  1. Make CSOM license Linux friendly

    CSOM has restrictions on distribution for Windows platform only. Make the CSOM license linux friendly because tons of people want to use CSOM platform independently to avoid having to use the REST API.

    • CSOM: DocumentSharingManager.UpdateDocumentSharingInfo () API fails if filename contains % or # in it

      We are simply updating sharing of document which resides in SharePoint online using CSOM API.

      version: Microsoft.SharePointOnline.CSOM.16.1.7813.1200

      DocumentSharingManager.UpdateDocumentSharingInfo () API fails if filename contains % or # in it . No error though but return '0' UserSharingResult and sharing is not getting applied.

      Note: If filaname does not have % or # then API works without issue.

      Is new UpdateDocumentSharingInfo () API available to accept ResourcePath instead of string for url. Please help me out.

      I also tried other API ShareObject() but unfortunately this also did not work if file path (including filename) has "%" or "#" (reference: https://github.com/SharePoint/PnP/tree/master/Samples/Core.ExternalSharing)

      • /_api/web/tenantappcatalog/add endpoint should be return CorporateCatalogAppMetadata

        /_api/web/tenantappcatalog/add endpoints returns SP.File object, but it shoud be return Microsoft.SharePoint.Marketplace.CorporateCuratedGallery.CorporateCatalogAppMetadata (same as /_api/web/tenantappcatalog/availableapps/getbyid).\
        After I added a solution package, I can't deploy it because App ID is unknown. Certainly,I can get App ID by ListItemAllFIelds.UniqueId but I think it is very confusing.

        • SPWebConfigModification target for single web application, mention zone also in ApplyWebConfigModifications

          SPWebApplication.Parent.ApplyWebConfigModifications()
          SPWebApplication.Farm.Services.GetValue<SPWebService>().ApplyWebConfigModifications()

          In both these ApplyWebConfigModifications, The web.config modification refreshes all web.config files, it also does not differentiate zones. The last modified date changes for every web application web.config file, even if we targeted for a single web application. This seems default behaviour. Refreshing web.config entries recycles app pool and brings down other web applications which are not intended also.

          Can we have options to specify zones or update to only specific web application. This is missing even in SharePoint 2016. Not available in SP2010 and SP2013 too.

          SPWebConfigModification would be useful, when we add new servers to our Farm,…

          • develop different way to validate a new sharepoint webhook subscription for notifier URLS that cannot support responses

            some packaged platforms like Slack have incoming webhook capability and will give you notifier URLs. But these urls cannot respond back to a validation message and the required webhook subscription in SharePoint can never be created.

            • In Place Records Management: Provide a property that would expose manual record declaration availability in CSOM / REST

              1) Hopefully the feature InPlaceRecords (da2e115b-07e4-49d9-bb2c-35e93bb9fca9) shows up in the list of web features when it is activated.

              2) Expose a property that would specify the setting selected by the user in the Library Record Declaration Settings.
              a. Manual Record Declaration Availability
              b. Automatic Declaration

              3) Or - It would be great to have another property called "CanDeclareAsRecord" on this class:

              public class Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.RecordsRepository.Records
              Currently, it only provides a check if item is already an existing record. However, there is no method that says if a currently undeclared item can be declared.

              • OpenBinaryDirectUsingPath for CSOM File object

                The OpenBinaryDirect method of the Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.File class takes a serverRelativeUrl string parameter. When file paths contain % or # characters, as are now allowed on SharePoint Online, these have to be replaced with their HTML escapes in order for OpenBinaryDirect to work.

                Please consider implementing:

                public static FileInformation OpenBinaryDirectUsingPath(
                ClientContext context,
                ResourcePath path
                )

                to solve this problem more cleanly using the Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.ResourcePath class. This probably applies to SaveBinaryDirect as well, although I haven't tested the latter. Thanks.

                • Enable better user profile property update options

                  not having a bulk option to update custom multi-valued and taxonomy-based user profile attributes is greatly crippling out solution. In this regard, SPO is a let-down for our business needs.

                  • Fix search wildcard issue or provide more useful message

                    We have found an issue with property queries using REST that also occurs when using the SharePoint UI via a browser. Using the following query results in an error in the browser and also when executing the query via the REST API:

                    Title:"Jan de*"

                    I seems that any property query on Title that contains more than one word and where the last word has a wildcard at the end results in this error:

                    Search has encountered a problem that prevents results from being returned. If the issue persists, please contact your administrator.

                    Correlation ID...

                    The following variations all work fine:

                      Currently we don't have any API to declare a item in list/library as record or undeclare a item. We need an Rest API to use in SPFx or other development tools being developed.

                                  Provide CSOM API for Enabling/Disabling the option "Allow items in this list to be edited using Quick Edit and the Details Pane".

                                  After migration of SharePoint Previous versions to SharePoint online, there are instances where the quick edit or edits from details pane needs to be disabled, for lists across thousands of site collections. This is very challenging task if has to be done manually for huge scale of site collections.

                                  • API for "Create Team from Template" with Site Design

                                    We can do templating on SharePoint, through Site Designs and Site Scripts. We now also have the option to "Create a Microsoft Teams from Template".
                                    Unfortunately, both do not work together. We either have a templated SharePoint site with a generic Teams or a templated Teams with generic SharePoint site.

                                    I would love the possibility to combine both templating options. Preferrably with an API from day 1.
                                    This would give us an end to end templating scenario, where we can create preconfigured Teams with a preconfigured SharePoint site. (In the future, hopefully with a preconfigured Planner etc as well ;)…

                                    • List Product Id from /_api/web/tenantappcatalog/AvailableApps

                                      Requirement, I have installed app in one site collection, and try to install the same app to another site collection to make a copy, but from the previous site collection, I can get the product Id, installed Id, but not the Id from the /_api/web/tenantappcatalog/AvailableApps. is it possible to provide the original id and product id from this Rest API /_api/web/tenantappcatalog/AvailableApps.

                                      Thank you.
                                      Long

                                        • REST oData $filter should be able to work with managed metadata

                                          This is not supported using the $filter option. The only way to filter using REST is to pass a CAML query but not very convenient.
