Application permission for Get Presence is still not working

lakshmi 491 Reputation points

Hi, Previously, I submitted a request to check the feasibility of using Microsoft Graph API's Get Presence without requiring user sign-in. During that time, application permission support was not available for this functionality. I got the link below to get updates regarding the application permission implementation for Get Presence. Link: Microsoft Tech Community - Graph API Presence Application Permissions It appears that the feature has been implemented, although it hasn't been reflected in the documentation yet. Document Link: Microsoft Graph API - Presence - Permissions Today I have tried to get the presence using the application permission without signing. and i am getting status like 'Waiting for activation' User's image

Could you please help to get an update on this Thank you

    Hi @lakshmi

    The application permission for the "Get presence" API is currently available and it works fine for me.

    User's image

    var scopes = new[] { "" };
    var tenantId = "{tenant id}";
    // Values from app registration
    var clientId = "{client id}";
    var clientSecret = "{client secret}";
    // using Azure.Identity; 
    var options = new TokenCredentialOptions
        AuthorityHost = AzureAuthorityHosts.AzurePublicCloud
    var clientSecretCredential = new ClientSecretCredential(
        tenantId, clientId, clientSecret, options);
    var graphClient = new GraphServiceClient(clientSecretCredential, scopes);
    var result = await graphClient.Users["{user id}"].Presence.GetAsync();

    Please try upgrading your graph SDK to above 5.0 and remove the Request() method.

    Hope this helps.
