In September 2021, we changed content type publishing to improve performance and make newly published and updated content types available to sites faster. We have optimized the syncing of published content types to sites and libraries, switching from a “push everywhere” model to “pull as needed” approach.

Apart from the UI support to add published content types directly to a list /library/site, we are happy to announce that we are now enabling Graph API support for fetching and syncing published content types from content type gallery or content type hub site to target sites. These APIs will enable developers to get a list of published content types in content type hub site that can be added to a list or site content type collection, add a published content type in content type hub site to a site or list content type collection, get status of all content type sync operations that will be completed asynchronously. Detailed documentation will be shared once the API is nearing beta release. 

Example 1: Add or sync a copy of a published content type from content type hub to a target site or a list 

Request: 

POST https://graph.microsoft.com/beta/sites/{sitesId}/lists/{listId}/contentTypes/addCopyFromContentTypeH... 

{ 

  "contentTypeId": "String" 

} 

Response: 

HTTP/1.1 200 OK 

Content-Type: application/json 

 

{ 

  "value": { 

    "@odata.type": "#microsoft.graph.contentType", 

    "id": "String (identifier)", 

    "description": "String", 

    "group": "String", 

    "hidden": "Boolean", 

    "isBuiltIn": "Boolean", 

    "name": "String" 

  } 

} 

Example 2: Asynchronous Pull 

Request: 

POST https://graph.microsoft.com/beta/sites/{sitesId}/lists/{listId}/contentTypes/addCopyFromContentTypeH... 

Content-Type: application/json 

Content-length: 33 

 

{ 

  "contentTypeId": "String" 

} 

Response: 

HTTP/1.1 202 Accepted 

location: https://graph.microsoft.com/beta/sites/{sitesId}/lists/{listId}/operations/{operationId} 

Note: The response object shown here might be shortened for readability. 

 

Example 3: Get compatible content types in content type hub that can be added to a target site or a list. 

Request: 

GET https://graph.microsoft.com/beta/sites/{siteId}/lists/{listId}/contentTypes/getCompatibleHubContentT... 

Response: 

HTTP/1.1 200 OK 

Content-Type: application/json 

 

{ 

  "value": [ 

    { 

      "@odata.type": "#microsoft.graph.contentType", 

      "id": "String (identifier)", 

      "description": "String", 

      "group": "String", 

      "isBuiltIn": "Boolean", 

      "name": "String" 

    } 

  ] 

}
