how to share files/folders etc via REST API for Office 365 ? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is there any way we could share a file or folder with users (external or internal) through Office 365 REST API ?

    I just found a file manager API, but there is only information about update, delete, create, download, upload, and read operations~  so... I was wondering if I could achieve sharing through some way ?

  • Hi Sith,

    As far as I know, OneDrive is free online storage that comes with your Microsoft account. Please refer to

    Getting started with OneDrive for more information.

    We can also access OneDrive with our Office 365 account.

    To work with OneDrive automatically, I would suggest posting a new thread in  OneDrive Development forum.

    Regards,

    George.

  • Hi Sith,

    The features and APIs documented in Office 365 APIs are in preview and are subject to change. Do not use them in production.

    Your feedback about these features and APIs is important. Let us know what you think. Have questions? Connect with us on StackOverflow. Tag your questions with [office365].

    At present, I don't suggest using these APIs.

    If you want to share a file or folder with users in OneDrive, here are some articles for your reference:

    OneDrive API

    Using the REST API

    OneDrive API reference

    For more information, you could get support from OneDrive Development forum.

    In addition, this forum is used to discuss questions about apps for Office, questions about Office 365 APIs are not in our scope.

    Regards,

    George.

  • That is right, I found that Client Side Object Model (CSOM) can help me to access OneDrive with Office 365 account, thanks for your answer George ~  ;)
