Permission change events not coming in Webhooks (sharepoint online)


  • When user permission is changed between Can View and Can Edit for a file or folder, there are no sharepoint webhooks received. Other activities like Add Share, Stop Sharing do generate events.

    Is this a limitation or a bug. If this is a limitation, it is really a pretty serious one.

  • Hi AlanShare,

    Per my knowledge, SharePoint Online cannot track user permission changes (the activity that changing permission for user) currently.

    In SharePoint Online, we can track share/unshare file/folder/site, add/remove user or group to SharePoint group.

    For this requirement, I suggest you submit a feedback to the SharePoint platform:

    It is a platform for getting thoughts about Microsoft Office products.

    Best Regards,

    Linda Zhang
