I suggest you ...

Add a "My Groups - Read/Write" Permission (that does not require Admin Consent)

It should not be necessary to require an admin consent to do Group read write operations through the graph API. There should be a permission for My Groups.

        As it stands the planner api is unusable for real world usage due to this admin consent requirement and $filter not working.

        It is reasonable to expect that a user logged in to the API sees the same info as when logging in to the UI. In corporate environments it is unlikely regular users will get Admin access.

        Why can't I pull tasks assigned to me or tasks in the groups I own without getting admin consent?

      • Cameron Dwyer commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Groups is such a fundamental concept in the services unified through the Graph and the future of Office 365 that getting access to Groups a user is a member of needs to be as friction free as possible.

        Groups has been pitched primarily as a self-service concept to allow self-organising groups or teams to be efficient without involving IT:
        * Groups (and now Teams) allow for self service creation
        * End users can acquire apps from the app store

        For any of those apps the user acquires to know anything about the groups the user is a member of requires Admin Consent. This seems to be a step in the wrong direction. As an app developer, if I need to get Admin Consent for such a basic permission I may as well ask for everything I need (possibly more than is required) while I’ve got the Administrator looking at a consent form and then not have to bother the end users with user delegated permissions – kind of defeats the point of user delegated permissions.

        Can we please get these permissions changed so that as user can see groups they are a member of with requiring Admin Consent? Thanks.

        This admin consent requirement makes it very difficult to use the planner apis to access task information.
