In graph search api (/v1.0/search/query) for driveItem, how to query only OneDrive and only SharePoint results

Frank Hobert 1 Reputation point

When using the graph search API for DriveItem entity

with request body -

    "requests": [
            "entityTypes": [
            "query": {
                "queryString": "contoso"

I am getting both OneDrive and SharePoint results, is there any filter/ field i can use to just get OneDrive or SharePoint results?

    Hi @Frank Hobert,

    As far as I know, there is no such filter in search currently. Since some drive items sync with SharePoint, you can query them both by drive id or item id. It's hard to differ if the item belong to onedrive or SharePoint. As a workaround, you can use following api to get drive items

    GET /drives/{drive-id}/items/{item-id}
    GET /drives/{drive-id}/root:/{item-path}
    GET /groups/{group-id}/drive/items/{item-id}
    GET /groups/{group-id}/drive/root:/{item-path}
    GET /me/drive/items/{item-id}
    GET /me/drive/root:/{item-path}
    GET /sites/{site-id}/drive/items/{item-id}
    GET /sites/{site-id}/drive/root:/{item-path}
    GET /sites/{site-id}/lists/{list-id}/items/{item-id}/driveItem
    GET /users/{user-id}/drive/items/{item-id}
    GET /users/{user-id}/drive/root:/{item-path}

    And here is the api for SharePoint items

    GET /sites/{site-id}/lists/{list-id}/items/{item-id}
