Engage more users with SharePoint Framework Parts and Extensions: Announcing Tenant-Scoped SharePoint Framework Package Deployment
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.

You can plan for tenant-wide deployment with newly available documentation and this overview video.
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.
