Update chatMessage

Update a chatMessage object. With the exception of the policyViolation property, all properties of a chatMessage can be updated in delegated permissions scenarios. Only the policyViolation property of a chatMessage can be updated in application permissions scenarios.

The update only works for chats where members are Microsoft Teams users. If one of the participants is using Skype, the operation will fail.

This method does not support federation. Only the user in the tenant who sent the message can perform data loss prevention (DLP) updates on the specified chat message.

Note

When used with application permissions, this API is metered. It supports the model=A payment model. For details, see Payment models. If you don't specify a payment model in your query, the default evaluation mode will be used.

Permissions

One of the following permissions is required to call this API. To learn more, including how to choose permissions, see Permissions.

Permission type Permissions (from least to most privileged)

Note: Permissions marked with ** are supported only for backward compatibility. We recommend that you update your solutions to use an alternative permission listed in the previous table and avoid using these permissions going forward.
