Hi Team,

 

I need some information regarding a MS Teams account. Basically I would like to know what type of permissions needed by an account on MS Teams to post any message to any Teams and Channels.

 

I understand that the account will be in my organization's active directory.

 

Trying to understand the permissions required by an account to achieve my above mentioned requirements.

 

It would be grateful, if I can get any contact to discuss this via email or teams call.

 

Thanks,

Reshmi Gupta

Do you mean programmatically, or as a user? For the latter, you need to be added to the Team/Group, no admin permissions are needed. It's best to be added as Owner as to bypass any moderation requirements.

Programmatically, this can be done via the Graph API or bots, etc.

@Vasil Michev Thanks for the reply!

 

So that means unless an account is added to a Team/Group, that account will not be able to send any message to that Team/Group..correct?

 

Second, programmatically can we add an account to Team/Group using GraphAPI or bots?

 

I checked the Graph API for MS Teams but could not see any api for adding a member to a Team/Group

 

If you don't mind, can you share the link for both (GraphAPI and bots)

 

Thanks,

Reshmi
