M365 Changelog: (Updated) Announcing graph support for Get Team Template List

MC311845 – Updated June 23, 2022: Microsoft has updated the rollout timeline below. Thank you for your patience.

Microsoft will not be moving forward with Get Template Details at this time and will communicate via Message center when it will be available. Microsoft have updated the content below to reflect this change as well as updated the rollout timeline. Thank you for your patience.

This new release will bring Graph support to Get Template List. Team templates enable users to quickly create the right collaboration structure for their business needs. With Graph API support for Team Templates, Microsoft will be empowering our developer community to build their custom create team solutions on top of our existing APIs.

This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 70793.

When this will happen:

Public preview: We will begin rolling this out in mid-February and expect to complete rollout late February.

Standard: We will begin rolling this out in mid-Aug (previously late May) and expect to complete early September (previously mid-June).

How this will affect your organization:

Today, there is no support for List Team Templates via Graph API. This new functionality will bring two new Azure Active Directory (AAD) permissions providing access to these APIs.

TeamTemplates.Read (for user delegated access) and TeamTemplates.Read.All (for Application access). With these accesses, Users and Admin consented Apps will be able to get the list of First Party and Tenant Team Templates using List Team Templates API.

  • Customers can use Template Ids obtained through Team Template Graph APIs to create Team from Templates using Create Team Graph API. 

What you need to do to prepare:

You might want to notify your users about this change and update your training and documentation as appropriate.
