plannerExternalTaskSource resource type

Namespace: microsoft.graph

Contains information about the relationship of a plannerTask to a user experience outside of Planner. This allows surfacing or syncing tasks in Planner with other experiences to track work in the context of that experience.

You can display data in a plannerExternalTaskSource in a user interface to sync information for an external service, or to simply point to where a task was created in the external service.

The combination of the contextScenarioId and externalObjectId properties is unique within a tenant. If creation is called with existing contextScenarioId and externalObjectId values, the existing object is returned with no modifications.

This type is derived from plannerTaskCreation.
