  2. Provide a Teams API To send direct messages to users

    Currently, the only way to send messages is to post a message on a channel in a team. It would be great if there could be an API to send a direct message to the users. Please let me know if it already exists, because I could not find any such method in the chat object here :

  3. Add manager to list Users graph api

    Currently we allow customer to connect to the Azure AD for listing all people in their AD for an up-to-date personell system.
    If they need to have the hierarchy in our software as well (who is the manager of who) this is near impossible as you have to retrieve the manager object per user.

    Please allow an extra attribute to request the manager information when listing users instead of 'per user' basis.

  4. When I download a message of teams channel, I would like to have access to the inline images.

    I got the html-code, but the URLs of the embedded images are kind of https://eu-api.asm.skype.com.eu.cas.ms/v1/objects/... and I only have access to them when I am connected via the TeamsClient. My Angular App uses the MSAL library.

  5. Send message with a larger than ~3 MB file attachment

    Through Graph, there is NO way to compose or quick send a message having, let's say, a 6 MB PDF brochure. I'm not asking for attachments of hundreds of MB, but the current limitation is a huge bug.
    UploadSessions in the context of Messages could be a solution path to the inherent limitation of embedding base64 file content in a Json.

  7. Education -> User -> Assignments API

    Currently, we can request a student's school or classes. However, it would be more beneficial if we could get a student's assignments.

  8. Support Azure AD B2C local account

    There is currently no easy way to manage Azure AD B2C local account from a .Net Core app.

    Currently the only way to manage B2C local account is with Azure AD Graph API through Microsoft.Azure.ActiveDirectory.GraphClient nuget. But since those projects are deprecated and only maintained for critical issues, they will not be ported to .Net Core.

    If you have an ASP.Net Core WebApp or WebApi you need to use the Microsoft Graph .NET Client Library which support .Net Standard 1.1. But as Microsoft Graph API does not support local account, it is useless if your tenant is an Azure AD…

    This is now in Microsoft Graph beta. Please see the identities property of the user resource https://docs.microsoft.com/graph/api/resources/user?view=graph-rest-beta and the objectIdentity resource type: https://docs.microsoft.com/graph/api/resources/objectidentity?view=graph-rest-beta. You can see an example of creating a user with the identities property here (second example): https://docs.microsoft.com/graph/api/user-post-users?view=graph-rest-beta&tabs=http

    We hope to have this in GA by end of 2019 Q4, but it might roll into 2020 Q1.

  9. Graph API Retrieving Nested Mail Attachments Not Available

    Graph API Retrieving Nested Mail Attachments Not Available

    We are using the Graph API to connect to an account using Java. We are able to make calls to retrieve user details, mail details, headers and attachments, etc… One of our use cases require us to retrieve information related to nested attached emails (e.g. an email in the account has an attached email. This email has an attached email and also some attached files). By using the Graph API, we are able to retrieve information related to the email including attachments https://graph.microsoft.com/v1.0/me/messages/{messageid}/?$expand=attachments. From what’s returned, we are able to…

  10. Support Azure Conditional Access for Microsoft Graph

    A lot of Microsoft products does not work as expected due to the fact the Microsoft Graph does not support Azure Conditional Access. Among the applications I can mention is Microsoft Teams, ToDo, etc. that all rely on the Microsoft Graph and breaks to to limited support or no support for Azure Conditional Access.

    Teams:

  11. Graph - Provide access to ItemAttachment bytes

    In the EWS api we could download an email attachment that is itself an email (say message.eml) as a byte array, untouched. This does not appear to be possible in the Graph API. The itemAttachment is visible using $expand=microsoft.graph.itemattachment/item but only as exploded json and attachments to the itemAttachment itself are not there.

    I work in a Search and Rescue environment (lives are at stake) and from an auditing/quality/completeness perspective I need to know exactly what was attached to the email (the bytes). I think the API needs to be enhanced to provide this. Can I suggest that the api…

  12. Support HiddenFromAddressListsEnabled property on Groups

    If want to hide o365 Group using HiddenFromAddressListsEnabled property from Outlook and discovery, the Graph still returns all "hided" Groups. Could you at least return that property with Groups data so we can hide certain Groups withing our apps?

  15. API to create Teams for Classes

    Add API calls to let developers create Teams for Classes. Also add API calls to allow developers to connect to the "Assignment" tabs - to be able to export averaged grades... etc.

    Also - please clarify what is deprecated and what is relevant in the documentation. It is very difficult to figure out what is still being supported and what is not. (I.e. Microsoft Classroom vs Microsoft Teams for Education).

    I found Office 365 REST API for Schools/Teachers... but I am not finding anything that can access the new framework in teams.

    Please help!

  16. API method for creating a chat thread message reply

    I am in need of an API method which can be used to create a chat thread reply message. The latest beta version of the Microsoft Graph API will allow me to create a new chat thread along with the first message, but I cannot add additional messages or replies.

    The documentation states that this feature will be included in a future release. I'm adding this feature request to express my interest in this planned feature.

    I need this method because I am migrating discussions from another CMS, into Microsoft Teams.

  17. Get all members of a group including nested group members

    Currently in Microsoft Graph, the groups/{id}/members ONLY returns the DIRECT members of the specified group. This is a request for an API that would return all members including nested group members (also known as transitive down closure).

  18. Expose Office API via Swagger.

    OK this is a radical idea from listening to @mkristensen talk about VS.NET tooling and how they are looking at supporting Swagger 2.0 to provide code generation for RESTful APIs in VSNET.

    http://devchat.tv/adventures-in-angular/019-aia-microsoft-tooling-with-mads-kristensen

    I looked up Swagger and their online documentation editor, and browser and here's an example

    http://petstore.swagger.wordnik.com/#!/pet/updatePet

    Which is surprisingly similar to Office 365's

    http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/office/dn600182(v=office.15).aspx

    I think Office 365 documentation on MSDN should still be the primary resource. Any future tie in to API-Sandbox would be awesome.

    But if VSNET starts to support auto-codegen (like the old days with WSDL/Soap Services) from Swagger documentation, then I can also…
