  1. Enable $filter on group members

    It's very important to be able to filter members of a group, for example to search for employees within an organization by name (e.g. 'startsWith').

    • Provide webhooks for Microsoft Teams messages.

      We are integrating Microsoft Teams threaded chat into our product offering. Our users will interact with the channel-based chat using both the Microsoft Teams application and from within our application. To avoid polling, we would like to be able to subscribe to Microsoft Teams related events. Of interest are events related to new channel messages. We found similar subscriptions for files and email, but nothing related to Microsoft Teams.

      See documentation for /subscription endpoints, Change notifications: "Use the Microsoft Graph API to get change notifications"

      • Support @mention when posting new MS Teams messages.

        Support @mention data when posting new chat messages using the Microsoft Graph API. The Microsoft Teams user interface allows for this, but the Microsoft Graph API endpoints remove @mention metadata and markup from new messages. We observed this using the POST /teams/{id}/channels/{id}/chatthreads endpoint, but it might affect other endpoints also.

        The same functionality should be added to the endpoint for replying to threads once it is developed.

        • Allow posting messages to Teams with Azure App rather than delegated permissions

          Currently you cannot post messages to Teams with application permissions, only delegated permissions are supported.

          • Allow '/drive' to the end of a call to get Team Channel drive information

            The call to get a Team Channel information `https://graph.microsoft.com/beta/teams/{team-id}/channels/{channel-id}` gives us no reference to access the channel files.
            I propose allowing `/drive` to be added to the end to access the location in SharePoint

            • Extensions Permission

              This affects all resources that support extensions but let’s take the User resource as an example:

              Extending the User resource currently requires an entire User Profile read/write consent (User.ReadWrite).
              We only want to read and write additional data that we provide to the User resource and not modify the entire resource. Users might be hesitant about consenting to Apps that could potentially corrupt their entire user profile.

              • Support Azure AD B2C local account

                There is currently no easy way to manage Azure AD B2C local account from a .Net Core app.

                Currently the only way to manage B2C local account is with Azure AD Graph API through Microsoft.Azure.ActiveDirectory.GraphClient nuget. But since those projects are deprecated and only maintained for critical issues, they will not be ported to .Net Core.

                If you have an ASP.Net Core WebApp or WebApi you need to use the Microsoft Graph .NET Client Library which support .Net Standard 1.1. But as Microsoft Graph API does not support local account, it is useless if your tenant is an Azure AD…

                • Enable $filter on group visibility

                  At the moment it is not possible to get a list of groups that user can access. Getting the full list of groups (including private) is quite useless.

                  • Ability to filter on collection type properties (e.g. find all users with skill X)

                    In order to, for example, filter users by a certain skill you cannot do only one REST call now.

                    From stackexchange:

                    "Filter on collection type properties is represented as below:

                    https://graph.microsoft.com/v1.0/users?$filter=skills/any(c:c eq 'Javascript')

                    However, filter on skills property is currently not supported. You can place a request in uservoice site."

                    I would like support for this /any command, specifically for skills but for all queries would be great too.

                    • 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:

                        • Allow MS Graph proxyAddress filters to specify endsWith() and contains()

                          Currently there is support for startsWith and eq filters on proxyAddresses. However there is no way to search for proxyAddresses that endsWith or contains a string. E.g. finding users with a proxyAddress in a specific domain.

                          $filter=proxyAddresses/any(x:endsWith(x,'@acme.com'))

                            • Provide FreeBusy Functionality in Microsoft Graph / O365 REST APIs

                              EWS / Outlook API non rest support the ability to request Free/Busy information about users. But in O365 REST APIs this functionality has been removed.

                              I know that Microsoft Graph / O365 API support suggestMeetingTimes which is helpful but when it comes to writing a scheduling application which contains displaying time slot information its nice to be able to get the general free-busy information.

                              It can be done through retrieving each users calendarView but in general its not necessary to see the entire meeting detail, but rather whether the person is free or busy during a time period.

                                • Increase webhook subscription from 3 days to about 6 months

                                  From the developer's view, ideally the webhook subscription will never expire. But that's probably not practical.

                                  The next best would be say 6month expiry. Because that means we still need to build a re-scheduling mechanism. But we don't have to run it every 3 days.

                                  I believe if the expiry was too long say 1 or 2 years, the developers will leave without building a re-scheduler, so the webhook will just break in 1 year's time.

                                  Currently, because the webhook subscription expires every three days, we are driving a behaviour where developers don't use webhooks - they just use scheduled…

                                  • Allow Access to Planner using Client Credentials Flow

                                    Planner tasks, buckets and plans are apparently not accessible using client credentials flow (app only).

                                    I can access them using code flow authentication, but that's not my requirement (internal web service).

                                    Everything else seems to work - it's just the planner stuff that doesn't (401 unauthorized).

                                    Is there a workaround that doesn't require a user to log in?

                                    • 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?

                                      • Be able to fetch mails by "conversations" in folders in one request

                                        Right now you cannot achieve "conversations" view in a mail folder using REST API with one request.

                                        A workaround can be found here http://stackoverflow.com/questions/41161515/best-way-to-achieve-conversation-view-for-mail-folder-using-outlook-rest-api

                                        but it is quite slow and not very efficient. Conversations view is the primary view of many mail client but is not achivable (easily) with REST API

                                        • API method for creating a chat thread message reply

                                          I am in need of an API method which can be used to create a chat thread reply message. The latest beta version of the Microsoft Graph API will allow me to create a new chat thread along with the first message, but I cannot add additional messages or replies.

                                          The documentation states that this feature will be included in a future release. I'm adding this feature request to express my interest in this planned feature.

                                          I need this method because I am migrating discussions from another CMS, into Microsoft Teams.
