Get calendar


APIs under the /beta version in Microsoft Graph are subject to change. Use of these APIs in production applications is not supported.

Get the properties and relationships of a calendar object. The calendar can be one for a user, or the default calendar of an Office 365 group.

There are two scenarios where an app can get another user's calendar:

  • If the app has application permissions, or,
  • If the app has the appropriate delegated permissions from one user, and another user has shared a calendar with that user, or, has given delegated access to that user. See details and an example.


One of the following permissions is required to call this API. To learn more, including how to choose permissions, see Permissions.

Permission type Permissions (from least to most privileged)
Delegated (work or school account) Calendars.Read
Delegated (personal Microsoft account) Calendars.Read
Application Calendars.Read
