  2. Call Macros using Microsoft Graph

    I would like to run Excel Macros through the Microsoft Graph Excel API. I read through the documentation but couldn't find anything related to Macros. Is there a way of executing my Excel Macros somehow via Microsoft Graph?

  3. Session Token

    Graph Explorer is great. It'd be really productive to add a very simple feature that (semi?)automatically adds the session token to the headers. Since that's a VERY common necessary operation, anything to make it faster and easier to complete would be nice.

  4. Support Writing to PersonOrGroup Columns

    Currently it isn't possible to write values to a PersonOrGroup column in a List Item. The API lacks the ability to retrieve a list of people or groups, making it impossible to determine the ID stored in the Site's _catalog. It also lacks the equivalent to SharePoint's Web.EnsureUser() method making it impossible to generate new IDs based on an existing User object.

    Request is:


    • Support returning list of users and groups from the site


    • Provide an equivalent to Web.EnsureUser() that handles transparently mapping an existing User or Group entity to a Site's catalog.


    • Support returning the actual User or Group…

  5. 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.

  6. Set mailbox property "AddressBookPolicy" using Microsoft Graph API

    When provisioning users using Microsoft Graph API we cannot set the mailbox property "AddressBookPolicy" (ABP) which means we must execute a powershell script to set the property every time users are created. We can create the ABP's manually as this is a one-time action but with new users being created every day on tens of tenants, setting the ABP property through powershell is a nightmare.

  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. Office 365 Graph API: see list of events with proper subject and details for a room calendar

    I can use the Graph API to query users/room@domain/events but the subject of each event is the event creator and not the event title and there is no further information.
    I think that looking up events for a meeting room is one of the most useful features of a developer API for an enterprise calendar service and don't understand why this doesn't work in a useful way.

    An event without a name or any information about it besides the time and attendees is not very useful.

  10. Provide Outlook REST API quota management

    We are hitting rate limits with the Outlook REST API and there is no way to see what they are, no way to request an increase, and this appears to be the only support channel available.

  11. 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

  12. Support setting isDefault for OneNote Notebooks through the Graph API

  13. Loose reccurrence on an Event in Calendar API

    If an event has several fix dates, but no real pattern, it is impossible to create a reccurring event, i.e a SeriesMaster and its instances (occurrences). Example: the event starts on Feb 10 and repeats on Feb 20, Mar 02 and Mar 05. Deleting a SeriesMaster should delete all its occurrences too.
    Another option: create relations between existing events

  14. Implementet full OData v4 query consistently across all graph endpoints

    Currently the documentation says (as of 20th of April) that MS Graph query parameters are compatible with OData v4 queries.
    https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/graph/docs/overview/query_parameters

    This is not completely orthogonal as there are cases where some operations work and other cases where they don't.
    I've used the Graph Explorer to find out what works and what doesn't so far, but it isn't the ideal way.

    Filter operations Contains/Concat/Trim/ToUpper/ToLower are not supported in /v1.0/users but some are supported in /v1.0/me/events.
    Furthermore it seems string comparisons are case insensitive, rendering ToUpper and ToLower meaningless. Using case sensitivity and allowing the use of ToUpper/ToLower would allow the…

  15. Add 'select' and 'filter' to webhook resource subscriptions to get more accurate notifications

    Currently, only two options exist : updated or changed.

    It would be great to be able to be more specific to get only the targetted notifications, adding filters.

    Example : https://graph.microsoft.com/v1.0/me/messages?$select=isRead&$filter=from/emailAddress/address eq 'jon@contoso.com'

    --> Get a notification only when the 'isRead' field evolves for messages sent by Jon.

    Support for $select is being planned.
    Support for $filter is in the backlog.

  16. Add SharePoint REST/CSOM API to choose content database and quota when creating site collections

    In the April 2014 Cumulative Update for the SharePoint 2013 (released on 7th of May 2014) you published the possibility to create site collections remotely via the CSOM API.

    Till today it's not possible to choose a desired content database where the site collection should be stored in or to configure a quota template.

    Senior Program Manager Vesa Juvonen from Microsoft wrote a detailed blog article about this topic and received a broad response from the community where many people need these missing features.

    See here: https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/vesku/2014/06/09/provisioning-site-collections-using-sp-app-model-in-on-premises-with-just-csom/

  17. Make it possible to update LastPasswordChangeTimestamp via Graph API

    As mentioned in this article: https://support.microsoft.com/en-ph/help/4025960/federated-users-in-azure-ad-are-forced-to-sign-in-frequently , some federated users are required frequent login.

    Although the article present resolutions that LastPasswordChangeTimestamp can be updated via PowerShell, it actually cannot. It should be fixed and, more generally, the value should be updated via Graph API.

  18. Allow searching across all users' mailboxes via an API

    It would be nice to be able to search through everyone's emails for email sent to/from a certain address.

    My particular use case would be pulling in date/time details of correspondence with contacts stored in a CRM system.

    I can search an individual's email easy enough

    https://graph.microsoft.com/v1.0/users/jo@example.com/messages?$search="bob@example.com"&$select=from,sender,toRecipients,subject

    but to cross reference hundreds of staff with thousands of contacts with this method is impractical

    thanks : )

  19. Ability to update the user's email aliases (proxyAddresses attribute).

    https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/azure/ad/graph/api/entity-and-complex-type-reference#user-entity shows that we can GET, POST and PATCH the "otherMails" attribute of a user object. otherMails is described as "A list of additional email addresses for the user", which makes it sound like the user's email aliases. However, if you set this attribute, then look at the user in the Office365 Admin Center or Powershell, you see it's actually the "Alternate Email Address" attribute: i.e. the contact address required for admin accounts. In the Graph API the attribute that lists the email aliases is "proxyAddresses" and this is read-only (i.e. only supports GET). It's been explained to me by…

  20. 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
