  • Hi guys,

    I would like to know that the permission of MailTracfiic report APIs, I have a create a user in billing administrator,password administrator,service administrator and user management administrator roles except global administrator, I got 404 error, see blow screenshot:

    And I also try to use a user only in exchange administrator role, I can get the correct response. It' conflict with the document,see https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/previous-versions/office/developer/o365-enterprise-developers/jj984344(v%3doffice.15)#permissions

    So I would like to know the real permission for this APIs and are there any new APIs can replace these MailTraffic report APIs?

  • If the account can view this report in the Office 365 Control Panel, then the account has permissions to retrieve the data from the REST web service. This report requires the user to be assigned to the View-Only Recipients role.

    The doc is not very new so please follow your actually test.
