  2. properteries returned from credentialuserregistrationdetails takes about 24 hours to reflect changes

    When a users registration status changes or displayName of the user changes, these changes take about 24 hours to be reflected when making a call to...
    GET /reports/credentialUserRegistrationDetails

    Can we please improve the change frequency to a much more reasonable time. Sooner the better of course.

  3. When querying the users/delta endpoint, give devs the ability to filter on accountEnabled field and a timestamp of the event

    Maybe I haven't been looking in the right spot but trying to figure out when users are set to inactive through the API hasn't yielded much results. If I filter by the id of a user I can see whether or not they are inactive but without knowing the user beforehand that would be difficult. I think being able to get a list of all users that were set to inactive on a certain date would be useful.

  5. Add more User properties to the User.ReadBasic.All permissions

    I believe the inequality between User.ReadBasic.All and User.Read.All is too large.

    For example I would like to simply read a users City, Country or department, however, these properties are tied to the User.Read.All permission which contains many more properties which IT departments are hesitant to give as a permission.

    I would therefore like to suggest that the following properties (or an sub-set of them) be added to the basic properties.

    city
    companyName
    country
    department
    imAddress
    postalCode
    state
    streetAddress
    photo

  7. Restrict graph explorer to not allow one user in an organization to view another user's extensions.

    I don't think it's a good idea for anyone in an organization to be able to view other people's open extensions. Some organizations use these extensions to store some sensitive user data.

  8. Retrieve custom properties of user profile in Sharepoint via Users API

    When editing my profile on my company Sharepoint, I see that there is the section "Custom properties" where I can specify Division, Report To, My Bio.

    These information is then shown in the User profile view in MS Delve.

    I would like to extract these information, using the Graph API on .NET.
    I have taken a look at the documentation of Users API in v1.0 and beta, but there is no mention of custom properties.
    I have also looked the new Profile API (Preview) but again there is no mention either.

  9. More performant workflow to get users photo from HTML <img src="..."> tag

    Background:
    To get user photo through the existing API requires setting auth header in ajax, fetching the photo, converting it to data uri through blob, and finally display it in HTML. The API seems to be optimized for backend and is lacking developer ergonomics for the frontend.

    Problem:
    The client suffers poor performance when there are many user photos to be displayed on the UI because creating data uri is an expensive operation. Also the configuration of request header and the pipeline to render HTML adds additional complexity. The problem is likely to occur as we are building more and…

  10. User Query filter by OnPremisesExtensionAttributes.ExtensionAttribute

    Allow User query filtering by one of the 15 extension attributes found in the User.OnPremisesExtensionAttributes collection.
    - add allow the user collection to be ordered by an attribute as well (indexed)
    We need to be able to store a generated login name for a B2B guest user in say ExtensionAttribute5 to handle legacy application SSO operations.

    (Use Case) It would be nice to query Users on OnPremisesExtensionAttributes .ExtensionAttribute5 eq 'targetValue' without iterating through thousands of users. This would let us determine whether or not the generated name was unique in our domain. (i.e. used before)

  11. Add Application Authentication for getPresencesByUserId endpoint.

    I understand the requirement for user only permissions against /user/{x}/presence but given getPresencesByUserId would run with an admin level permission Presence.Read.All it would be good to run it as a service application (with Application rather than delegated permissions).

  12. have one call for everything needed to fill a office-ui-fabric-react Persona control

    Combine /v1.0/users/{userID}/photo/$value and /beta/users/{userID}/presence so it will be easy to show a user's presence and picture in an office-ui-fabric-react Persona control in a web part or other developed component.
    A way to get an array of Persona for an array of user IDs will be welcome too.

  13. Leave date for Azure AD users

    Hello,
    Currently, the Graph API support to update user objects with "hireDate", would be great to add value "Leave date".
    So can set when person should leave, then we could operate with Dynamic groups for access blocking, scripting, etc.

    Hi,
    filtering on mobilePhone is tricky because it is a “free-text” field, and there is no format guarantee.
    It can start with the country code, it may not.
    It can be separated by parenthesis, hyphens or dots, or not. Totally depends on the user input.

    However, this functionality is currently beta, thanks to the new advanced query capabilities for Directory Objects (see announcement blog post https://aka.ms/CountFilterMSGraphAAD )

    Here is the query you can try today by setting:
    1) Beta Endpoint
    2) ConsistencyLevel = eventual header
    3) $count=true parameter

    Example: find all users with mobilePhone starting with “+1” (note: + character is urlencoded)

    https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/graph/graph-explorer?request=users?$select=id,displayName,mobilePhone%26$filter=startswith(mobilePhone,'%252B1')%26$count=true&method=GET&version=beta&GraphUrl=https://graph.microsoft.com&requestBody=&headers=W3sibmFtZSI6IkNvbnNpc3RlbmN5TGV2ZWwiLCJ2YWx1ZSI6ImV2ZW50dWFsIn1d

  15. Create REST APIs to enable important Attribute Updates

    Graph API s are not supporting all the attribute updates in MS team. Though Powershell supports all these fields, its showing a low performance. Few of the Attributes which are not supported by Graph API are listed below: OnPremLineURI, HostedVoiceMail, TargetServerIfMoving, EnterpriseVoiceEnabled, VoiceRoutingPolicy, Department

  16. Make a WORKING example in ASP.NET Core 3.1 Razor pages

    I've been trying to make this @#$%@ work for a week now - to make a web app where user authenticates with Azure AD and then this app invokes Graph API to create Schema Extension for User type! I read all the possible docs, but NOTHING helps. I get all kind of errors but it never works!

  17. Update Sharepoint profile photo when Office 365 photo is updated

    At present it is possible to update a users Office 365 profile photo fairly simply using the Graph API and a short bit of PowerShell.

    However, when the photo changes it does not automatically feed through to Sharepoint Online. There is seemingly some unknown set of criteria for this to happen, such as making a user login to Sharepoint directly, which is not something our user base ever does.

    I have been getting around this by running scripts that make use of the CSOM libraries to generate and upload the required xThumb images but it would be much nicer if…

  18. Include actual URL in Insights

    Currently Graph insights/used includes in "resourceReference" only the webUrl to the file. This is, for office Documents usually a link to a browser based view.

    This is not very useful if you need the actual file url. For other files, eg html files, it points to the display-form in sharepoint, and not the actual file, eg
    https://postat-my.sharepoint.com/personal/u11q12ppostat/Documents/Forms/DispForm.aspx?ID=3256

    Also, for some reason, DocumentSets are included in the "used" results also.

    So i would suggest to also add the actual url to the file to the resourceReference (additionally to a webview, as you do not always use graph from inside…

  19. Get the entire manager hierarchy

    For some projects, authorization depends on skip manager, or double skip manager. Currently, we can only get manager one level above. Our use case: given user, get upper hierarchy of supervisors/managers.

  20. Allow Additional Operators for users and groups

    I would very much like to be able to use additional operators such as ne and notin with the users API, so that a more inclusive method of searching could be used.

    Find all users except those with a department of "Hidden" for example.
