Official documented Api needed to fetch modern Pages View count
SharePoint modern pages Social bar View count apparently does not use Search Managed property ViewLifeTime or ViewsLifeTimeUniqueUsers. Fiddler traces shows that some Internal Apis are used to fetch modern pages social bar view count. It would great if Microsoft release Public documented API so that custom SPFx web parts/extension in need of modern page view count, could utilize the API
This is something very important to expose, as this data can be used for many different reasons such as reporting and providing additional roll up information on webparts. We now have two different sources of truth and added inconsistency here.
We really need this functionality it creates such an inconsistent image of SharePoint when one section says one thing and another section like the Search Service ViewsLifeTime says something else!
