  1. Exchange Online Admin API Support

    There is an adequate amount of client side Rest APIs for outlook, but nothing truly available on the admin side. Allowing API calls to create Online Rules and Connectors for example would (hopefully) be less error prone than manually invoking Powershell sessions, especially if rules and connectors need to be created en masse.

  2. Application permissions to Task API

    While reviewing the O365 Preview API I was wondering what about Task-Management. Currently there are two systems for task management (Exchange and SharePoint). Would be great to see a roadmap for TaskManagement in the O365 Story and of course get an API to easily connect Apps to consume tasks. (No CSOM required just give us REST :D)

  3. Expand navigation property of children with a single query

    Impossible to get members of Azure AD group with expanded 'manager' property in one request.
    for example:
    https://graph.windows.net/<tenantid>/directoryObjects/<groupid>/members/?api-version=1.6&$expand=manager

    we gets the following response:
    {"code":"Request_UnsupportedQuery","message":{"lang":"en","value":"An unsupported query was observed. Please ensure you query does not navigate across multiple reference-properties."}

    I suppose reason of such response is clear. and current workaround is the following:
    1) Get group members
    2) for each five members(using OData batch) get manager
    But this way make us do a lot of requests to Azure AD and we expect performance degradation here.

    We develop multi tenant application which access Azure AD of all our customers…

    We are still looking into it! It is due to current platform limitation, and there is some work going on to address this. Again, thank you for the suggestions! Keep the votes coming.

  4. GraphQL API for the Microsoft Graph

    Facebook's GraphQL is the perfect API solution for the Microsoft Graph. I highly encourage you to implement this, since it would improve development for React apps.

    Thanks for your feedback! We are doing some investigation into GraphQL. We’ll keep you posted.

    Thanks!

  5. Add Microsoft Graph API Health endpoint

    There should be some official endpoint created to programmatically check the health status of the Microsoft Graph API.

    My application makes queries to the Graph API endpoint as part of the app's login process. I have built a health dashboard to notify me when external API's are having trouble. However, there is no specific Microsoft Graph endpoint that provides any status/health indicator for MS Graph API.

    I appreciate your consideration.

  7. Add permissions Tasks.Read.All or Tasks.ReadWrite.All

    Currently it's not possible to access the tasks of all an organisation members regardless of who is connected to the application. At the moment, you can only access Outlook Tasks using delegated permissions (i.e. on behalf of the current user). You can reach outside their own tasks using the Tasks.Read.Shared scope but again, this only provide additional access to Outlook Tasks that were shared with the current user.

    This would be a great add to the Microsoft Graph API to help Managers to follow the progession of their projects with new permissions like Tasks.Read.All or Tasks.readWrite.All.

    Thank you for sharing! We’re always looking at understanding the feature sets that folks would find value in having as an out of the box feature of the platform. We’ll pass this along to the engineering teams. We’ll also update the blogs here at http://blogs.office.com with any news.

  9. Graph API Golang SDK

    Golang is continuously getting good traction among developers in the industry. As of now, the Graph API only have official SDK support for C# and Java. It will be very beneficial to have Golang SDK.

  10. Allow $filter on showInAddressList for /users and /groups

    I'd love to be able to filter the /users and /groups collection on the showInAddressList property.

    This would allow us to get all users and groups that are to be shown in the addressbook, currently this means retrieving them all and filtering afterwards (but that poses issues with pagination).

    For groups, there is a dependency on this UserVoice: https://microsoftgraph.uservoice.com/forums/920506-microsoft-graph-feature-requests/suggestions/32677822-support-hiddenfromaddresslistsenabled-property-on

    Hi Yannick,
    showInAddressList filter support for User object in now under consideration.
    We will update the status when we will have more info to share.

    PS: The Group object property hideFromAddressLists is from Exchange service (not AAD), and currently doesn’t support filtering.
    I suggest you opening another feedback to track with this other request separately.

  11. 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,…

  12. 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.

  13. 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;
    }

  14. Support SharePoint lookup fields when creating list items via Microsoft Graph

    It is currently possible to retrieve this data, but it appears there is no current way of creating a new lookup field via Microsoft Graph. Any attempt at such a call will either return 200 ok, but leave the lookup field blank, or return 400 bad request (or the like).

  15. Add user.readBasic.all permission as an app permission in Graph

    Azure AD graph has delegated permissions for user.readBasic.all which restricts the information that a 3rd party accessing this api can capture from our tenancy directory. We have a 3rd party app that accesses the Azure directory to retrieve basic data to set up accounts in its user directory and we need to restrict this to the basic data due to the security risk. We cannot rely on the 3rd party just doing the right thing all the time.

    I need a way to set the app to allow app permissions (not delegated as the read occurs every 4 hours without…

  16. Supportability for more attributes with MS Graph API

    Please support syncing more attributes (on user create and update) with MS Graph API.

    Here is the wish-list:
    proxyAddresses,
    postOfficeBox,
    pager,
    msExchExtensionCustomAttribute,
    mail,
    ipPhone,
    info,
    extension<AADAppGUID><attribute_name>,
    description,
    countryCode,
    commonName,
    cloudAnchor,
    alias

    Thanks,
    Anna

    Most of these are GA (in v1.0) – proxyAddresses, onPremisesExtensionAttributes (msExchExtensionCustomAttribute), mail, imAddresses (ipPhone), ALL extension_{appId}_{name) properties, onPremisesImmutableId (cloudAnchor), mailNickname (alias).

    A few like PO box, pager, info, description, countryCode, and commonName are under review. In the meantime, as a workaround, you could synchronize these properties/values from on-premises into directory extensions or onPremisesExtensionAttributes.

  17. Ability to filter groups based on groupTypes in delta queries

    Hello , groups/delta is currently returning all types of groups , AAD , Unified , etc ..

    would be a huge improvement be able to filter by group type like in groups endpoint

    Something like this

    https://graph.microsoft.com/beta/groups?$top=500&$filter=groupTypes/any(c:c+eq+'Unified')

    https://graph.microsoft.com/v1.0/groups/delta?&$filter=groupTypes/any(c:c+eq+'Unified')

    Thanks

  18. Microsoft Graph JavaScript / TypeScript SDKs should support fluent APIs

    To engage more developers, the Microsoft Graph JavaScript / TypeScript SDKs should support fluent APIs to have something like this :

    graph.api().me

    Instead of something like this :

    graph.api('/me/people')

    Thanks for your feedback about the Office Developer Platform. The team likes your idea and we want to look into it further, so we’ve moved it to the Investigation Queue.

  20. Make it possible to manipulate CustomAttributes for organizational Contacts

    Organizational Contacts make it possible to share contacts via Tenant to Tenant. The only decent way to key off source tenant is via adding ExternalDirectoryObjectId to a custom attribute. Please consider adding this to the Graph API. Graph is phenomenal, however, the details really matter when collaborating T2T.
