  • Blog Post: Check out dev.outlook.com!

    As you can probably tell from announcements we made at BUILD this week like add-ins for Outlook coming to Outlook.com , new features in our REST APIs like web hooks and search, and new ribbon extensibility in the next version of Outlook; we are serious about investing in Outlook, Outlook.com, the Office...
  • Blog Post: Office 365 APIs and Node.js

    When we launched the Office 365 APIs , the Visual Studio folks released some very helpful client-side implementations of these APIs, making it much easier to get started. One of these implementations, the Microsoft Office 365 APIs Client Libraries for Cordova Applications , got a lot of attention from...
  • Blog Post: Using the Calendar API in PHP

    In the same spirit as my Python experiment , I decided to give PHP a try and see how far I could get with the Office 365 APIs. The same disclaimers apply: I am a total PHP neophyte. I'm certain that my code is probably non-optimal, but hey, it's a learning experience! The idea I had this idea for...
  • Blog Post: Ruby on Rails and Office 365 Tutorial

    I published a quick tutorial on writing your first Office 365 API app using Ruby on Rails . The tutorial takes you from creating a new Rails project to listing the contents of the user's Inbox using the Mail API . I'd love to get feedback on the tutorial. What do you think of the format? Does it go into...
  • Blog Post: Client Credentials Flow for Mail API in Python

    Matthias announced support for the Client Credentials flow in the Mail, Calendar, and Contacts APIs a couple of weeks ago, and since then, we’ve had a lot of questions about implementing it. Matthias published a great sample using .NET and ADAL , but many of you have asked for details on implementing...
  • Blog Post: Building Daemon or Service Apps with Office 365 Mail, Calendar, and Contacts APIs (OAuth2 client credential flow)

    Device and Web Server applications usually require a user to sign-on and consent to allow the application to access and work with their information in Office 365. The underlying protocol to gain access is based on the OAuth2 authorization code grant flow. I described this a while ago in one of my earlier...
  • Blog Post: Office 365 APIs and Python Part 1: OAuth2

    Knowing absolutely nothing about Python (other than it is apparently named after Monty Python!), I've decided to build a Python web app that integrates with the Office 365 APIs , specifically, the Contacts APIs . For your amusement, I'll be chronicling my misadventures as I learn Python and figure out...
  • Blog Post: Guides for OAuth2 with Azure for Office 365 apps

    As I started out learning about how to get an OAuth2 access token to use the Office 365 APIs, I created these "cheat-sheets" for myself. I realized that they might be helpful for others, so I've cleaned them up and posted them on GitHub. Right now I've got a guide for manually registering your app, and...
  • Blog Post: New sample: accessing OneDrive from a mail app

    The Office 365 REST APIs (Mail, Calendar, Contacts, and Files) provide an easy way to integrate Office 365 features into your app. But what if your app is a mail app ? With a little creativity, it's not much different than any other app. Let's take a look at how you can use the Files API to access OneDrive...
  • Blog Post: OAuth2 in action with the release of Office 365 Calendar, Contacts and Mail

    I bet everyone is equally excited like me to have the Office 365 API out of preview and generally available to start building super cool apps. For those entrepreneurs that worked with us through the preview, my colleague Rohit Agarwal posted a blog that summarizes the changes done to the Calendar, Contacts...
  • Blog Post: Zapier’s Office 365 API Journey

    Since we first heard about the new Office 365 product suite, we at Zapier have been eager to dig into the APIs that would accompany it. So earlier this year, when the Office 365 APIs preview launched at http://dev.office.com/ , we jumped at it! For those of you who aren't familiar with the Office...
  • Blog Post: Managing user consent for applications using Office 365 APIs

    Now that the new Office 365 APIs are available in preview and ready for you to build exciting applications, you might wonder how these applications can be managed. There are several aspects to managing applications that are built by using the Microsoft Azure Active Directory (AAD) OAuth2 framework...
  • Blog Post: Enabling Microsoft Azure portal access to manage applications using the OAuth2 protocol

    In my previous post about OAuth2 access to Calendar, Contact and Mail APIs I explained that applications need to be registered and configured in Microsoft Azure Active Directory (AAD). Furthermore, administrators for Office 365 organizations use Microsoft Azure Active Directory to manage OAuth2-enabled...
  • Blog Post: Using OAuth2 to access Calendar, Contact and Mail API in Office 365 Exchange Online

    I am excited to announce that finally EWS in Exchange Online as part of Office 365 exposes a RESTful API for Calendar, Contact and Mail that uses OAuth2 for authorization. In this blog I want to briefly describe Exchange's underlying OAuth2 implementation and how to use OAuth2 to access the new Calendar...
