Microsoft Graph is a Microsoft API developer platform that connects multiple services and devices.

Initially released in November 2015 as Office 365 Unified API,[1] the Microsoft Graph builds on Microsoft 365 APIs and allows developers to integrate their services with Microsoft products, including Windows, Microsoft 365, and Azure.[2] At its Build 2017 conference, Microsoft announced it would use the Microsoft Graph to bring new functionality and connectivity between Windows and other OS platforms, including Android and iOS.[3]

The US Government's Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency recommends checking Graph API permissions for threat actors as part of detecting post compromise residual access.[4]
