Hi,

 

We have a requirement to automate the process of inviting external users to SharePoint Online site.

 

Is it possible to invite external users using CSOM on a SharePoint Online site.

 

Please share any insights and working approaches on the same.

 

We have already tried using CSOM and get an error that the user could not be found.

 

Please let me know if you need nay further information.

 

Regards,

Arun

Exactly what I was looking for.

Thanks Dean,

 

Information seems really useful. But might not be needed currently for requirement.

 

Regards,

Arun
