Hi!

I see that there is a recent (January 2020) feature where in the OneDrive for BI web browser, you select a folder and you click on "Request files" and creates a sharing link that can be used to upload files to that folder.

Can this be done programmatically? I did not find any way of doing it using CSOM nor the REST API.

Thanks.

We are currently having a project that would need to do the same. I thought this would be in the OneDrive Graph API, but it's not.
The page were people lands when receiving a sharing "Guest Link" or a "Request Files" link seems to both use a different (but similar) API.
Where is this documented? I have no ideas.
