M365 Changelog: (Updated) Graph API for Teams Meetings Transcripts

MC400569 – Updated October 10, 2023: Microsoft has updated the rollout timeline below. Thank you for your patience.

New org-wide application permissions and RSC application permissions have been introduced to make sure that apps can access meeting transcripts for a specific meeting. Resource specific consent (RSC) permissions, specifically enables admins to authorize users to provide consent to apps, so they get specific access to a Teams meeting’s transcripts to which it is installed to, rather than providing them access across the entire tenant.

This message is specifically associated with post-meeting transcripts access for apps – Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID: 95788 that allows authorized apps to access Teams Meetings transcripts once the meeting is over.

When will this happen?

Microsoft will begin rolling this out in early October 2023 (previously mid-August) and expect to complete late December 2023 (previously late October).

How will this affect your organization?

As a tenant admin, you now have separate org-wide application permissions to access meeting transcripts across the organization. You can now switch to a more restrictive permission for apps to access only transcripts. Alternatively, you could opt for a self-serve model wherein meeting organizers/presenters can authorize individual apps to access the transcripts for specific meetings. This is possible via the feature Resource-Specific Consent.

To enable the new meeting transcripts-related org-wide application permissions:

You can review and accept org-wide application permissions for apps that require access to Teams meeting transcripts in your organization through the Azure portal (Azure Active Directory > Enterprise applications > <App Name > Permissions)

To enable the new meeting transcripts-related meeting specific RSC application permissions:

As a tenant admin, you will have the ability to turn on/off resource-specific consent for apps in chats/meeting using a master switch. Once enabled, authorized users can now authorize a Teams app in a meeting, to access for that specific meeting using these permissions. More details can be found here.

What do you need to do to prepare?

Org-wide Application permissions:

Review and accept permissions for apps that require access to Teams Meetings transcripts in your organization (both app and delegated context) through the AAD portal through Enterprise Applications > App Name > Permissions.
