recieving notifications on create, update and delete event in sharepoint

Tzippy Freedman 0 Reputation points

I need to receive create, update, delete and share (when a file was shared with some user) change events on sharepoint list, I need to receive the notifications in code using dotnet core c#. I see the following in the documentation:

Drive root item and list change notifications support only the updated changeType. (

Do you recommend using graph api or the sharpoint event receiver for to achieve the required notifications?

    Hi @Tzippy Freedman

    I will recommend you to use sharpoint event receiver. Graph notification requires additional development effort to set up and manage subscriptions for event notifications. And there may have limitations on the number of subscriptions or the frequency of notifications, depending on the service plan or permissions.

    Sharpoint Event Receiver provides a built-in mechanism within SharePoint to respond to specific events directly. It also offers granular control and flexibility to trigger actions based on events at the item, list, or site level.

    In summary, if you specifically want to respond to SharePoint events within the SharePoint environment, have granular control over event triggers, or are working with older SharePoint versions, SharePoint Event Receivers can be a suitable option.
