Improved API support for working with files in the SharePoint recycle bin

Reference ID: MC277465 | Effective: September 6, 2021

MC277465 – Microsoft is rolling out some API improvements for working with files in the SharePoint recycle bin. These changes will not impact end-user experiences, but will make the contents of recycled files accessible by APIs with the use of a special request header. These updates will also result in some new change log behavior. Applications that consume operations from the change log may need to be updated to work as intended. More details about these changes can be found on the SharePoint: Developer Blog.

When this will happen:

  • Microsoft expects these updates to begin rolling out to Targeted Release tenants in early September and expect the rollout to be completed by mid-September.
  • Microsoft expects to begin rolling these updates out to Standard tenants in mid-October and expect that rollout to be completed by late November.

How this will affect your organization:

Since there are no changes to user experience, this update will only impact some API based solutions. Applications that consume operations from the change log may need to be updated to work as intended.

What you need to do to prepare:

Please read the detailed documentation on the SharePoint: Developer Blog.
