  1. Support @mention when posting new MS Teams messages.

    Support @mention data when posting new chat messages using the Microsoft Graph API. The Microsoft Teams user interface allows for this, but the Microsoft Graph API endpoints remove @mention metadata and markup from new messages. We observed this using the POST /teams/{id}/channels/{id}/chatthreads endpoint, but it might affect other endpoints also.

    The same functionality should be added to the endpoint for replying to threads once it is developed.

  3. Allow '/drive' to the end of a call to get Team Channel drive information

    The call to get a Team Channel information <a rel="nofollow noreferrer" href="https://graph.microsoft.com/beta/teams/{team-id}/channels/{channel-id}">https://graph.microsoft.com/beta/teams/{team-id}/channels/{channel-id}</a> gives us no reference to access the channel files.
    I propose allowing /drive to be added to the end to access the location in SharePoint

    This work is on the backlog, it is work that currently isn’t scheduled. This will be something that the dev work is starting soon at which point will update the feature here.

  4. consistent retry-after information accross different workloads

    Currently OneDrive, Outlook, and AAD Workloads under the Graph send a retry-after header on 429 and/or 503.
    However the documentation doesn't say which workloads support it https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/graph/docs/concepts/throttling and the other workloads don't support it.
    It'd make it easier if that was supported across the board to have a single way to handle those kind of issues.
    Same remark for the rate-limit headers
    related issues: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/47146598/not-receiving-retry-after-headers-from-ms-graph-api

    under review  ·  Peter Ciszewski responded

    Today, all workloads are supposed to return 429 with a retry-after. We have been working hard to unify this across the API surface.
    We are reviewing if 503 should also be consistently used to represent cases when throttling occurs due to service state, as opposed to the specific app/user reaching their own individual limits.

  5. Enable B2B guest account access to SharePoint Graph calls

    When I make the following graph call:

    https://graph.microsoft.com/v1.0/me

    As an account authenticated against a tenant I'm a guest in, I get the user details for that target tenant.

    The account has access to a SharePoint site collection via the same B2B identity. When I make the following sites call:

    https://graph.microsoft.com/v1.0/sites/tenant.sharepoint.com,xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx,yyyyyyyy-yyyy-yyyy-yyyy-yyyyyyyyyyyy

    where the two guids reference the site the account has access to, I'd like to see the same data returned as if I'd made the graph call from an acount homed in the site's tenant.

  6. 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.

  8. 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,…

  9. Allow updating any users Photo with User.ReadWrite.All scope

    Currently even if you have the User.ReadWrite.All you cant update another users photo via:

    PUT /beta/users/{User ID}/photo/$value

    This would be VERY helpful.

  10. Integrate PowerBI API into Graph API

    PowerBI is a Office 365 service, so please integrate it into the Graph API!!
    We urgently need the integration of Power BI REST API into the Graph API for our customers.
    - The API needs to be accessible as a tenant, not only as a user.
    - We need the ability to programmatically deploy and get datasets, reports and dashboards to specific users and groups.
    - Statistics about usage.
    We need this in the Graph API to combine PowerBI data with the data in Office 365.

  11. support /delta for teamwork chats, channels, and replies

    If you have an application that reads Teams chat and channel messages it is hard to know when you have recent replies to old messages.

    Eg if you have an application that needs to keep abreast of all replies, and,

    If you have a user making a reply to a 6 month-old-message in a channel,

    How does your application find out?

    If it could request channel messages with a /delta then that would work. It would then know which messages to call "get replies" for.

  12. Add Application Permission support for Microsoft Graph API for Intune

    Most or all of the APIs related to Devices and Apps (Intune) only support Delegated Permissions. I see a lot of use-cases where I want to use Application Permissions instead of delegated to simplify and secure my integrations.

  14. 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

    {

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

  15. 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.

    This capability is now available in Microsoft Graph public preview. For an example please see https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/graph/api/group-list-members?view=graph-rest-beta&tabs=http#example-5-use-filter-to-get-group-membership-with-a-display-name-that-starts-with-the-letter-a-including-a-count-of-returned-objects.

    NOTE: you’ll need to use a custom HTTP request header and request $count too, to enable this query capability.

  16. Be able to fetch mails by "conversations" in folders in one request

    Right now you cannot achieve "conversations" view in a mail folder using REST API with one request.

    A workaround can be found here http://stackoverflow.com/questions/41161515/best-way-to-achieve-conversation-view-for-mail-folder-using-outlook-rest-api

    but it is quite slow and not very efficient. Conversations view is the primary view of many mail client but is not achivable (easily) with REST API

  17. Support clearing values in Graph API

    According to this statement http://stackoverflow.com/questions/38249131/how-to-clear-a-field-using-using-microsoft-graph-net-client-library

    it is currently not possible to clear "simple" fields of Objetcts via Microsoft Graph (Group.Description, User.Surname ...)

    Would be great if this was supported.

  18. auditing

    Graph API : How can we Audit mailbox access by Application Permission AD apps that have been granted admin consent. We are logging client-request-id, request-id, timestamp and x-ms-ags-diagnostic from the HTTP response headers of Graph but we have to reach microsoft to get details of these calls.

    For an Azure AD/Office 365 admin, Graph API audit logs should be available in Security and Compliance section.

    his capability is now available in Microsoft Graph public preview. It’s not currently documented.

    NOTE: you’ll need to use a custom HTTP request header ConsistencyLevel: eventual and request $count=true as well, to enable this query capability.

    GET ../beta/users?$filter=onPremisesSamAccountName eq ‘name’&$count=true
    ConsistencyLevel:eventual

    See also related queries in the changelog entry https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/graph/changelog#identity-and-access-azure-ad

  20. Add support for wWWHomepage

    Microsoft Graph cant return the wWWHomePage property that people know from regular AD. We need to access this field in a business case and cant do so, because of the current limitations.

    Please add support for wWWHomePage on the User object!
