  1. Add Microsoft Graph API Health endpoint

    There should be some official endpoint created to programmatically check the health status of the Microsoft Graph API.

    My application makes queries to the Graph API endpoint as part of the app's login process. I have built a health dashboard to notify me when external API's are having trouble. However, there is no specific Microsoft Graph endpoint that provides any status/health indicator for MS Graph API.

    I appreciate your consideration.

  2. Graph API Golang SDK

    Golang is continuously getting good traction among developers in the industry. As of now, the Graph API only have official SDK support for C# and Java. It will be very beneficial to have Golang SDK.

  3. Support streaming notifications for graph

    To fully move away from the outlook.office.com REST interface for email we need a solution to get notifications for client/desktop software (non windows) and browser based software.

    The existing webhook approach does not work well for anything but server to server configurations.

    outlook.office.com provides a streaming notification:

        <a rel="nofollow noreferrer" href="https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/previous-versions/office/office-365-api/api/beta/notify-streaming-rest-operations&quot;&quot;&quot">https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/previous-versions/office/office-365-api/api/beta/notify-streaming-rest-operations&quot;&quot;&quot</a>;
    

    Which meets our requirements

    This is an already acknowledged gap in the Graph API.

    Please implement a solution for clients to get notifications that doesn't require a webhook.

    This is also important to migrate IMAP clients to Graph as a replacement for IMAP IDLE is required.

  4. Allow $filter on showInAddressList for /users and /groups

    I'd love to be able to filter the /users and /groups collection on the showInAddressList property.

    This would allow us to get all users and groups that are to be shown in the addressbook, currently this means retrieving them all and filtering afterwards (but that poses issues with pagination).

    For groups, there is a dependency on this UserVoice: https://microsoftgraph.uservoice.com/forums/920506-microsoft-graph-feature-requests/suggestions/32677822-support-hiddenfromaddresslistsenabled-property-on

    Hi Yannick,
    showInAddressList filter support for User object in now under consideration.
    We will update the status when we will have more info to share.

    PS: The Group object property hideFromAddressLists is from Exchange service (not AAD), and currently doesn’t support filtering.
    I suggest you opening another feedback to track with this other request separately.

  5. Make it possible to manipulate CustomAttributes for organizational Contacts

    Organizational Contacts make it possible to share contacts via Tenant to Tenant. The only decent way to key off source tenant is via adding ExternalDirectoryObjectId to a custom attribute. Please consider adding this to the Graph API. Graph is phenomenal, however, the details really matter when collaborating T2T.

  8. Planner data in Graph Data connect

    One dataset I was missing is the task data from Planner. It would help a lot for enterprise reporting if we could extract the planner data easily for reporting purposes, maybe filtered on O365 group level and of course plan level.

  9. Add a 'drive' data-set to Graph Data Connect

    Current data sets for graph data connect don't include documents, lists, or any data from SharePoint.

    Applying ML for document classification and audit is quite valuable, and it would be helpful if this data set were added. Plain-text content and summary could potentially be extracted from the search database, with HREF reference to the file URL...

  10. Graph - Add "isAdmin: true/false" to /me to identify users I can prompt for Admin consent

    My application can be used in a basic mode without Admin permissions. I would like to prompt Administrators for advanced permissions. Currently I cannot detect who is an Admin without already being granted Directory.Read.All permission by an Admin.

    If the "me" route could identify whether the user is an Admin or not it would allow much more control from our application side, without exposing much information

  11. Ability to Initialize AuthorizationCodeProvider with AccessToken & Refresh Token.

    Right now we can initiliaze AuthorizationCodeProvider with only AuthorizationCode recieved from Ist Leg of oauth2 flow. However in applications, where user authorizes you app once and your app needs to make graph api calls in the background. In this case, persisting Refresh Token in the database is the easiest and then be able to initialize new AuthorizationCodeProvider Instance using these refresh tokens.

  13. http2 support for Microsoft Graph

    Today most OSs and browsers support HTTP2, some of them for almost many years.
    Having the Microsoft Graph support HTTP2 would bring multiple performance benefits:
    - Headers compression
    - Binary streams (as opposed to text)
    - Connection multiplexing (allowing multiple requests to execute on the same port, avoiding multiple tcp/ip dances that take time)
    More details here https://blog.restcase.com/http2-benefits-for-rest-apis/

  14. Supportability for more attributes with MS Graph API

    Please support syncing more attributes (on user create and update) with MS Graph API.

    Here is the wish-list:
    proxyAddresses,
    postOfficeBox,
    pager,
    msExchExtensionCustomAttribute,
    mail,
    ipPhone,
    info,
    extension<AADAppGUID><attribute_name>,
    description,
    countryCode,
    commonName,
    cloudAnchor,
    alias

    Thanks,
    Anna

    Most of these are GA (in v1.0) – proxyAddresses, onPremisesExtensionAttributes (msExchExtensionCustomAttribute), mail, imAddresses (ipPhone), ALL extension_{appId}_{name) properties, onPremisesImmutableId (cloudAnchor), mailNickname (alias).

    A few like PO box, pager, info, description, countryCode, and commonName are under review. In the meantime, as a workaround, you could synchronize these properties/values from on-premises into directory extensions or onPremisesExtensionAttributes.

  16. Microsoft Graph JavaScript / TypeScript SDKs should support fluent APIs

    To engage more developers, the Microsoft Graph JavaScript / TypeScript SDKs should support fluent APIs to have something like this :

    graph.api().me

    Instead of something like this :

    graph.api('/me/people')

  17. Add timestamps to events received via web-hooks

    Please could you add a timestamp showing the time an event was generated. Currently you have the following:

    ```
    {
    "value": [

    {
    
    &quot;subscriptionId&quot;:&quot;&lt;subscription_guid&gt;&quot;,
    &quot;subscriptionExpirationDateTime&quot;:&quot;2016-03-19T22:11:09.952Z&quot;,
    &quot;clientState&quot;:&quot;secretClientValue&quot;,
    &quot;changeType&quot;:&quot;created&quot;,
    &quot;resource&quot;:&quot;users/{user_guid}@&lt;tenant_guid&gt;/messages/{long_id_string}&quot;,
    &quot;resourceData&quot;:
    {
    &quot;@odata.type&quot;:&quot;#Microsoft.Graph.Message&quot;,
    &quot;@odata.id&quot;:&quot;Users/{user_guid}@&lt;tenant_guid&gt;/Messages/{long_id_string}&quot;,
    &quot;@odata.etag&quot;:&quot;W/\&quot;CQAAABYAAADkrWGo7bouTKlsgTZMr9KwAAAUWRHf\&quot;&quot;,
    &quot;id&quot;:&quot;&lt;long_id_string&gt;&quot;
    }
    }

    ]
    }
    ```

    But adding a timestamp would help us order events accurately. Something like..

    "createdAt" : "2016-03-19T22:11:09.952Z"

    would be very helpful! Thanks.

  18. Add user.readBasic.all permission as an app permission in Graph

    Azure AD graph has delegated permissions for user.readBasic.all which restricts the information that a 3rd party accessing this api can capture from our tenancy directory. We have a 3rd party app that accesses the Azure directory to retrieve basic data to set up accounts in its user directory and we need to restrict this to the basic data due to the security risk. We cannot rely on the 3rd party just doing the right thing all the time.

    I need a way to set the app to allow app permissions (not delegated as the read occurs every 4 hours without…

  19. Add support for descending sort order to OneDrive for Business API

    I want to retrieve a list of OneDrive files sorted by created date (descending), i.e. newest first. This can be achieved with a OneDrive personal account by appending $orderby=createdDateTime desc to the graph query, but this returns an error for a business account.

    Thank you for your feedback! We are investigating the technical requirements to see if we can move this to the backlog. We will post updates here as a decision is made. More votes would help prioritize this feature. -EY

  20. Add support for webhook at site collection level inclusive of events in sub sites etc.

    Customer want Office 365 SharePoint Online to support webhook so it can push events to 3rd party security vendors to perform real-time inspection on the files go to SharePoint online.

    The subscription for SharePoint can only be hooked to drive level. We need to create subscription for every drive in every site or subsite. This is a bad solution for our production.

    Early we use Event Receiver in CSOM API. We can add event receiver to the site collection and all the sites/sub-sites in this site collection will be hooked. We can get the file events and protect the user’s…
