  1. Exchange Online Admin API Support

    There is an adequate amount of client side Rest APIs for outlook, but nothing truly available on the admin side. Allowing API calls to create Online Rules and Connectors for example would (hopefully) be less error prone than manually invoking Powershell sessions, especially if rules and connectors need to be created en masse.

  2. Expand the Graph Open Extension limitations

    I'm attempting to use the Graph Extensions for my user data and keep running into limits put in place that I feel are too small. I either hit the 2KB limit per extension, or when I try to break it apart into logical extensions, I hit the error: "Maximum number of extensions values supported per application is 2"

    I can provide our business case if needed.

  3. Support SharePoint multi choice fields when updating list items via Microsoft Graph

    It is currently possible to retrieve the data for a multi choice field from the graph, but it errors when you try to update a multi choice field.

    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

  4. Add a Group relationship to the SharePoint/Sites/Site endpoint in Microsoft Graph

    Currently the SharePoint Sites endpoint in the graph doesn't allow you to navigate to the associated group if it has one (in the case of group enabled team sites). It would be good if you either created a /sites/group relationship or at the very least included GroupId: {guid} in the properties returned when /sites/{site-id} is called so that a second call could be made to the /groups/{id} endpoint.

  5. REST API Support for Creating Directories

    REST API should support the ability to create/suspend/delete whole directories towards Azure AD. This is something that has to me done manually today, not that good for creating automated services with Azure Stack with a lot of directories.

  7. Calculate & expose device's primary user based on usage (user to device affinity)

    In many reporting scenarios it is necessary to map between users/devices. E.g.,
    * VIP Victor is complaining about something, we need a list of the devices he uses
    * I need to report on crashes (or some other device data) by the user's department/building/etc.

    Today we have registeredUsers and registeredOwners, but these can't be used for this purpose because:
    A) They seem to reflect primarily administrative enrollment activity, not end-user-affinity
    B) They are many:many and don't automatically calculate a "primary user" based on logon activity

  8. Support for SharePoint Hyperlink or Picture Field Types

    You can currently retrive the "Hyperlink or Picture" column from SharePoint but you have no clue of the field type.

    It would be cool if the columns call return an additional "hyperlink" property to indicate that its a hyperlink or picture column like

    {

            "columnGroup": "My Columngs",
    
    "description": "",
    "displayName": "Picture",
    "hidden": false,
    "id": "24b7e088-5176-412d-b484-a760a806f5ed",
    "name": "Picture",
    "required": false,
    "hyperlink": {
    url: &#39;<a rel="nofollow noreferrer" href="https://some.url&quot;">https://some.url&quot;</a>,
    description: &#39;Some description&quot;
    }
    }

  9. Provide admin interface to grant the Managed Service Identity's service principal access to common API operations

    I'd like to be able to leverage the same experience that's offered to 'App Registrations' in the portal when granting my MSI's service principal (for example) access to individual operations within the MS Graph api.

  10. Support SharePoint lookup fields when creating list items via Microsoft Graph

    It is currently possible to retrieve this data, but it appears there is no current way of creating a new lookup field via Microsoft Graph. Any attempt at such a call will either return 200 ok, but leave the lookup field blank, or return 400 bad request (or the like).

  11. msgraph ios sdk

    Hi Team,

    I couldn't find a way to get the folders and file in a specific Sharepoint site, or a way to list all available sites using msgraph iOS SDK. Is this available? If it is, could you give me a pointer on how to proceed?

    For now I'm only able to get the content of a user's personal drive and Sharepoint's "default" site.

    Is any possible to get the content of specific site information except default root site using msgraph iOS SDK preview version.

    Regards.
    Ansari

  12. Add permissions Tasks.Read.All or Tasks.ReadWrite.All

    Currently it's not possible to access the tasks of all an organisation members regardless of who is connected to the application. At the moment, you can only access Outlook Tasks using delegated permissions (i.e. on behalf of the current user). You can reach outside their own tasks using the Tasks.Read.Shared scope but again, this only provide additional access to Outlook Tasks that were shared with the current user.

    This would be a great add to the Microsoft Graph API to help Managers to follow the progession of their projects with new permissions like Tasks.Read.All or Tasks.readWrite.All.

  13. Issue with allowExternalSenders property in groups

    I saw that setting allowExternalSenders property through POST/PATCH method is currently not working with v1.0 and beta. Do you plans for making it work any time soon? It is very tedious to set it manually through the UI.

  14. GraphQL API for the Microsoft Graph

    Facebook's GraphQL is the perfect API solution for the Microsoft Graph. I highly encourage you to implement this, since it would improve development for React apps.

  15. 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,…

  16. Expand navigation property of children with a single query

    Impossible to get members of Azure AD group with expanded 'manager' property in one request.
    for example:
    https://graph.windows.net/<tenantid>/directoryObjects/<groupid>/members/?api-version=1.6&$expand=manager

    we gets the following response:
    {"code":"Request_UnsupportedQuery","message":{"lang":"en","value":"An unsupported query was observed. Please ensure you query does not navigate across multiple reference-properties."}

    I suppose reason of such response is clear. and current workaround is the following:
    1) Get group members
    2) for each five members(using OData batch) get manager
    But this way make us do a lot of requests to Azure AD and we expect performance degradation here.

    We develop multi tenant application which access Azure AD of all our customers…

    We are still looking into it! It is due to current platform limitation, and there is some work going on to address this. Again, thank you for the suggestions! Keep the votes coming.

  17. Make Outlook OAuth Sandbox App opensource GitHub

    The Outlook OAuth Sandbox App at https://oauthplay.azurewebsites.net is really great.

    Would like to see the code for this web app to learn how to use the oauth and API for my own applications. There are lot of blogs explaining parts of Oauth and O365 API, but some info is depreciated or not explaining the complete part. Studying this web app would help me a lot to understand the principles and to create better code.

    Would it be possible to share the code for this application on GitHub?

  18. Application permissions to Task API

    While reviewing the O365 Preview API I was wondering what about Task-Management. Currently there are two systems for task management (Exchange and SharePoint). Would be great to see a roadmap for TaskManagement in the O365 Story and of course get an API to easily connect Apps to consume tasks. (No CSOM required just give us REST :D)

    Thank you for sharing! We’re always looking at understanding the feature sets that folks would find value in having as an out of the box feature of the platform. We’ll pass this along to the engineering teams. We’ll also update the blogs here at http://blogs.office.com with any news.

  20. Office 365 SDK Docs - Add Details on How To Authenticate

    This guidance (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/office/office365/howto/common-calendar-tasks-client-library#GetAuthToken) is not as complete as it should be. You likely want to add add additional NuGet packages to make this work. Suggest adding the recommended way to authenticate, such as OWIN / ADAL, to help people get started faster.
