Request body

In the request body, supply the values for relevant fields that should be updated. Existing properties that are not included in the request body will maintain their previous values or be recalculated based on changes to other property values. For best performance you shouldn't include existing values that haven't changed.

Property Type Description
contributionToContentDiscoveryDisabled Boolean Set to true do disable delegate access to the Trending API and to disable access to documents in Office Delve for the user. Setting to true also affects the relevance of the content displayed in Office 365 - for example, Suggested sites in SharePoint Home and the Discover view in OneDrive for Business show less relevant results. This setting reflects the control state in Office Delve.
