Get component in the Microsoft Graph Toolkit

You can use mgt-get to make any GET query from Microsoft Graph directly in your HTML. The component does not provide a default UI and requires that you write a template.


The following example shows the use of the mgt-get component to display a user's emails. You can use the code editor to see how properties and attributes change the behavior of the component.

Properties and attributes

You can use several attributes to change the behavior of the component. The only required attribute is resource.

Attribute Property Description
resource resource The resource to get from Microsoft Graph (for example, /me).
scopes scopes Optional array of strings if using the property or a comma delimited scope if using the attribute. The component will use these scopes (with a supported provider) to ensure that the user has consented to the right permission.
version version Optional API version to use when making the GET request. Default is v1.0.
max-pages maxPages Optional number of pages (for resources that support paging). Default is 3. Setting this value to 0 will get all pages.
polling-rate pollingRate Optional number of miliseconds. When set, the component will poll the request URI for updates in the defined interval. If using a delta query, polling will always query the delta API. The template will only refresh when the data changes.
N/A response Read-only response from Microsoft Graph if request was successful.
N/A error Read-only error from Microsoft Graph if request was not successful.


Method Description
refresh(force?:boolean) Call the method to refresh the data. By default, the UI will only update if the data changes. Pass true to force the component to update.


Event Detail Description
dataChange The detail contains the response and error objects. Fired when the response or error change.


The mgt-get component supports several templates that you can use to define the look and feel. To specify a template, include a <template> element inside a component and set the data-type value to one of the following.

Data type Data context Description
default The response from Microsoft Graph. The default template is required to render the data coming from Microsoft Graph.
value Data item from the returned value array Use the value template instead of the default template when expecting the response from the graph to contain an array of items - such as messages, files, or users. The value template will automatically be repeated for each item returned by the resource. The value template will also start rendering the items as soon as they are ready (unlike the default template).
error The error from Microsoft Graph. This template will be used if there is an error making the request.
loading N/A This template is used while the request is being made.

Microsoft Graph permissions

For more information about permissions, see the Microsoft Graph permissions reference.


The control uses the global authentication provider described in the authentication documentation to fetch the required data.
