Microsoft Graph is the single REST API endpoint that gives us access to the whole of Microsoft 365 and the power of Search and AI. We'll look at how Microsoft Graph works, and how we can use it to build intelligent applications that give us access to users' mail, calendars, groups, tasks and intelligent insights as well as SharePoint. Then we'll see how we can use the SharePoint Framework's built-in MSGraphClient class to reach out to the Microsoft Graph and Office 365 data for the user. We'll also look at the PnPJS library which gives us a fluent-style strongly-typed wrapper library for the SharePoint REST API and see how it is being extended to support Microsoft Graph.

You will learn:

  • How to explore the Microsoft Graph REST API
  • How to build SPFx Web Parts that use the Power of the Microsoft Graph
  • Different development options and API choices
