and per my experience. Please provide if anything that I missed.

As we all know that the default authentication in SharePoint 2013 is claims mode only. There is no Classic authentication on SharePoint 2013 by Default, If we want to use the classic we can use but we should keep in mind that the below functionalities will not work with Classic in SharePoint 2013.

1.    Office Web Apps services(OWA)
2.    SharePoint Apps like S2S
3.    Hybrid feature of SharePoint.

Please check the link below that shows on how to change the authentication from classic to claims.


I hope the above information will help you to resolve the issue, in case of any queries/questions regarding the above mentioned information then please let me know. I would be more than happy to help you as well as resolves your issues, Thank you.
