I recently wrote a sample for a WCF behaviour extension to allow you to consume an API in BizTalk if it was secured with Azure Active Directory.

In this video I am going to demonstrate how to extend that sample to use the same approach to consume the Microsoft Graph API from BizTalk Server. This approach will open up a lot of opportunities to integrate with things like Office 365, One Drive, Yammer, Skype and other services within the Office eco-system. And speaking of the Office 365 eco-system, if your company is looking to monitor the health of the cloud and easily generate reports then perhaps consider Office 365 Monitoring software.

In the video below we will look at a simple example of how to extract information for the authenticated user via the API. Once we have solved the connectivity and authentication scenario we open up a whole range of opportunities about how you can integrate BizTalk with the Microsoft SaaS platform. That means Software as a Service, a software licensing and delivery platform for those unaware of the term. Though it is really a case of crafting the appropriate JSON messages and ensuring you have the right permissions to do each action.

 I hope you enjoy the video and learn a lot about integration with Biztalk and Graph API for use with Microsoft services like Office 365. You can also find out more about the Office 365 unified API on this link: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/office/office365/howto/office-365-unified-api-overview if you have any further questions on that subject. Or you could leave a comment below if a question.
