Hi there,

When looking for the Team's configiurations from \AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Teams\settings.json I could found the following sections:

- baseSettings
- initializedSettings
- preauthSettings
- settings
- settingsOverride

 

Is there any explanations what are these sections means and how to configure them?

 

Example way to read these:

(Get-Content -Path $env:userprofile\\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Teams\settings.json | ConvertFrom-Json).settings

 

The other configuration file we have is "desktop-config.json". By some reasons when the new version of Teams is received that file is always overwritten. Has anybody solved that issue?

@Petri X  AFAIK there no official documention about these files, and not much about it elsewhere either..

 

There are a few blog posts and articles mentioning these and using some of these doing modifications for mass deployment scenarios etc..

 

For example from @Linus Cansby :

Have you @adam deltinger ever though how this could be like this today? We do have a peace of software which has been distributed to world wide, and administrators controling the workstations have no idea about the configurations.

There’s been many things lacking and there still are administratively wise! Microsoft has been releasing more and better ways along the way and I believe this will also happen with the roll out options as well
