By using the PowerShell module PSMSGraph we can interact with the Graph API in a more PowerShell friendly way. The MSMSGraph module is an API wrapper. It seeks to take the “foreign” concepts of REST and OAuth and make them accessible and usable in PowerShell. This module strives to make PowerShell administration and automation tasks via the Microsoft Graph API more like … Continue...
