HTTP request

To update settings for contact insights:

PATCH /organization/{organizationId}/settings/contactInsights

PATCH /organization/{organizationId}/settings/peopleInsights

Request headers

Header Value
Authorization Bearer {token}. Required.
Content-Type application/json

Request body

In the request body, supply the values for relevant fields that should be updated. Existing properties that are not included in the request body will maintain their previous values or be recalculated based on changes to other property values. For best performance you shouldn't include existing values that haven't changed.

Property Type Description
isEnabledInOrganization Boolean true if the specified type of insights are enabled for the organization; false if the specified type of insights are disabled for all users without exceptions. Default is true. Optional.
disabledForGroup String The ID of an Azure AD group, of which the specified type of insights are disabled for its members. Default is empty. Optional.

Note: This operation does not verify the disabledForGroup property value if you include it in the request body. If you set the disabledForGroup property to a string, this operation does not check the existence of the corresponding Azure AD group. This means, if you set disabledForGroup to an Azure AD group that does not exist or is deleted afterwards, this operation will not be able to identify any group membership and disable item or people insights for any specific users. If isEnabledInOrganization is set to true, the operation will enable the specified type of insights for all the users in the organization.

Response

If successful, this method returns a 200 OK response code and insightsSettings object in the response body.
