Add support for Delta Sync from “now”
With all the delta queries you need to loop through pages and pages of @odata.nextlink until you get to the last page with the @odata.deltaLink. I'm not interested in the all the changes that have happened, I want all the changes that will happen from now on. (To get this token, my script looped through the pages for about an hour...)
The Azure AD Graph API had support for this, according to the documentation: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/azure/ad/graph/howto/azure-ad-graph-api-differential-query#AdditionalDifferentialQueryFeatures
It used a specific header value to request just the deltaLink. I would like this to be available in the Microsoft Graph as well.
Sorry for the late response here, and that we didn’t notify when this was available earlier.
This capability IS available in Microsoft Graph Delta Query. Please see https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/graph/delta-query-overview?toc=.%2Fref%2Ftoc.json&view=graph-rest-1.0
Append $deltaToken=latest to the delta function and the response will contain a deltaLink and no resource data. This is only supported for directory objects like user and group.
Hope this helps,
