I am currently using the following endpoints to access user specific sites (followed, frequent and suggested)

/_vti_bin/homeapi.ashx/sites/followed
/_vti_bin/homeapi.ashx/sites/recent
/_vti_bin/homeapi.ashx/sites/suggested

Both the /followed and /suggested work perfectly well, however the /recent is only giving me this output :

{
    "HttpStatus": "InternalServerError",
    "ErrorMessage": "Office graph is disabled.",
    "ErrorCode": 500011
}

According to brannmar (and the accepted answer) and after testing, the /recent endpoint does work with the added header SPHome-ClientType: SharePointIOS but from what he is saying, I won't be able to use this in a prodution environment.

I don't feel strongly about this endpoint particularly but I have not found any endpoint in Graph or the actual SharePoint Rest API that does something remotely similar.

I found these endpoints in various posts :

REST API to get Frequent Sharepoint Sites programmatically?

How to programmatically get Frequent Sharepoint Sites using REST API?

Office 365: The New SharePoint Homepage

The second post is the most interesting as you can see the issue was already here in dec-17 / jan-18. The OP suggests he posted a feedback on https://office365.uservoice.com but I can't seem to find it.

I have also tried using the endpoint used by the SharePoint Portal (https://<tenant>/_layouts/15/sharepoint.aspx) but I get an Unauthorized Access Exception because i don't know how to authenticate for this call.

Uri: https://northeurope1-sphomep.svc.ms/api/v1/sites/recent

The call is made only once (then it is cached probably in a hidden list on the user MySite) and uses a JWT Bearer Token (mine doesn't seem to work, but I guess it's normal since it's a token for my tenant)

I'm open to any suggestion !

I dont know if you have gotten a answer to this question some other way but here is a possible solution to your Office graph is disabled problem.

By simply adding an extra header to your request it should solve your problem.

SPHome-ClientType: SharePointIOS

I dont know why this works but it does. And also this it not a documented API from Microsoft so I would not use it in production. I have noticed multiple 500 errors when using it.
