Access Microsoft Graph API with PowerShell

Quick post on how to connect to Microsoft Graph API with PowerShell. Microsoft Graph API is different from Azure Active Directory Graph API. The fastest way to tell them apart is by looking at the URL
Microsoft Graph API -
Azure Active Directory Graph API -
You will need Azure Resource Manager Module. More information on how to install AzureRM:
AzureRM 4.4.0
Install and configure Azure PowerShell
To connect to Microsoft Graph API you need to register an App in AzureAD
·        Login to and navigate to Azure Active Directory > App Registrations and click New Application Registration
·        Input a Name, select application type as Native, and enter a redirect URL in the format urn:ReportingURN, click create. Note: For this script we do not have a specific requirement for the Redirect URI, the exact values doesn't matter as long as it's in the format URN:<Value>
·       Click on the App and choose Settings, navigate to Required Permissions, click Add and select the Microsoft Graph API
·       Choose Select Permissions and grant the App the necessary permissions. For the example below you’ll need Read all usage reports
·       Copy the Application ID and the URN

      After that use the following PowerShell Function to get a Token. Supply a tenant name ( and change the $clientID and $redirectURI to the ones you got when registering the App

Function GetAuthToken($tenantName){
    Import-Module Azure

    $clientId = "a11118ab-7777-9999-1111-2222b2b3333c"
    $redirectUri = "urn:appURN"

    $resourceAppIdURI = ""
    $authority = "$tenantName"
    $authContext = New-Object "Microsoft.IdentityModel.Clients.ActiveDirectory.AuthenticationContext" -ArgumentList $authority
    $Credential = Get-Credential
    $AADCredential = New-Object "Microsoft.IdentityModel.Clients.ActiveDirectory.UserCredential" -ArgumentList $credential.UserName,$credential.Password
    $authResult = $authContext.AcquireToken($resourceAppIdURI, $clientId,$AADCredential)
    return $authResult

Now you can access Microsoft Graph API. Here’s an example of a function obtaining Exchange Usage Report:
Function GetExchangeReport($tenant)
    $token = GetAuthToken -TenantName $tenant
    $authHeader = @{

    $uri = "'D7')"

    $report = Invoke-RestMethod -Uri $uri –Headers $authHeader –Method Get

    return $report
