Azure AD Graph API reference
The Azure Active Directory (AD) Graph API is an OData 3.0 compliant service that you can use to read and modify objects such as users, groups, and contacts in a tenant. Azure AD Graph API exposes REST endpoints that you send HTTP requests to in order to perform operations using the service. The reference topics in this guide show you how to perform specific operations against the resources exposed by the Graph API. Many of the topics are interactive. They expose a Try It feature that you can use to change the parameters of selected operations and observe the responses that are returned from a demo tenant.
This article applies to Azure AD Graph API. For similar info related to Microsoft Graph API, see Major services and features in Microsoft Graph.
We strongly recommend that you use Microsoft Graph instead of Azure AD Graph API to access Azure Active Directory resources. Our development efforts are now concentrated on Microsoft Graph and no further enhancements are planned for Azure AD Graph API. There are a very limited number of scenarios for which Azure AD Graph API might still be appropriate; for more information, see the Microsoft Graph or the Azure AD Graph blog post in the Office Dev Center.
