API wrapper for Microsoft Graph written in Python

Project description


Microsoft graph API wrapper for Microsoft Graph written in Python.

Before start

To use Microsoft Graph to read and write resources on behalf of a user, your app must get an access token from the Microsoft identity platform and attach the token to requests that it sends to Microsoft Graph. The exact authentication flow that you will use to get access tokens will depend on the kind of app you are developing and whether you want to use OpenID Connect to sign the user in to your app. One common flow used by native and mobile apps and also by some Web apps is the OAuth 2.0 authorization code grant flow.

See Get access on behalf of a user

Breaking changes if you're upgrading prior 1.0.0

  • Added structure to library to match API documentation for e.g. client.get_me() => client.users.get_me().
  • Renamed several methods to match API documentation for e.g. client.get_me_events() => client.calendar.list_events().
  • Result from calling a method is not longer a dictionary but a Response object. To access the dict response as before then call .data attribute for e.g r = client.users.get_me() then
  • Previous API calls made through beta endpoints are now pointing to v1.0 by default. This can be changed to beta if needed with the parameter api_version in the client instantiation.
  • Removed Office 365 endpoints as they were merged with the Microsoft Graph API. See Office 365 APIs.

New in 1.0.0

  • You can access to Requests library's Response Object for e.g. r = client.users.get_me() then r.original or the response handled by the library
  • New Response properties r.status_code and r.throttling.
  • You can pass Requests library's Event Hooks with the parameter requests_hooks in the client instantiation. If you are using Django and want to log in database every request made through this library, see django-requests-logger.
  • Library can auto paginate responses. Set paginate parameter in client initialization. Defaults to True.
  • Better method docstrings and type hinting.
  • Better library structure.
