Support for retrieving mail folder permissions

New Contributor



We would like to retrieve mail folder permissions via Graph API's but not able to see support for it.

Is there any way with which we will be able to get them and if not, what is the likelihood and approximate time frame when it will be available in Graph API?

Graph has zero support for Exchange admin operations currently, it might be years before we get anything. Use PowerShell instead.

Thanks for the information.

One more question then is : Is it better to use EWS Managed API's than Powershell in that case? We would like to access both Exchange On Premise and Exchange Online accounts for such operations.




Depends on which tasks you want to cover, and the permissions model you will use. EWS usually means impersonation, which is highly sensitive permission. For PowerShell, you can get very granular and grant permissions to just the cmdlets you need.

Thanks @Vasil Michev for the quick reply.
