Hi,

I want to update Microsoft Teams Chats (one-on-one / Channel) programmatically via C# .NET6. Additionally, I want to download and delete attachments.

I see that the Microsoft Graph API has an "Update chatMessage" section, but it is not working for me.

https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/graph/api/chatmessage-update?view=graph-rest-1.0&tabs=http

Can someone please confirm if we can update/delete chat messages and delete and download attachments via the Graph API?

If yes, could you provide any sample code?

Thank you.

    Yes, you can update and delete chat messages as well as delete and download attachments via the Microsoft Graph API.

    Updating a Chat Message: To update a chat message, you can use the PATCH request to the /chats/{chat-id}/messages/{message-id} endpoint.

    https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/graph/api/chatmessage-update?view=graph-rest-1.0&tabs=http

    Deleting a Chat Message: To delete a chat message, you can send a DELETE request to the /chats/{chat-id}/messages/{message-id} endpoint.

    https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/graph/api/chatmessage-softdelete?view=graph-rest-1.0&tabs=http

    Downloading an Attachment: To download an attachment, you first need to get the attachment ID using a GET request to the /chats/{chat-id}/messages/{message-id}/attachments endpoint. Then, you can download the attachment using the GET request to the /chats/{chat-id}/messages/{message-id}/attachments/{attachment-id}/$value endpoint.

    Deleting an Attachment: Currently, the Graph API does not support directly deleting an attachment from a chat message. You would need to update the message to remove the attachment reference.

    Thanks,
