SharePoint PnP Webcast – Using MSGraphClient within SharePoint Framework

In this PnP Webcast, we concentrated on how to use MSGraphClient component in the SharePoint Framework. Starting from the SharePoint Framework v1.4.1, tenant administrators can configure and manage which permissions or scopes are available for 3rd party SharePoint Framework solutions. SharePoint Framework solutions can request needed permissions directly from the solution package. Tenant administrators will approve or reject these permissions either using PowerShell or by using modern Admin UI.

Notice. It’s important to notice that these Graph permissions are granted to all SharePoint Framework solutions as the permission grants are not solution specific.

Presentation covers following discussion points:

  • Steps on using MSGraphClient in SharePoint Framework
  • Considerations on using MSGraphClient – Things to be aware

Webcast demo shows following things:

  • Importing MSGraphClient to your SPFx solution to be used in the code
  • Using MSGraphClient in SPFx solution
  • Requesting needed permissions (scopes) using the package-solution.json file
  • Managing and approving additional permissions for SPFx solutions using new Admin UI

What is SharePoint / Office Dev Patterns & Practices (PnP) webcast series?

SharePoint / Office Dev Patterns and Practices

SharePoint / Office Dev Patterns & Practices (PnP) webcast series covers different patterns, practices and topics around development with Office 365 and SharePoint. The majority of the topics are valid for the Office 365 and SharePoint on-premises. Our objective is to release a new webcast weekly or bi-weekly with few slides and a live demo of the covered topic. All webcasts are published at the PnP YouTube channel with additional references to the existing materials.

PnP is a community-driven open source project where Microsoft and external community members are sharing their learning’s around implementation practices for Office 365 and SharePoint on-premises (add-in model). Active development and contributions happen in our GitHub repositories under dev branch and each month there will be a master merge (monthly release) with more comprehensive testing and communications. Latest activities and future plans are covered in our monthly community calls which are open to anyone from the community. Download invite from

This is work done by the community for the community without any actual full-time people. It’s been great to find both internal and external people who are willing to assist and share their learning’s for the benefit of others. This way we can build on the common knowledge of us all. Currently, the program is facilitated by Microsoft, but already at this point, we have multiple community members as part of the Core team and we are looking to extend the Core team with more community members.
