Use microsoft graph to query user groups in asp net core 2 1

Introduction

ASP.NET is a popular programming language used for building web applications. In this article, we will explore how to use Microsoft Graph to query user groups in ASP.NET Core 2.1.

Setting up Microsoft Graph

Before we can start querying user groups, we need to set up Microsoft Graph in our ASP.NET Core 2.1 project. steps:

  1. Create a new ASP.NET Core 2.1 project.
  2. Install the Microsoft.Graph NuGet package.
  3. Register your application in the Azure portal to obtain the necessary credentials.
  4. Configure the authentication middleware in your ASP.NET Core project.

Once you have completed these steps, you are ready to start querying user groups using Microsoft Graph.

Querying User Groups

To query user groups, we will use the Microsoft Graph SDK. Here is an example of how to retrieve a list of user groups:


GraphServiceClient graphClient = new GraphServiceClient(authProvider);

var groups = await graphClient.Groups.Request().GetAsync();
foreach (var group in groups)
{
    Console.WriteLine(group.DisplayName);
}

In the above example, we create an instance of the GraphServiceClient using the authentication provider. We then use the Groups.Request() method to retrieve a list of user groups. Finally, we iterate over the groups and print their display names.

Filtering User Groups

If you want to the user groups based on , you can use the $filter query parameter. Here is an example of how to retrieve only the groups:


GraphServiceClient graphClient = new GraphServiceClient(authProvider);

var groups = await graphClient.Groups.Request().Filter("securityEnabled eq true").GetAsync();
foreach (var group in groups)
{
    Console.WriteLine(group.DisplayName);
}

In the above example, we add the $filter query parameter to the Groups.Request() method to specify that we only want the security groups. The “securityEnabled eq true” condition out all types of groups.

Conclusion

Using Microsoft Graph, we can easily query user groups in ASP.NET Core 2.1. By the steps to set up Microsoft Graph and using the GraphServiceClient, we can retrieve and filter user groups with ease. This allows us to build powerful web applications that leverage the capabilities of Microsoft Graph.
