  1. Get Users List with Presence

    There should be an API which returns all the users with their presence or it's better if we can add presence details in current get users API.

    Thanks & Regards,

  3. Let the Graph API create the underlying SharePoint site automatically when I create a private channel

    After I create a private channel with Graph Beta I had to manually click on the Files tab for the Team clients to create the SharePoint site. I would like to Graph Create Channel API to create the underlying SharePoint site as well.

  4. Add/Support "Request to add members" feature through Graph API

    We are missing the possibility to recreate #MicrosoftTeams 's feature "Request to add members" with #Microsoft Graph API.

    We would like to be able to generate this "request" on behalf a member of a team.
    This request nee to add at least the native notification inside the Teams client to help owner(s) decide if yes or no, they approve or decline the request.

    At the moment it seems this feature is not available from Graph API (v1 or event beta) and more annoying it seems to be an abnormal behavior if we try to add member on behalf a member…

  5. Provide options for retrieving more than 1000 messages at one request.

    By default, the size of collection that holds the request output in Java SDK is 1 to 999. It would be useful if larger sizes were available for bulk processing of emails.

    In addition, the default size is set to 10 and not mentioned explicitly in the documentation.

  6. Get "away since" datetime on Presence API

    Skype4Business had a "last seen" / "away since" datetime value. This allowed the developer to make more intelligent decisions on how to display presence information, as well as the ability to show a "last seen" datetime.

  7. 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.

  8. Allow Dynamic scoping to Application access policies in Exchange.

    When Using ApplicationAccessPolicy to limit Application permissoins in Exchange, you can only use Mail Enabled security groups. You cannot create a dynamic mail enabled security group. This creates a problem when trying to limit an application to a dynamic group of mailboxes. (Application Permissions)
    We have a need to manage applications on a country level. An application in one country may be only approved to work on mailboxes in that country. We have not found a way to secure GraphAPI Application access within Exchange to only the mailboxes in that country because there is not a way to dynamically manage…

  9. Graph API Beta - Un-assign Policy from Service Principal

    Today there is an endpoint to assign Azure AD Policies to service principals, but there is no endpoint to un-assign a policy from a Service Principal.

    Here is the endpoint to assign a policy:
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/graph/api/policy-assign?view=graph-rest-beta

    Here is a link to the powershell cmdlet for unassign policy:
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powershell/module/azuread/remove-azureadserviceprincipalpolicy?view=azureadps-2.0-preview

    First note is that we now have named policies rather than a single policy type. This change was made in February, just after your post. See https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/graph/changelog#identity-and-access-azure-ad-3

    The docs have recently been updated to ensure that the Add, List and Remove topics are present. Please see and example:
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-gb/graph/api/serviceprincipal-delete-claimsmappingpolicies?view=graph-rest-beta&tabs=http

    While policies are ALSO in v1.0, you can’t currently assign them to servicePrincipals as we only just added this to v1.0. An update will go out in a couple of weeks to enable add, list and remove typed policies to/from a servicePrincipal.

  10. 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)?

  12. Fine grained access control in sharing documents with edit permissions but without further sharing persmissions

    In process of co-authoring documents and collabaration, in the scope of O365 and Word documents, if a group of 4-5 users are collaborating and co-authoring a document, we want to restrict sharing permission for all users besides the owner who created or uploaded the document. Other users can edit the document but they should not be able to share with other users, i.e. we want to hide the ‘share’ button for them. There are API and permissions to control read and write, but not to control the share, is there any API or work around to achieve this?

  13. Add ability to add/edit/update Teams meeting roles from the Graph API

    Using the graph API you can create a new Group Event /groups/{id}/events/{id} however because it's in a group, you're unable to set the Organizer of the event because it will always be the group it's self.

    This leaves the only 2 people that can change the 'meeting options' (via a link in the calendar appointment)
    - Organizer - This is the group itself (the group doesn't have a login - so it's not an option)
    - The Owner - The account who run the API call to create the event. If this is a service account, then this isn't an…

  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. Ability to forward signed emails

    Currently, we cannot forward emails that are signed ("createForward" endpoint in the Graph API). Instead, a cryptic error message ("The specified object was not found in the store., Cannot open attachment.") is returned with HTTP status code 404.
    After discussion with the support, it appears to be a design decision to exclude signed emails from the built-in forward functions. As this is an unintuitive design decision that is also currently not documented, this can be a big show stopper in many projects (I assume that most people are not aware of this limitation of the Graph API).
    It would be…

  16. Enable $orderBy on me/chats endpoint

    We need to get the most recent (MS Teams) chats for a user and need to order by lastUpdatedDateTime (or at least createdDateTime). Please allow this.

    The error when using $orderBy for the me/chats endpoint currently is:

    "Query option 'OrderBy' is not allowed. To allow it, set the 'AllowedQueryOptions' property on EnableQueryAttribute or QueryValidationSettings."

  17. Allow retrieval of direct reports Planner tasks via the Office Graph API

    I would like to be able to retrieve all the tasks assigned to my direct reports across all their plans. Right now there is no easy way to gather this information via the Planner UI other than navigating through every plan.

  18. Support Re-register for MFA for a user with Graph

    Admins and apps should be able to programmatically enforce "Re-register MFA" for a user. This is missing in Graph.

    See also https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/active-directory/authentication/howto-mfa-userdevicesettings
    "Require Re-register MFA makes it so that when the user signs in next time, they're requested to set up a new MFA authentication method."

    Thx, Toni

  19. Retrieve Likes and Comments from a Sharepoint Page

    There is no way to retrieve this info without scraping the actual web page. If there is, could you please point me in the right direction. This should also be added to the Management Activity API so all content (edits/deletes) can be capture for compliance reasons.

  20. Add Secure Messaging to Outlook API

    The current graph API within Outlook doesn't support enabling encryption or secure messaging support. Secure Messaging is becoming the norm for PII and PHI communication and Office 365 supports it out of the box with an E3 license. However, programmatic access isn't available as far as I can tell. Enabling it would accelerate a number of secure messaging initiatives.
