    Hi @Andrew Goodwin

    I do not believe this is possible as stated in another post at https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/answers/questions/761174/microsoft-graph-api-how-to-get-shortcuts-when-gett.html

    Shortcuts do not appear in children, refer to all properties: https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/graph/api/resources/drive?view=graph-rest-1.0#properties

    Hi @Andrew Goodwin
    Per my research, I do agree with DillonJS's answer. There is no such function to get the user who created shortcuts in onedrive currently. You could submit the feature request in Microsoft 365 Developer Platform. So they will take this into consideration.
