Remove pop-up requirement for Graph API SPFx web parts
Graph API web parts have a huge amount of potential for SPFx web parts and extensions. The preview version requires pop-ups which are not user friendly. In some environments pop-ups will be blocked by group policy. This is a ADAL.JS dependency but moving forwards it would be a backwards step to require pop-ups and make SharePoint less user friendly again. Vote for this and lets make MS move this forwards in the right direction.
We are happy to update you on significant changes with this capability as part of the SharePoint Framework 1.6 release, which technically removes the requirement of the popup.
As this capability is using adal.js under the hood (only GA capability in JS for Azure AD), there are still some edge scenarios where the popup might happen, so solution is not quite perfect due to the limitations in the AAD side, but it’s the best possible implementation and in normal scenarios you will not see any popups when accessing Graph information.
I've seen this in GA of SPFx 1.6. Fantastic job team!
Please remove pop-ups!
