  1. Allow creating itemAttachments with nested attachments via the Graph API

    Suppose my Inbox has 'Email 1', which has attachments on it.
    Outlook allows me to attach 'Email 1' to 'Email 2' as an itemAttachment. I can even attach 'Email 2' to 'Email 3' to get another level of nesting.

    The Graph API allows me to create itemAttachments but appears to strip out nested attachments.

    For example, the following request creates an itemAttachment but strips out the nested attachments (verified via API and Outlook client)

    POST https://graph.microsoft.com/beta/me/messages/{some-msg-id}/attachments
    Content-type: application/json
    Content-length: 200

    {
    "@odata.type": "#microsoft.graph.itemAttachment",
    "name": "Hello world",
    "item": {

    "@odata.type": "microsoft.graph.message",
    
    "subject": "foobar",
    "body": {
    "contentType": "HTML",
    "content": "lorem ipsum"
    },

  2. Allow cancelling calendar events via API

    I need to cancel existing events via API.

    The current stable version of Graph API does not allow to cancel any existing event, and you cannot update the isCancelled property, so the only option is to delete the event.

    The cancel method is in the API beta version, but is seems it takes YEARS for the beta versions to be published as stable.

  3. Permissions Gap: "Send" as draft

    We have a service application that generates and sends email within an organization on behalf of users.

    It has Mail.Send. It does NOT have Mail.ReadWrite on purpose. This allows us to send email and save a copy into their sent folder, but does not allow us to arbitrarily read the user's email (and other potentially problematic/dangerous access). This is inline with the principle of least privilege.

    We want to give the users the option of reviewing the generated email from within Outlook and sending it only after review. Outlook already supports this via Drafts.

    Unfortunately you only have two permission…

  5. Read group calendar using application permission mode

    Hello Microsoft team! We are attempting to use application permissions to display contents of a group calendar but currently that is not supported. We'd love to be able to interact with group calendars (and other aspects of groups) using application permissions.

  6. Allow more control over fields returned in the Calendar API calls

    Allow administrators to filter which fields can be returned per endpoint. Our end client is concerned that even though we are filtering the results on our side we still have access to Calendars.Read and technically have access to read meeting subjects, etc. Is there any way in Office365 or the Graph API that our end client can apply more granular permissions to filter which fields we have access to?

    My particular example is using the CalendarView endpoint to retrieve a users appointments for a specific time period. While calling the endpoint we are passing $select=start,end,showAs. Our end client does not…

  7. 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.

  8. Allow specifying owner even if that is given implicitly by role assignment

    Once I was assigned the "Application Developer" Azure AD role I could no longer issue requests where I set myself as owner of a group when creating it. I consider this to be broken as implicit behavior based on role assignment affect the format of my requests to the Graph API!

    Failing request:
    {
    "displayName": "My group",
    "mailEnabled": false,
    "mailNickname": "undefined",
    "securityEnabled": true,
    "owners@odata.bind": [

    &quot;<a rel="nofollow noreferrer" href="https://graph.microsoft.com/v1.0/users/">https://graph.microsoft.com/v1.0/users/</a>&lt;id of myself&gt;&quot;
    

    ]
    }

    Response:
    {

    &quot;error&quot;: {
    
    &quot;code&quot;: &quot;Request_BadRequest&quot;,
    &quot;message&quot;: &quot;Request contains a property with duplicate values.&quot;,

    &quot;date&quot;: &quot;2019-10-02T13:06:59&quot;
    }
    }

    }

  9. Working with Teams without admin consent

    To make automated tests of MS Teams, you need to use the designated list of Graph API requests.
    But the Graph API requests all require the access type “Group.ReadWrite.All” using admin consent, which is not useful for our customers.
    The proposal would be to add one more access type, for example with the name “Group.ReadWrite”, which will allow the creation of a team, creation of a channel in the team, sending a message to the channel and replying to that message.
    The same user needs to be able to delete the channel and the team previously created.
    This is be…

  10. Implement OData Extension for Data Aggregation Version 4.0

    These aggregate functions would be very useful. For instance grouping messages by conversation id to retrieve a list of the latest message per conversation.

  12. Support Schema Extensions on DriveItems

    Adding schema extensions on a DriveItem resource would allow us to add metadata to a driveitem, and also enable greater integration between OneDrive and external applications by providing the ability to link information between systems.

  13. OfficeLocation should be a writable attribute in a hybrid environment

    In a hybrid environment where the local Active Directory is synced to the cloud, officeLocation should be writable through Graph API and synced back to the on-premise Active Directory. Thus would help us writing better Azure apps.

  14. Extend open extension / schema extension to managedDevice

    I am trying to see how to store additional info into managedDevices that are available inside the Graph API (/deviceManagement/managedDevices/ endpoint). But it seems that it does not work (only a specific set of items including device but not managedDevice ?)

    It can be a great way to enhance the existing intune solution and store in a central place mandatory data like warranty information or additional device specification.

    Thanks for your work on the graph API by the way !

  17. Archival - support shouldSetSpoSiteReadOnlyForMembers setting when using app-only permissions

    When archiving a Team (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/graph/api/team-archive?view=graph-rest-1.0) there is an optional parameter shouldSetSpoSiteReadOnlyForMembers to change all user permissions on the content to read-only. This however does not currently work when using Application permissions.

    This should be supported, possibly requiring the Sites.ReadWrite.All application permission.

    This will allow us to archive a team automatically in a background process in response to certain business requirements eg. time elapsed, team status etc.

  18. Ability to filter users with onPremisesSamAccountName with Microsoft Graph API

    would like to have a filter on the users api of Microsoft Graph API, where I will be able to filter the users based on onPremisesSamAccountName, which is currently not available with Graph API.

    We have the internal employee id to be stored with onPremisesSamAccountName variable which is present in users API of Microsoft Graph. We are trying to filter with onPremisesSamAccountName property to filter based on the internal employee id. Currently we are not able to do that with Graph API but we really need this to be workling or would be happy if we get know any possible…
