Is there any way to create user presence notification with Presence.Read permission?

George Voloshin 40 Reputation points


I research Microsoft Graph API Notifications. I need to use user presence status change notification.
I found some documentation I see that It is need Presence.Read.All permission to create user presence status change notification even If it is need only for this user.
It is very strange for user. We need to observe only his presence status but he must give permission to read statuses of all users in his organization.
Is there any way to create user presence status notification with only Presence.Read permission?

    Hi @George Voloshin,

    Thanks for reaching out!

    As per the documentation, there is no possibility of creating change notifications for Presence of the user using delegated permissions.

    Note: It does not support application permissions.

    To get the presence of the logged in user, the least permission is "Presence. Read", but to receive notifications on users' availability and presence, one must grant "Presence.Read.All" permission for creating subscriptions for presence resource type.

    Hope this helps.
