Operations on the signed-in user | Graph API reference

Applies to: Graph API | Azure Active Directory

This topic discusses how to perform operations on the signed-in user with the Azure Active Directory (AD) Graph API by using the me alias. With the Azure AD Graph API, you can read and update properties of the signed-in user. You can also query and modify a the signed-in user's relationships to other directory entities. For example, you can assign the signed-in user's manager, query the user's direct reports, manage group memberships, app roles, and devices assigned to the user, and much more.

The Graph API is an OData 3.0 compliant REST API that provides programmatic access to directory objects in Azure Active Directory, such as users, groups, organizational contacts, and applications.

Important

We strongly recommend that you use Microsoft Graph instead of Azure AD Graph API to access Azure Active Directory resources. Our development efforts are now concentrated on Microsoft Graph and no further enhancements are planned for Azure AD Graph API. There are a very limited number of scenarios for which Azure AD Graph API might still be appropriate; for more information, see the Microsoft Graph or the Azure AD Graph blog post in the Office Dev Center.

Performing REST operations on the signed-in user

You can use the me alias to target the signed-in user. To perform operations on the signed-in user with the Graph API, you send HTTP requests with a supported method (GET, POST, PATCH, PUT, or DELETE) to an endpoint that uses the me alias to target the signed-in user, a navigation property of the user, or a function or action that can be called on the user.

Graph API requests use the following basic URL:

https://graph.windows.net/{tenant_id}/{resource_path}?{api_version}[odata_query_parameters]
Important

Requests sent to the Graph API must be well-formed, target a valid endpoint and version of the Graph API, and carry a valid access token obtained from Azure AD in their Authorization header. For more detailed information about creating requests and receiving responses with the Graph API, see Operations Overview.

You use can use the me alias to target the signed-in user. This alias replaces the {tenant id} and {resource path} segments in the request URL. When you send a request to the Graph API with the me alias, it derives the tenant and user from the bearer token attached to the request. For example, sending a GET request to https://graph.windows.net/me?api-version=1.6 will return the user object of the signed-in user.

You specify the URL differently depending on whether you are targeting the signed-in user or one of its navigation properties.

  • me targets the signed-in user. You can use this resource path to get the declared properties of the user and to modify the declared properties of the user.
  • me/{nav_property} targets the specified navigation property of the signed-in user. You can use it to return the object or objects referenced by the target navigation property of the user. Note: This form of addressing is only available for reads.
  • me/$links/{nav_property} targets the specified navigation property of the signed-in user. You can use this form of addressing to both read and modify a navigation property. On reads, the objects referenced by the property are returned as one or more links in the response body. On writes, the objects are specified as one or more links in the request body.

For example, the following request returns a link to the signed-in user's manager:

GET https://graph.windows.net/me/$links/manager?api-version=1.6

Basic operations on the signed-in user

You can read the signed-in user and update its declared properties by using the me alias. The following topics show you how.


Get the signed-in user

Gets the signed-in user.

On success, returns the User object for the signed-in user; otherwise, the response body contains error details. For more information about errors, see Error Codes and Error Handling.

Response List

Status CodeDescription
204No Content. Indicates success. No response body is returned.

Relationships between a user and other objects in the directory such as the user's manager, direct group memberships, and direct reports are exposed through navigation properties. When you use the me alias, you can read and, in some cases, modify these relationships by targeting these navigation properties in your requests.


Get the signed-in user's manager (object)

Gets the signed-in user's manager (object) from the manager navigation property.

On success, returns the User or Contact assigned as the user's manager; otherwise, the response body contains error details. For more information about errors, see Error Codes and Error Handling.

Returns 404 Not Found if the user does not have a manager assigned.

puts response.body

Gets a link to the signed-in user's manager from the manager navigation property.

On success, returns a link to the User or Contact assigned as the user's manager; otherwise, the response body contains error details. For more information about errors, see Error Codes and Error Handling.

Returns 404 Not Found if the user does not have a manager assigned.

Request

GET https://graph.windows.net/me/$links/manager[?api-version]

Parameters

ParameterTypeValueNotes
Query
api-versionstringSpecifies the version of the Graph API to target. Beginning with version 1.5, the api-version string is represented in major.minor format. Prior releases were represented as date strings: '2013-11-08' and '2013-04-05'. Required.

Other navigation properties

By using the same patterns shown above, you can target other navigation properties exposed by users. Some properties are read-only and others may be modified. For more information about user navigation properties, see the documentation for User.


Functions and actions on the signed-in user

You can call any of the following functions or actions on the signed-in user by using the me alias.

Assign and remove licenses

You can call the assignLicense action to assign or remove licenses for a user and to enable or disable specific plans for the user.

Change password of the signed-in user

You can call the changePassword action to enable the signed-in user to change their password.

Check membership in a list of groups (transitive)

You can call the checkMemberGroups function to check for membership in a list of groups. The check is transitive.

Get all group memberships (transitive)

You can call the getMemberGroups function to return all the groups that the user is a member of. The check is transitive, unlike reading the memberOf navigation property, which returns only the groups that the user is a direct member of.

Get all group and directory role memberships (transitive)

You can call the getMemberObjects function to return all of the groups and directory roles that the user is a member of. The check is transitive, unlike reading the memberOf navigation property, which returns only the groups that the user is a direct member of.
