This chapter has discussed the Graph API as a gateway to data and intelligence in Microsoft 365. This REST-based API allows access to Teams and other Microsoft 365 services. You can use the Graph API in any custom apps that require you to consume Microsoft 365 services and automate a team’s life cycle to manage team settings and members. We have discussed authentication and authorization in making Graph calls. In authentication, you must see whether any signed-in user is present or authenticated by an app. After authentication, authorization will determine whether the user or the app has permission to make the required Graph call.

In the next chapter, you will learn about the PowerShell Microsoft Teams module and options for managing Microsoft Teams and creating teams within it.
