  1. ImageWebPart in Sharepoint

    On beta version -> Get page list. Json should provide webpart for image. Current version is only id, instanceId. I suggest provide imageSource or "uniqueid"

  3. Parameter for passing specific Site Design in Modern Team site Creation

    While creating the Modern communication site programmatically through Rest API/ Graph API there is a parameter available to choose the site design.

    Title = "title
    Description = "description
    AllowFileSharingForGuestUsers = false
    Classification = "classification"
    SiteDesign = CommunicationSiteDesign.Topic

    But while creating the modern team site programmatically there is no option to choose the Site Design, by default it is picking up the default Site Design. Even though we can create multiple site script and site design for Teams site, we are not able to specify a site design at the time of provisioning the Group.
    Is there any possibility to choose…

  4. Manage permissions at ressource level for Sharepoint and Files

    Today, when an application is granted access to Sharepoint or Files, it has access to all sharepoint sites and files of the user. In case of an application permissions, the admin user gives access to all Sharepoint sites and Files of its tenants.
    It would be great to manage permissions at Sharepoint site level. A user/admin user would grant an app access to a specific Sharepoint sites and to all the drives related to that Sharepoint sites.

  5. Extend the Microsoft Graph API with more SharePoint search features

    Microsoft Graph allows us to search individual sites

    e.g.

    https://graph.microsoft.com/v1.0/sites/mydevspsite.sharepoint.com,siteid/drive/root/search(q='cheese')

    The SharePoint REST api allows us to search across all sites

    e.g.

    https://mydevspsite.sharepoint.com/_api/search/query?querytext=%27chicken%27

    It would be extremely useful to be able to perform the search all sites call directly from the MS Graph.

  6. Patchy implentation of Select, filter and orderby Odata options

    This applies in numerous places. Everything, one would expect, would support these three. In different places one finds all or none or any of the 6 combinations of "some" It's only possible to find out you can't get a single sharepoint list by filtering on Name by trying it, for example. Some places require a $ sign in front of the keyword, some don't and won't work if it is present. Some bomb out with error 400 if they can't process a filter, others return content as if the filter wasn't there, some are case-sensitive when they filter (and need…

  9. getActivitiesByInterval route not working with Client Credentials

    When I try to query the getActivitiesByInterval route (for a SharePoint site) I am receiving an HTTP 500. My token (retrieved with Client Credentials) works fine for other routes but not for this one even if I have the correct rights. If I use a token with delegated permissions it works fine.

  11. Support for setting SharePoint Managed Metadata (taxonomy) column values and other complex column types on items via the Graph API

    It is currently not possible to set the value of a Managed Metadata column on a SharePoint item using the Graph API.

    Support for setting values on all standard SharePoint columns types is essential in the Graph API to drive adoption of this API. The following column types are currently not supported and have been raised in other UserVoice requests:

    Picture and Hyperlink columns:

  12. Change Sites.Read.All Permission Display String

    Access to SharePoint data in the Graph currently requires consent to read or write to the entire SharePoint Instance. This is presented to the user as: ‘Read items in all site collections’.
    Our prospects are hesitant to grant this permission as it appears like we can read all their data in SharePoint, regardless of access control settings in SharePoint.

    We suggest to change the display string from ‘Read items in all site collections’ to something like ‘Read all site collection items that user can access’.
    It makes it clearer at a glance that it’s limitied to user read rights and…

  13. Allow the token used to access MS Graph to also be used for SharePoint REST

    Have been trying to see if there is a way to authenticate a user once for the graph api and then also use the sharepoint rest api. There are features that are only available in the sharepoint rest api that we would like to use but dont want to ask the user to login again for these specific features.

    e.g. we can search individual sites from ms graph but the sharepoint rest api allows us to search all sites.

    https://graph.microsoft.com/v1.0/sites/mydevspsite.sharepoint.com,siteid/drive/root/search(q='cheese')

    and

    https://mydevspsite.sharepoint.com/_api/search/query?querytext=%27chicken%27

  14. Add support for webhook at site collection level inclusive of events in sub sites etc.

    Customer want Office 365 SharePoint Online to support webhook so it can push events to 3rd party security vendors to perform real-time inspection on the files go to SharePoint online.

    The subscription for SharePoint can only be hooked to drive level. We need to create subscription for every drive in every site or subsite. This is a bad solution for our production.

    Early we use Event Receiver in CSOM API. We can add event receiver to the site collection and all the sites/sub-sites in this site collection will be hooked. We can get the file events and protect the user’s…

  16. 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.

  18. There should be a way to enumerate all sites in the microsoft graph without haveing to do /sites?search=

    Our organisation creates hundreds of sites for each project or client.

    We rely on security to figure out who can do what. It would be nice to be able to get the list of sites available for a given account globally.

    /sites returns an errors
    /sites?search= returns stuff, but seems not be in the beta endpoinnt anymore

  19. 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

    {

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

  20. Fetching SharePoint document labels and managed metadata from MS Graph APIs

    Currently ms graph api for fetching an item from DriveItem
    (e.g. GET /sites/{siteId}/drive/items/{itemId} etc.) does not provide any information about documents labels and managed metadata.

    It is an useful information for large number of documents stored inside a drive.

    Refer https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/office365/enterprise/protect-sharepoint-online-files-with-office-365-labels-and-dlp for labels in sharepoint documents.
    Refer https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/managed-metadata for managed metadata.
