3- Body:-

I don't have the documentation for the endpoint directly. But since PNPjs is library that is mounted on top of the REST API, maybe you can find your answer by analyzing how the library calls at this endpoint:


Also, this is the most documentation I found about this endpoint on a Microsoft site: https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/answers/questions/1282962/what-is-the-rest-api-endpoint-that-i-can-use-share

  • But for example I used the browser developer tool to inspect the parameters that will be sent from the SharePoint UI when we share files using Anyone link or using "People you choose".. then i added those parameters to the custom REST API and it worked.. but can we guarantee that those parameters will not get changed in the future since there is not any official documentation about those parameters and the option we have.. did you get my point?

  • You cannot guarantee it won't change, because it's an endpoint on testing / beta phase. As Microsoft is telling in the documentation.
