Microsoft Graph Data Connect

A secure, high-throughput connector designed to copy select Microsoft 365 productivity datasets into your Azure tenant.

Mine rich insights from your Microsoft 365 data estate

Microsoft Graph is your organization's gateway to Microsoft 365 data for productivity, identity, and security. Microsoft Graph Data Connect enables developers to copy select Microsoft 365 datasets into Azure data stores in a secure and scalable way. It's ideal for training machine learning and AI models that uncover rich organizational insights and deliver new value to analytics solutions.

Granular consent ensures that applications can access only the data that's essential to their function, and not more
Data governance lets developers specify a set of detailed policies to minimize compliance management overhead
Scalable data access delivers Microsoft Graph data to your app, on a repeatable schedule, with a few simple steps
Discrete Azure services allow developers to collocate an app and its data in a separately provisioned Azure instance

Access Microsoft 365 datasets at scale

Copy data at scale from a Microsoft 365 tenant and move it directly into Azure Data Factory without writing code. Get the data you need, delivered to your application on a repeatable schedule, in just a few simple steps.

Ensure that apps access only the data they need

Control how your organization's data is accessed with the Microsoft Graph Data Connect granular consent model. It requires that developers specify exactly what types of data or filter content their application will access. Likewise, administrators must give explicit approval to access Microsoft 365 data before access is granted.

Safeguard your data with built-in security

Deploy applications that access large datasets with confidence. Built-in security and data governance capabilities allow app developers to specify a set of detailed policies with which they intend to comply. Microsoft 365 administrators then review and consent to these policies, ensuring compliance.
