  • Blog Post: Uploading File Attachments to Yammer

    Working with attachments to message postings in Yammer has been something that I've had a few questions on over time and just recently had a chance to take a look at it. I decided to blog about it only because there appears to be such paucity of information around folks that have actually done this...

  • Blog Post: Using Yammer Open Graph in .NET - Part 1

    I've already written about using the Yammer APIs from a .NET client application here: http://blogs.technet.com/b/speschka/archive/2013/10/05/using-the-yammer-api-in-a-net-client-application.aspx. This post is the next logical step in that journey, which is working with Yammer Open Graph items from...
  • Blog Post: Enhancing the Yammer Search Results and Messages Samples and Deserialization

    Just as kind of strange coincidence, I was in working on some Yammer message JSON goo and realized that there were actually a couple of other important data elements that comes down in the JSON payload when you get a collection of messages from REST. That includes both querying for messages directly...
  • Blog Post: Integrating Yammer and SharePoint 2013 Search Results

    This post is in response to a question I get pretty frequently when talking about Yammer. The question that many folks want to know is "how can I crawl my Yammer content from SharePoint?" Well, unfortunately you can't, and I have no trick up my sleeve to show you otherwise today to say...
  • Blog Post: Using Impersonation with the Yammer APIs

    One of the things that isn't particularly well known about the Yammer APIs is that its OAuth infrastructure does support a form of impersonation (at least that's how I describe it). This can be extraordinarily useful when you need to access data on behalf of another user and do so within the...
  • Blog Post: Some More Advice When Using the Yammer APIs with .NET

    I wrote this post a little while back here: http://blogs.technet.com/b/speschka/archive/2013/10/05/using-the-yammer-api-in-a-net-client-application.aspx , and I think I'm going to have to fall on the sword just a bit because I have some code in there that I think has people kind of turned sideways...

    I posted a while back regarding how to configure Yammer and Azure Active Directory (AAD) together so that you could use it for single sign on to your Yammer network - http://blogs.technet.com/b/speschka/archive/2014/01/08/using-azure-active-directory-for-single-sign-on-with-yammer.aspx .

  • Blog Post: Using Azure Active Directory for Single Sign On with Yammer

    This is a pretty interesting topic that I think is going to be gaining momentum moving forward. As many of you know, when you create a new o365 tenant you automatically get an Azure Active Directory (AAD) instance provisioned for you at the same time. For those of you who have purchased an Enterprise...
  • Blog Post: Creating a Yammer-Centric Security Setup for SharePoint 2013

    Okay, I’m going to preface everything in this post by saying what I’m going to be describing is not what you would consider the most secure SharePoint web application in the world. If you are working with sensitive content then this is probably (but not absolutely) NOT the best solution for...
  • Blog Post: Using the Yammer API in a .NET Client Application

    UPDATE 12/17/2013: The authentication process Yammer uses to issue an access code changed recently. If you have been getting a 404 error when executing the 3rd line of code previously described below to get the token, then read the updated step 3 below and/or grab the updated code attached to this post...
  • Blog Post: Use Social Tools to Tell me What You Want to See Here Next

    Hey folks, I decided to try something completely new and different (on a few different fronts). I mostly blog about topics that I've seen come up with customers, or requests from folks that I know at work. I thought I'd give a go at harnessing the power of social media though to get ideas and suggestions...
