  1. Publish Throttling limit for Sharepoint

    There are throttling limits given for outlook and teams at the link https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/graph/throttling.
    What is the limit after which the throttling starts for graph API calls for SharePoint.

    SharePoint decided not to publish their throttling limits see the following abstract: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/dev/general-development/how-to-avoid-getting-throttled-or-blocked-in-sharepoint-online#why-cant-you-just-tell-me-the-exact-throttling-limits.

    It will be really useful to get the limits for SharePoint too.

  2. Add to MS Graph API work with SharePoint permissions

    With SharePoint Online REST API we can work with role assignments and role definitions. So we want to do the same things with MS Graph API.

  4. Add /Lists/{List ID}/items/{item ID}/permissions endpoint

    Allow us to manage permissions on ListItems in the same way we can manage permissions on /Drives/{Drive ID}/items/{item ID}/permissions.

    Use case: List contains potentially sensitive items that we want to restrict to users based on the contents of a people picker column (not necessarily the creator/modifier).

  6. /me/followedsites returns deleted sites

    calling /beta/me/followedsites will return sites that no longer exist.

    For example:
    1. I created a subsite x.sharepoint.com/sites/hello/there
    2. I followed the sub site x.sharepoint.com/sites/hello/there
    3. I deleted the subsite from x.sharepoint.com/sites/hello
    4 calling /beta/me/followedsites returns this deleted site in the list

  7. sharepoint listitem $filter support on fields

    It is currently impossible to filter list items by their title or any other field via the Graph API.
    Adding support for list items filtering on fields would help query list items.
    Example of query
    https://graph.microsoft.com/v1.0/sites/{siteId}/lists/{listId}/items/?$expand=fields($filter= Title eq 'value')

  8. Enable updating Site Pages via Graph API

    The current beta version of the Graph API for SharePoint Sites, specifically the Page objects, supports GET (read), POST (create), and DELETE (delete) operations, but does not appear to have any support for PUT (update) of an existing Page.

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/graph/api/resources/sitepage?view=graph-rest-beta

    This means that in order to make an update to a page via API, the only option is to GET the current page, update as needed in our application, DELETE the current page, and then POST to create a completely new page (losing all history, original creation date, etc.) with the same name/title... which also results in a new object…

  10. Allow Editor to be Set on List Items

    It's common to need to edit a list item via an app on behalf of a user without wanting to grant that specific user access to the list item itself. With CSOM or the SharePoint REST API, we could simply set the "Editor" column during the edit, and the Modified By information would show as intended in the version history. Please allow this to be done via the Graph API as well.

  12. Retrieve Likes and Comments from a Sharepoint Page

    There is no way to retrieve this info without scraping the actual web page. If there is, could you please point me in the right direction. This should also be added to the Management Activity API so all content (edits/deletes) can be capture for compliance reasons.

  13. Documentation - Navigate to a drive on SharePoint

    The current documentation for Microsoft Graph does not cover how to navigate to a drive on a SharePoint site and pull files from it. It appears that the documentation assumes the user has an understanding of SharePoint's structure.

    The documentation for Microsoft Graph should include how to navigate to a drive on a SharePoint site and pull files from it.

  14. Send a delta link item when public links are created or deleted for Sharepoint Drives

    For OneDrive drives, when a public link is added to an item, the delta link will return that item. This doesn't happen for Sharepoint drives (document libraries). For consistency the behavior should be the same.

  15. Get Permission call to return detail about parent object sharing inheritance in inheritedFrom object, currently it is empty.

    I have a file inside a folder tree. I have a flexi link on top folder giving write access to all the file. While inspecting the file I fetched all the permissions on that file. by using below API call,
    GET /sites/{siteId}/drive/items/{itemId}/permissions

    This API call always returns all the permissions including the inherited permissions also. But it doesn't give the detail about on which parent object the inherited sharing exists.

    If we want to remove that permission, we need to find the parent folder on which the sharing exists, then use below API call to remove the permission.
    DELETE /sites/{site-id}/drive/items/{item-id}/permissions/{perm-id}

  17. Site sharing settings

    Add support for SPO "Site sharing settings".

    E.g. when we create a new Group or Team, we want to set the site sharing permissions to "Only site owners can share files,folders, and the site" and we want to disable the "access requests" to the new group/team.

  19. Allow read/write access to deleted data in OneDrive and SharePoint Online

    There is no possibility to access deleted data on OneDrive and SharePoint Online. As far as I know for now we can only restore a file from Recycle bin with beta API. I want to get direct access (create/read/update/delete) to files from Recycle bin in OneDrive and SharePoint Online (drives functionality). We want something similar as it done in Exchange Online/

  20. SharePoint Graph API add "list all sites access for a user"

    Since suppressing a guest user from the Azure AD won't suppress it from all the sites where he has permissions/shared documents we must identify those sites.

    We need to know all the sites on the tenant where the user has shared access to some child elements.

    The Sharepoint part of the graph api is really small.
