How to retrieve contact items for add-in in JavaScript RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am trying to develop an add-in for Outlook which needs to retrieve data from the contact list.

    Since the user will already be viewing his contact page, I assume that authentication will not be required.

    I cant find any documentation on how to retrieve contacts via JavaScript.

    Please help.

  • Thank you.

    It seems that Microsoft Graph is the way to go.

    The documentation says that it runs on NodeJS.  Does that mean that the application runs on the server side and not the client side?
