Exploring Microsoft Graph APIs: A Tech Enthusiast's Dive into Messages and SharePoint

Hey techies! If you're into tech and always hungry for knowledge, you might have heard about Microsoft Graph APIs. In this series, we're going to break down the intricacies of this powerful tool, shining a light on the Messages and SharePoint APIs. Ready to join the adventure into the heart of Microsoft 365 integration?

Getting Started: Azure Apps and Permissions Demystified

Let's start with the basics. Before we can play around with Microsoft Graph API, we need to create an Azure app. No sweat, it's not as complicated as it might sound! Just swing by the Azure portal, set up an application registration, and bam – you've got a unique identity for your app.

Now, onto permissions – think of them as your app's backstage pass. We're going to choose permissions wisely, letting our app access only what it needs. We want our app to be the VIP in the Microsoft Graph party, right?

Bearer Tokens: The Hidden Key

Alright, with our app registered and permissions sorted, here comes the cool part – bearer authentication tokens. Picture them as the magic keys unlocking the treasure trove of Microsoft Graph resources. And guess what? We're going to show you how to snag these golden tokens.

We're talking OAuth 2.0 – sounds complex, but we promise it's not rocket science. This authorization code flow is like the golden ticket to Willy Wonka's chocolate factory. We'll guide you through the entire process – from asking for permission politely to swapping codes for access tokens. Once you've got that token, you're practically a Microsoft Graph rockstar!
