  1. Add a "My Groups - Read/Write" Permission (that does not require Admin Consent)

    It should not be necessary to require an admin consent to do Group read write operations through the graph API. There should be a permission for My Groups.

    The work has started, but there is no target date yet due to early investigations. This will work first on Microsoft Teams, then we will target Office 365 Groups. ^JT

  2. 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?

  3. Enable $filter on group members

    It's very important to be able to filter members of a group, for example to search for employees within an organization by name (e.g. 'startsWith').

  4. Support $count for group members and owners

    Currently $count is not supported on directoryObjects like users and groups. Although it would be great to know how much members / owners are in a group. The only way right now is via querying the members or owners endpoint of the group and checking the array length. Depending on the number of members, this could lead to multiple calls.

    It would be great that the $count parameter would be supported so that only one call is required.

  5. 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).

  6. App Authentication to retrieve conversation messages for unified groups

    We need the App Authentication model to be able to retrieve conversations for unified groups. This isn't a user specific call so I'm unsure why it's not currently possible?

    Currently this is in our backlog and hasn’t been prioritized against other features we are working on right now. ^JT

  7. Add support to invite user to Team and Group simultaneously/instantaneously w/welcome-mail

    Today, when adding an invited user (guest) to a team, you have to add them to the group and wait up to 24 hours before the "team module" picks up the change. And no welcome mail i sent to the invited user.

    Would be great if Graph exposed the same method as the invite in the GUI uses, which add the user to the group and team simultaneously/instantaneously and sends a welcome email to the user.

    Method in question (from GUI)
    PUT https://teams.microsoft.com/emea/beta/teams/($channelId)/bulkUpdateRoledMembers?allowBotsInChannel=true
    Where you send in userid's w/roles and groupid

  8. Allow filter on target of a navigation collection for users and groups

    Enable filtering and casting on the target for a navigation collection. For example "get the users that are members of a group, even though the group contains users, groups and service principals. Additionally allow me to do things like find all the members of this group that are in "sales" department.

  9. Group Members@delta properties enrichment

    Hi,

    This request is related to https://microsoftgraph.uservoice.com/forums/920506-microsoft-graph-feature-requests/suggestions/36578248-add-group-members-owners-delta-link, unfortunately it has been closed with no resolution.

    The first option you suggested on that request:
    https://graph.microsoft.com/v1.0/groups/delta?$select=id&$expand=members

    includes the members array, exposing for each member ONLY the id, so, we don't know if every single member is an owner, a member, not even his userPrincipalName or displayName.
    This way we are REQUIRED to get members by invoking an api for each single group, this way the delta link power is completely useless.

    The sample response is:
    "id": "1e770bc2-3c5f-487f-871f-16fbdf1c8ed8",
    "members@delta": [
    {

    "@odata.type": "#microsoft.graph.user",
    
    "id": "8b209ac8-08ff-4ef1-896d-3b9fde0bbf04"

    }

    The second option you suggested:
    https://graph.microsoft.com/v1.0/groups/delta?$select=id&$expand=members

  10. List members from Exchange Dynamic Distribution Groups

    I would like to do a request like "/groups/{id}/members" in order to get all the members from a particular Exchange Dynamic Distribution Group.

    Also, I would like to have a way to find the ID of an Exchange Dynamic Distribution Group (for example, a request to "/groups/" does not return any group of this type).

  12. Enable updates to 'autoSubscribeNewMembers' when using application permissions

    Currently, updating 'autoSubscribeNewMembers' is only allowed through delegated permissions. Our dynamic group administration and management tool works through application permissions, so it would be useful to have the capability of enabling auto subscription.

  13. Add delta query support for Group Conversations/Threads/Posts

    There is currently no delta query support for Group Conversations/Threads/Posts. The only way to track changes in Office 365 Group Conversations via the Graph API, is to fetch all the Posts that has ever been sent. This does not scale well. Therefore, it would be nice if it was possible to track changes in Posts using the delta query functionality which is available for messages.

  15. Handle group owners the same as group members over all api's

    Nowadays it's needed to make a group owner also a group member in at least the following cases:
    - List group plans
    - Create group plan

    When you're provisioning groups via code, a very common provisioning scenario, the 'creator' is only added as owner to the group and not as a member. Via the UI you first have to add someone as a member before 'promoting' him/her to an owner. In that case the user will be both owner and member.

    We cannot see the functional need to also add an owner as a member, so we guess it's a…

  16. Add support to Groups and Photos APIs to Hybrid Deployments

    The current documentation states that "[o]nly v1.0 of the Mail, Calendar and Contacts API are available for mailboxes in hybrid deployments".

    In order to create real-world solutions using Graph API in Hybrid deployments, the Groups and Photos support (at the very minimum) would be of great benefit. This would enable creation of solutions that drive consumption of other workloads than pure email (such as SharePoint, Yammer, Teams, PowerBI, Stream etc).

    Could you provide more information on the scenarios where this would be used? Office 365 groups are currently mastered in the cloud, and although they can be sync’d to on-premises, the API calls go directly to cloud instances of content.

  17. Issue: getOffice365GroupsActivityDetail missing GroupGuid and reporting misleading information.

    Issue: getOffice365GroupsActivityDetail missing GroupGuid and reporting misleading information.

    This happens even in the portal. If there are multiple groups with same Display Name, it's impossible to discern between them. Can you please add Group Guid in Graph Reporting API?

  18. Provide a way to identify permission object for group owners vs group members

    Currently listing all permission on a driveitem https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/graph/docs/api-reference/v1.0/api/driveitemlistpermissions returns a collection of Permission https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/graph/docs/api-reference/v1.0/resources/permission.

    where three default users are owners, members and visitors. It is very difficult to identify which user is member or owner as these are presented as displayName only and it is translated name in tenants localization setting,

    We need a canonical way to identify permission object's grantee whether grantee is owner or member

    Please provide more info on whether the ideal use case is to identify permissions for the entire Group or if they are specifically focused on the Drive/Folders. What is the use case? ^JT

  19. Enable choosing the e-mail domain on Office 365 Groups creation

    When creating an Office 365 Group it would be useful to be able to set the primary domain in the e-mail address on creation if the tenant has multiple domains, and you don't want the default to be used.

  20. Get groups photos using app-only permissions

    Currently group's photo may be retrieved only using delegated permissions (/v1.0/groups/{id}/photo/$value). It would be much easier if this endpoint would also work with app-only permissions.
