  1. Allow appOnly Apps to update UserProfiles and TaxonomyStore

    As mentioned here

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/dev/sp-add-ins/add-in-permissions-in-sharepoint

    and here

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/dev/solution-guidance/app-only-elevated-privileges-sharepoint-add-in

    it ist stated, that using AppOnly Permissions is restricted for UserProfile and TaxonomyStore (whereas Taxonomystore is unclear).

    However, as now CSOM supports .Net core, but only with AddIn-Model authentication, we have no possibility to use that to update UserProfiles or TaxonomyStore in an automated way in the backend using .Net Core.

    At least if that documention is still correct.

    Currently we have to use a service user and .Net Framework CSOM to do that tasks. But this on the other way prevents us to use new technologies for example in Azure, which is…

  2. Add a way to accept File Handler POST requests in an addin

    Less complex file handlers need almost no server-side code, the only bit being the code to transfer the POST data to client-side code.
    I suggest adding some way to get that information to client-side code that doesn't require writing custom server-side code - perhaps a directive that outputs it to a variable or something in the JS API.
    This would allow simple file handlers to be hosted as an addin, without the need for external hosting.

  3. Allow to display classic SharePoint-hosted add-in inside MS Flow tab

    Many customers want to display SharePoint-hosted add-ins (located in the App Web) inside MS Teams tab, but it's not possible. It's very weird when you can attach any website like Google, but you cannot attach another product from Microsoft Office 365 ecosystem...

  4. View Existing Assigned Permissions to SP AddIns

    Once permissions are applied to a Service Principal name via _layouts/15/appinv.aspx, it is not possible to see the permissions applied there after. Please build some functionality via the GUI so we can see each (XML) permission applied per Client ID and at what scope it was defined. These service principal names do not appear as 'SharePoint Apps' in the site contents page like other AddIns do, hence we can't click permissions and view them.

  6. Admin Site Search Experience Web Part

    The SharePoint Admin center has a fantastic List experience for searching across all sites and doing quick filtering.

    A web part generally available like this would be great for tenants with lots of Sites, or Hub Sites with lots Sites associated (100s-1000s). A typical use case would be to add it to the Homepage of a Hub Site so users can filter over all the associated sites. Similarly could be used on the Intranet home to search across all Sites a User has access to.

  7. Make InvalidateList JS api accessible to SPFX extensions

    SPFX extensions give us ability to add our own commands and to show/hide them based on different conditions e.g. state of the selected documents/

    These commands usually change the state of the document, but onListViewUpdated from BaseListViewCommandSet is not triggered automatically (which is fine) and there is no way to manually trigger onListViewUpdated.

    Through some google searches I found that there is module itemInvalidator with method invalidateCurrentItemSet. But it is hidden from JS API users.

    The onlu options we have now are:
    1) reload whole page - unacceptable in most cases
    2) make user to reselect the item - one…

  9. Custom error message for Sharepoint Add in when the app is down and 502 (bad gateway) error is returned.

    There will be instances when our app goes down. In such cases, when the end user tries to access a Sharepoint website where the add-in is added as a web-part, they see a 502 error. Instead, would it be possible to add a custom error message that can be configurable through the manifest file?

  10. SharePoint App Id/Secret registration owner details

    Currently we have business case where SharePoint App registration(SPO App ID/Secrets) are vastly used by users for their applications. I had discussion with MS Development support engineer and there is no way to track the owner of SPO app registration (SPO App ID/Secrets).

    It would be helpful if during registration of SPO app id/secrets, the owner information also be asked, so that whenever SPO App registration expiry comes near by, customer can notify that your SPO app id expiration coming please renew app secrets so that business application keeps running.

    Preferable solution would be online connector and also Powershell commands…

  11. Allow clientId instead of resourceName when requesting webApiPermissions

    When using the SharePoint Framework, you should be able to request webApiPermissions via the resource client Id OR the resource name.

    We have a multi-tenant application that's deployed to a couple dozen tenancies that we would like to rename. However, since permissions are requested by name, any attempt to rename the application may be met with our users having to go through the install process again. Being able to instead request access via the clientId would allow us to safely rename without having to worry about our users losing access.

  12. Add-ins Read Perms for Multiple Lists

    When I create an Add-in, I can request Read permission for a single SharePoint List in the AppManifest.xml file. Later, when the user installs my Add-in, SharePoint asks her/him for the name of exactly one list to grant my Add-in read access.

    I want my Add-in to have the ability to read from multiple lists from unrelated site collections, but I don't want to request read access for the entire tenant.

    Please modify SharePoint Add-in security so the user has the option grant an Add-in access to multiple lists for which she/he has access across the tenant.

    For example:
    If…

  14. Add ability to reorder playlists within a subcategory in M365 Learning Pathways \ Custom Learning

    Add ability to reorder playlists within a subcategory in M365 Learning Pathways \ Custom Learning. Currently the last added playlist shows up at the top of the subcategory page. This requires us to add custom playlists to a subcategory in reverse order of how we'd like it displayed and means we have to recreate the subcategory if we want to add a new playlist in a specific place at a later time.

  15. Enable Modern Experience Lists in SharePoint-Hosted Add-In Webs

    Hi,

    Add-Ins can have SharePoint components such as Pages, Lists and Libraries provisioned in the App Web, however we have found that Lists and Libraries provisioned using an XML schema do not seem to be able to become Modern. On list view pages it locks as Classic, and there is still an erroneous "Exit Classic Experience" link.

    My company has published SharePoint Add-Ins (apps), we use a Picture Library for allowing users to customise images used in our app. The link appears on the All Items page for the Library, even in brand-new instances of the App. We have had…

  16. Using add-in only / app-only permissions with search queries in SharePoint 2016 (On Prem).

    Currently we're not able to leverage the SharePoint Search API using the app only permissions within SharePoint 2016 (On-Prem). It should work the same way as it does in SharePoint Online (supports search queries).

  19. OfficeJs

    OfficeJs Addin Forward current message: Header and Body as an attachment.

    Can you please create an API endpoint that will allow a developer to forward the current message Header and Body as an attachment to an address. At the current Moment I believe when we try to forward a message as an attachment we have a message body with no header.

  20. Add CSOM Method to Release File Locks

    We need the ability to unlock files via CSOM (with an App Only token) via the SPFile.ReleaseLock method. The flow would be similar to what we can accomplish on-prem:

    $web = Get-SPWeb http://webUrl
    $list = $web.Lists['Documents']
    $item = $list.Items[0]
    $lockId = $item.File.LockId
    $item.File.ReleaseLock($lockId)

    This prevents needing to open support cases for long-lived lock files in scenarios where the end user is having connectivity issues causing long exclusive locks to be created, potentially locking the end user out of their own file.
