This access is normally achieved through a user or admin consent flow. This token is acquired by making a request to Azure AD's token endpoint and providing valid credentials. You can use the OAuth 2. For more information, OAuth 2.
For example, if you want to determine whether a user has access to a specific resource, the application can call the Check group membership transitive operation, which returns true or false. Differential Query : Differential query allows you to track changes in a directory between two time periods without having to make frequent queries to Azure AD Graph API.
This type of request will return only the changes made between the previous differential query request and the current request. Directory Extensions : You can add custom properties to directory objects without requiring an external data store. For example, if your application requires a Skype ID property for each user, you can register the new property in the directory and it will be available for use on every user object.
It supports a variety of client app types, including:. Both delegated and application permissions represent a privilege exposed by the Azure AD Graph API and can be requested by client applications through application registration permissions features in the Azure portal. The following scenarios are the most common:. You may also leave feedback directly on GitHub.

You specify the version for a Graph API request in the "api-version" query parameter. For version 1. You can enter this URL in the address bar of a web browser to see the metadata.
The CSDL metadata document returned describes the entities and complex types, their properties, and the functions and actions exposed by the version of Graph API you requested. Omitting the api-version parameter returns metadata for the most recent version.
Azure AD Graph API common queries lists common queries that can be used with the Azure AD Graph, including queries that can be used to access top-level resources in your directory and queries to perform operations in your directory.
If you run Azure AD Graph Explorer against your own tenant, either you or your administrator needs to consent during sign-in. If you have an Office subscription, you automatically have an Azure AD tenant. Run a query : To run a query, type your query in the request text box and click GET or click the enter key. The results are displayed in the response box. For the purposes of this Quickstart guide, you can use the Fiddler Web Debugger to practice performing 'write' operations against your Azure AD directory.
For example, you can get and upload a user's profile photo which is not possible with Azure AD Graph Explorer. For more information, see Authentication scenarios for Azure AD. Since you want to create a new security group, select Post as the HTTP method from the pull-down menu. For more information about creating groups, see Create Group.

When the Register an application page appears, enter your application's registration information:. On the app Overview page, find the Application client ID value and record it for later.
Record this value for later. Select the Add a scope button to display the Add a scope page. Then create a new scope that's supported by the API for example, Files.
Finally, select the Add scope button to create the scope. Repeat this step to add all scopes supported by your API.
Calling an ASP.NET Core Web API from a WPF application using Azure AD V2
Under Add a client secretprovide a Description. Choose when the key should expire, and select Add. Now that you have registered two applications to represent the API and the Developer Console, you need to grant permissions to allow the client-app to call the backend-app.
Go to the Azure portal to grant permissions to your client application. Choose your client app. Then in the list of pages for the app, select API permissions.
Under Delegated Permissionsselect the appropriate permissions to your backend-app, then select Add permissions. At this point, you have created your applications in Azure AD, and have granted proper permissions to allow the client-app to call the backend-app.
In this example, the Developer Console is the client-app. The following steps describe how to enable OAuth 2.
The Client registration page URL points to a page that users can use to create and configure their own accounts for OAuth 2. In this example, users do not create and configure their own accounts, so you use a placeholder instead. Retrieve these values from the Endpoints page in your Azure AD tenant. Browse to the App registrations page again, and select Endpoints.
Get started with the Azure Active Directory reporting API
Copy the OAuth 2. You can use either v1 or v2 endpoints.
However, depending on which version you choose, the below step will be different. We recommend using v2 endpoints. If you use v1 endpoints, add a body parameter named resource. For the value of this parameter, use Application ID of the back-end app. If you use v2 endpoints, use the scope you created for the backend-app in the Default scope field. Also, make sure to set the value for the accessTokenAcceptedVersion property to 2 in your application manifest.
Make a note of this URL. Now that you have configured an OAuth 2. The next step is to enable OAuth 2. This enables the Developer Console to know that it needs to obtain an access token on behalf of the user, before making calls to your API.
Under Securitychoose OAuth 2.For example, we will create a simple Azure Function who return the name of the logged user. Here is the code:. Try to call the Azure Function from Postman you will receive a "You do not have permission to view this directory or page. So far, so good. But what are the parameters that we should pass to Postman to retrieve a token? First, we will use the Authorization Code grant type. When you select this grant type on Postman, you will see that the following parameters are needed:.
To retrieve these information, open the Azure Active Directory blade and select App registration. Open your registered app and copy the value. Go to the Keys settings of the Registered App and create a new Password.
Azure AD requires that you pass the resource you want to access with both urls, so you will need to add? Otherwise, you could get a error message saying:. Moreover, you will neeed to set a Token Name of your choice and set Client Authentication to Send client credentials in body. We can leave the Scope and State parameters empty.

For a list of the high level gaps, as of Februaryplease see the end of this blog post for more details. At some point in the near future we hope within 6 months Microsoft Graph will support all functionality that Azure AD Graph offers and more. At this point developers building new apps or integrating an existing app with Microsoft cloud services will be directed to use Microsoft Graph in favor of Azure AD Graph.
All scenarios in these versions are fully supported in Microsoft Graph. For existing apps calling the AAD Graph 0. We urge developers to migrate to Microsoft Graph. Regardless, the Azure AD Graph GA endpoint will remain fully available for all applications including production applications.
We will continue to closely monitor this API, fix service issues and strive to continue to provide While we continue to support the Azure AD Graph client library, this is only available for. Net applications and it is maintenance mode. On the other hand, Microsoft Graph client libraries are available on multiple platforms and languagesthat enables you to have more choice in how you can use directory data in apps for your customers.
Sync from now and some other new capabilities like scoping filters track changes on one or more users or groups are supported in Delta Query. Organizational contact resource type Preview recently updated with a restructured resource, as we ready for release to GA, very soon. Management of applications including:. Assigning OAuth permissions to apps Application and service principal are available in preview. Extensive breaking changes are planned over the coming few months for application APIs, in preview, before this rolls out to Microsoft Graph v1.
NOTE: Not available for extending application or service principal resource types. This was recently updated to add otherMails, faxNumber, employeeId and other properties. With the exception of managing users in a B2C tenant see belowthe User resource in Microsoft Graph is now at parity with Azure AD Graph, and contains additional properties and capabilities like restoring deleted users over and above Azure AD Graph.
