    Thanks

  2. Ability to update the user's email aliases (proxyAddresses attribute).

    https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/azure/ad/graph/api/entity-and-complex-type-reference#user-entity shows that we can GET, POST and PATCH the "otherMails" attribute of a user object. otherMails is described as "A list of additional email addresses for the user", which makes it sound like the user's email aliases. However, if you set this attribute, then look at the user in the Office365 Admin Center or Powershell, you see it's actually the "Alternate Email Address" attribute: i.e. the contact address required for admin accounts. In the Graph API the attribute that lists the email aliases is "proxyAddresses" and this is read-only (i.e. only supports GET). It's been explained to me by…

  3. Change Graph API /me/photo/$value content-type

    Currently if you send a GET request to https://graph.microsoft.com/v1.0/me/photo/$value
    you'll get back the binary data of the image in the body (normally a jpeg), but the response header contains an entry

    content-type: text/plain

    instead of

    content-type: image/jpeg

    So please ensure that the content-type returns the correct type and not just text/plain.

  5. Add a "My Groups - Read/Write" Permission (that does not require Admin Consent)

    It should not be necessary to require an admin consent to do Group read write operations through the graph API. There should be a permission for My Groups.

    The work has started, but there is no target date yet due to early investigations. This will work first on Microsoft Teams, then we will target Office 365 Groups. ^JT

  6. Support current password when changing a user's password

    When you change a user's password using the update user operation you supply a passwordProfile. This profile only allows for the new password. Add a new property to the passwordProfile for the current password and only allow the change if the current password is correct.

  8. Allow update mail attribute for Azure AD User object throught REST API

    Currently we are creating users in Azure AD through Azure AD Graph API (from our Identity Manager Application). Also we assign licenses using the same Rest API. Our users, among other thinks, uses Sharepoint Online and Skype for Bussiness Online. All of our users have his mailbox in an Exchange 2010 (on-premise), so they don't have the Exchange Online Plan. For Skype for Bussiness integration with Outlook, it's needed that the mail attribute on the Azure AD object be the same as the mail address in Outlook. The problem is that this attribute is read only throug rest API. Also,…

    PUT /beta/users/{User ID}/photo/$value

  11. Return a 'Type' with Users so we can tell which ones are resources

    The resources come back with the list of users with no type to identify which is which. They need to be treated differently but it is impossible right now.

  12. Unable to retrieve user Description attribute through Graph API

    We are using Graph API to retrieve the Users from Azure Active Directory Instance which are synced from On-premise Active Directory instance. As part of it, We are able to fetch most of the information from Graph API Except "Description" Attribute. After discussing with Microsoft support team, it is identified as a limitation from the Graph API side. Can you please include this Description field as a member of User Entity Object. We are in need of this for a High profile Customer requirement, please include this at the earliest possible.

  13. Add an O365 REST API endpoint returning a list of pinned "My Apps" of a current user

    When I'm creating an App on Office 365, users can pin them and select them from the "My Apps" menu in the new Office 365 ribbon.

    I would like to recreate this menu/whole ribbon in my app (desktop or web, whatever), to bring a consistent experience to my end users. By this, my users could easly switch between O365 Apps and my app.

    I'm inspired by TechEd Europe and all the O365 sessions. This is what imho is missing and is very important atm.

    Something like:
    dev.office.com/me/apps/pinned

  14. Allow to configure and extend the mapping of user profile attributes between the Azure AD and the SharePoint Online

    Currently only a minimal set of AAD attributes is synchronized to SharePoint Online UPA (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh147510.aspx#section1). It should be possible to change and extend the list of properties that are synced and also allow the writeback of user property values from SPO to AAD.

  16. Update Limitation for update/change reset password in full detail.

    I suggest adding in https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/graph/docs/concepts/permissions_reference
    in users permissions section this is needed in that given permission not working properly when reset password on behalf of login user.
    need to have some line that says "this is not currently possible for reset password" like this
    This can help end users to have possibilities regarding the Graph API in manner of limitation using Graph API.

  17. URL field to Active directory groups and users

    Currently it seems that the active directory group and user models do not contain URL fields?
    We are for example using Teams channels for communication. It would be nice to configure these in Azure through either groups or users.

  18. Add the ability to set and get the Precense of a users.

    To be able to have third party applications handling the precense of a user. We also need as in skype the ability to add things like "In Office at Orlando" that you could with Skype for business makning it possible to add vital infromation that all users should be able to see.

    This will make it possible to integrate more advanced call logic that can see if the user is able to handle messages and calls.

  19. Enable combining filter and orderBy on users endpoint

    I want to show my customers a list of users ordered by their name and all disabled users or guest users in AD should be filtered out.

    You can't do this kind of requests with the users endpoint which is quite bad if you want to create an app for a global company.

    So please enable the combination to filter and order users so that we can create great apps using the graph api.
