The Microsoft Graph is Microsoft’s service that lets developers get data out of its productivity apps like Office 365, mail, calendar, contacts, documents, directory, devices, and more.
You can use the Microsoft Graph API to interact with the data of millions of users in the Microsoft cloud. Use Microsoft Graph to build apps for organizations and consumers that connect to a wealth of resources, relationships, and intelligence, all through a single endpoint:
What’s in the graph?
Microsoft Graph is made up of resources connected by relationships. For example, a user can be connected to a group through a memberOf relationship, and to another user through a manager relationship. Your app can traverse these relationships to access these connected resources and perform actions on them through the API.
What can developers do with Microsoft Graph?
You can use Microsoft Graph to build experiences around the user’s unique context to help them be more productive. Imagine an app that can do following operations..
- Looks at your next meeting and helps you prepare for it by providing profile information for attendees, including their job titles and who they work with, as well as information on the latest documents and projects they’re working on.
- Scans your calendar, and suggests the best times for the next team meeting.
- Fetches the latest sales projection chart from an Excel file in your OneDrive and lets you update the forecast in real time, all from your phone.
- Build applications that autoschedule meetings, accounting for availability, out of office status, meetings rooms, and related documents.
- Helps you sort out personal and work information on your phone; for example, by categorizing pictures that should go to your personal OneDrive.
