Graph API support for new content type sync enhancements

Reference ID: MC307658 | Effective: January 24, 2022

MC307658 – Earlier this year (MC271079 – July), Microsoft announced the rollout of a new sync mechanism for Syntex & SharePoint content types and the subsequent phasing out of the old mechanism. Aligning with the new sync mechanism changes, Microsoft will be releasing the Graph API support for fetching and syncing published content types from content type gallery or content type hub site to target sites.

This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 88532.

When this will happen:

Beta release: Microsoft will begin rolling this out in early January and expect to complete rollout late January.

V1.0 Release: Microsoft will begin rolling this out in late April and expect to complete rollout early May.

How this will affect your organization:

Since there are no changes to the user experience, this update will only enhance the API-based solutions. Applications using Graph APIs to manage content types can use these APIs to further enhance their operations as intended.

What you need to do to prepare:

You may want to update any internal documentation related to the Graph CT sync APIs for new content type publishing. Additionally, you may also want to update any scripts to use the new API endpoints.
