Provide necessary API permissions to index Teams channels.

Index Teams channels, chat, and messages by granting the necessary API Permissions in your App Registration.

Grant API Permissions for Microsoft Teams

After following the steps in Entra ID - Create New App Registration to create a new App Registration, you will need to add additional API permissions to index Teams resources.

In addition to the Entra ID permissions listed in the Microsoft Connector for the Microsoft Graph, you will also need:

  • Under Microsoft Graph API:
    • Channel.ReadBasic.All
    • ChannelMember.Read.All
    • ChannelMessage.Read.All
    • Chat.Read.All
    • ChatMember.Read.All
    • ChatMessage.Read.All
    • Team.ReadBasic.All
    • TeamMember.Read.All
  • Once added, select Grant admin consent for ... where ... is your tenant name. This link is beside the Add a permission link.

Determine Indexing Scope

If you have many teams, it may be worth using the includes feature explained in the Common Fields: Resources section to index only the relevant teams.
