Using Graph to update Planner 'owner'

Been trying to use the HTTP connector and graph with delegated API permissions to update the owner of a Plan.
According to the docs it looks to me like it should be possible:

But I am getting the following error:
Schema validation has failed. Validation for field 'ContainerId', on entity 'Plan' has failed: This field is read only and cannot be changed.

The request looks as follows:

Running the same request as above but updating the 'title' instead of 'owner' works.

I am owner of both of the 365 groups, the current one and the one I am trying to move it to.

Hi @snorf,


Don't know if it helps. But I can reproduce your issue in Graph Explorer as well. So, it feels like a bug or the documentation needs some clarification 😁



It looks like it simply cannot be updated, according to this:

owner (deprecated)StringUse the container property instead. ID of the group that owns the plan. After it is set, this property can’t be updated. This property will not return a valid group ID if the container of the plan is not a group.
