team resource type

Namespace: microsoft.graph

A team in Microsoft Teams is a collection of channel objects. A channel represents a topic, and therefore a logical isolation of discussion, within a team.

Every team is associated with a group. The group has the same ID as the team - for example, /groups/{id}/team is the same as /teams/{id}. For more information about working with groups and members in teams, see Use the Microsoft Graph REST API to work with Microsoft Teams.
