  2. Create dynamic groups based on application installation status

    This would help when an admin wants to apply a configuration based on application install. Currently, I am deploying a start menu and taskbar layout which includes Office 365 apps but they don't often install by the time the configuration profile has already been applied. So the profile needs to be re-applied.

  3. 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.

  4. Implement validateGroupAlias into the Graph API

    At the moment there is no way to validate a group alias via graph API.
    You can create a group but you can not validate the properties before thats kinda bad.
    I think this would be very helpful for a lot of developers.

  6. 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.

  7. Issue with allowExternalSenders property in groups

    I saw that setting allowExternalSenders property through POST/PATCH method is currently not working with v1.0 and beta. Do you plans for making it work any time soon? It is very tedious to set it manually through the UI.

  8. Allow filtering of groups by createdDateTime

    Hi,
    Current verison of Graph does not allow filtering of Office 365 groups based on their created DateTime. Is this something that can be added?

  9. 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.

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

  10. 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

  11. Enable setting of the Group Classification that the UI supports

    Either in the creation or update of an O365 group, enable the setting of the Classification. This is only supported through the new group creation screens at the moment.

  12. Add $filter and $select on a function or action in Microsoft Graph

    GetMemberGroups only returns the "id" properties of the groups, afaik there is no way to include other additional properties (my guess it's because it only searches in some kind of index rather than actually traversing all nodes in the hierarchy, which makes sense when it needs to be transitive)

    DirectoryObjects.GetByIds comes handy once I have the ids from GetMemberGroups, but this one returns all default properties. If I specify any $filter for example if I know that I don't need groups with certain prefix in displayName, or a $select because I know I will only need…

  13. 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

  14. Improve Graph API for groups (teams & Outlook groups)

    I need to retrieve some info on groups (teams & Outlook groups) from Graph API but it seems unavailable.
    Could you please provide them ?


    • endpoint "/groups" : return a field "lastModifiedDateTime"


    • add an endpoint "/groups/<groupID>/drive/recent" allowing to retrieve recently modified files / folders (or support a new parameter to "/me/drive/recent" in order that this endpoint returns recent files from "groups drives")

    Pankaj, thank you for the feedback! We’ve added the capability to assign a group as an owner of another group to our backlog.

    Thanks!

  18. 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.

  19. Allow DisplayName and/or Other Attributes to Be Used for Identifying Groups

    For users, you can query via /users/{id | UserPrincipalName}, which is fantastic. For groups, you can query only via /groups/{id}. This has caused painful ramifications for things like the AzureAD PowerShell module. For instance, the settings for Office 365 Groups, if you want to restrict group creation to members of a specific group, you have to pass the ObjectId of that group. Who is going to know this? So, you have to first lookup the group via displayName with a filter, then supply the ObjectId. This translates into a poor end user experience.

    I would argue that most endpoints need…

  20. Provide API to join / leave Office 365 Group

    As user can join / leave existing Group from Outlook web access etc. It would be nice to have API to do same from custom apps.
