SharePoint PnP Webcast – Using Office Graph from SharePoint Framework client-side web parts

In this PnP Web Cast we concentrated on how to use Office Graph from SharePoint Framework client-based web parts. Office Graph is intelligent grabric, which exposes personalized and contextual data of the particular user. These APIs are available through search. Office Graph information is also exposed through Microsoft Graph, but it does not require you to perform Azure AD based authorization, like with Microsoft Graph. This means that you do not need to perform additional authorization, when the provided APIs are used. 

Notice. When this webcast was released, SharePoint Framework was available as a Developer Previeaw release.  

Presentation covers following topics:

  • What’s Office Graph?
  • Office Graph vs Microsoft Graph from authorization perspective
  • How Office Graph is exposed for customizations?
  • Available Office Graph sample client-based web parts 

Web cast demo shows following details

  • Demo of available client-based web parts around Office Graph
  • How these web parts are being built?
  • How to access Office Graph from your client-side web parts

What is SharePoint / Office DevPatterns & Practices (PnP) web cast series?

SharePoint / Office Dev Patterns and PracticesSharePoint / Office Dev Patterns & Practices (PnP) webcast series covers different patterns, practices and topics around development with Office 365 and SharePoint. Majority of the topics are valid for the Office 365 and SharePoint on-premises. Our objective is to release new around 30 minute long web cast each Monday with few slides and a live demo on the covered topic. All web casts are published at the PnP YouTube channel with additional references on the existing materials.

PnP is 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 for 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 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.

If you have any questions, comments or feedback around PnP program or this blog post, please use the Microsoft Tech Community (SharePoint Developer group).
