  1. Graph Explorer - Should support App-only authentications

    We use Graph explorer to test Graph APIs, but it uses user+app authentication policy
    But in order to check app-only authentication policies, we have to rely on PNP PS or POSTMAN Or other tool. It would be good if the Graph explorer has the capability to test all three auth methods(Deligate, Client-Cred, Certificate)?

  2. Pinned Channels in Microsoft Teams

    With the announcement at Ignite 2019 of Pinned Channels it would be great if we could get access to them via the Graph API. You could add a property to the Channel called 'isPinned' and/or make a call to get all pinned channels in one hit e.g. me/pinnedChannels

  5. Include "businesePhones" in basic profile

    According to https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/graph/permissions-reference#remarks-23, now with permission:"User.readBasic.All" , only bleow properties would be visible:


    • displayName

    • givenName

    • mail

    • photo

    • surname

    • userPrincipalName

    Which means "businessPhones" is not included.

    So it means normal user (not admin) won't be able to view other users' business phones in Teams, even these "other users" are their colleagues !

    You never want to reach your colleague by calling their business phone !? So what's the point to keep business phone invisible to most users in same organization?

    Just suggest to include businessPhones in basic profile.

  6. Delta and Subscriptions to include photo and photo property with last update date

    If you have a tenant with a lot of users or a SaaS platform that works with millions of users accounts in Microsoft, it is extremely painful and time consuming to pull/sync profile images from Microsoft Graph. Doing live queries against Graph for photos are also causing additional strain on the Graph infrastructure and end users suffer the performance penalty of a service having to query another service first. So it is ideal to sync images in some cases to local systems for performance gains.

    Based on testing that I did I calculated that fetching photos on 300'000 users can…

  9. Working with Teams without admin consent

    To make automated tests of MS Teams, you need to use the designated list of Graph API requests.
    But the Graph API requests all require the access type “Group.ReadWrite.All” using admin consent, which is not useful for our customers.
    The proposal would be to add one more access type, for example with the name “Group.ReadWrite”, which will allow the creation of a team, creation of a channel in the team, sending a message to the channel and replying to that message.
    The same user needs to be able to delete the channel and the team previously created.
    This is be…

  10. Graph SDK for full call recording for IVR Bot in Teams

    We are using the Graph SDK to develop Teams based IVR bot. Currently graph SDK supports only to recording user response for 5 minutes. But full call recording is basic and mandate requirement for any IVR application.

  11. Provide a Teams API To send direct messages to users

    Currently, the only way to send messages is to post a message on a channel in a team. It would be great if there could be an API to send a direct message to the users. Please let me know if it already exists, because I could not find any such method in the chat object here :

  12. Simple endpoint to receive all calls from all users

    It would be very helpful if /communication/calls or /me/calls simply provides a list of all calls, as well as the /me/messages list.

  14. Get the total number of replies of each message when listing channel messages

    The response object when listing channel messages or getting a specific message, should give the total number of replies.
    This way, we don't have to fire a potentially heavy request just to be able to use this property.

  15. Planner access right

    Now api for planner requires groups.read.all or groups.write.all which is too pervasive permission in a large company 0365 tenant. Is it possible to access to own plans or groups with onbehalf user permission on a single user ? task.office.com has an internal api that can do this.

  16. Make it possible to create organizational Contacts using graph API that appear in Exchange Global Address List (GAL)

    It has been stated by the Office Dev Team that POST organizational contact will not be supported as...

    "With the notion of guests now in Office 365, the decision has been made that Organizational contacts would not be needed moving forward."

    For those of us developing with Exchange-centric customers this causes us to develop solutions that must connect to Exchange Online with accounts that do not have Multi-Factor Authentication enabled. Automation is hindered by having to constantly rotate new passwords (via Import-Clixml) and factor that into the code.

    This is a security nightmare.

    Not to mention, connecting to the…

  17. Support $select and Schema Extensions on /me/joinedTeams

    We have schema extensions on the Group resource to add metadata to user's Teams. We currently need to call both the /me/joinedTeams and then make time consuming calls to the /groups API in order to fetch the schema extensions for all the Teams that the user is joined to.

    It would be of great help if we could fetch the Schema Extensions directly on the /me/joinedTeams endpoint.

    It would be even better if we could also $filter the joinedTeams to only return the Teams that have a particular schema extension.

  18. Create a (non-draft) message via MIME content (like APPEND in IMAP)

    We should be able to post MIME email content to create a new message (that isn’t a draft). Just to allow copying an email coming from another email account, which is a basic feature of any email client. In IMAP parlance, this is the APPEND command. It’s currently impossible to support this functionality when building an email client that uses the Microsoft Graph API.

  20. Complete custom teams tab adding and configuration from code

    When adding a custom SPFx teams app to a team using graph, it should be possible to complete the configuration from code so that the user is not required to complete the configuration.
