Tag: Office 365 Groups
Back in January, I wrote an article about how you could retrieve the site URL of an Office 365 Group. Linked article: Get the site URL of an Office 365 Group via the Microsoft Graph The way how I achieved it back then was via calling the drive end-point and parsing the site URL from the response.
Update Since 29/03/2017 I discovered a new API endpoint which makes retrieving the SharePoint site URL even easier. You can read all about it in the following article: Get the SharePoint site behind an Office 365 Group via the Microsoft Graph Original article One important piece of information I required for an application which I am currently building is the site URL of the Office 365 Group site.
Getting to know to which Office 365 groups users are a member of, is very useful information. You can use this information for building your own group applications or to keep a record where users have access to (governance / guest access). The way to retrieve the groups is already documented in the Microsoft Graph documentation, but it is a bit hidden and deserves more attention.
In one of my previous posts I explained how you can retrieve external / guest users via the Microsoft Graph API. Last week someone asked me if I knew how you can add guest users to an Office 365 Group via the Microsoft Graph API. As this was also a requirement for one of my projects, I did some digging to find a way to make this possible.
I just got a question from someone who wanted to know how to retrieve all the Office 365 Group documents he had access to. When you are having a lot of groups in your organization, files could be spread across them. Search is in most cases the answer to finding your documents easily.
