Published date: April 07, 2022

Note:Azure AD Graph will not retire on 30 June 2022 per announcement below. We are extending the retirement date for Azure AD Graph. A follow up announcement will be published before 31 December 2022 with more information on additional tools to assist you with your migration and an updated retirement date.

Azure AD Graph will continue to be supported but will not be receiving any new feature updates as we are investing our engineering resources in Microsoft Graph. We encourage you to update your apps to use Microsoft Graph as soon as possible. Please view details below to migrate to Microsoft Graph.


On 30 June 2022, we’ll retire Azure AD Graph. Before that date, you’ll need to update your apps that use it to instead use Microsoft Graph, which provides all of the functionality of Azure AD Graph plus new features, including:

  • A single endpoint for APIs from Azure AD and other services, such as Microsoft Teams, Exchange, and Intune.
  • Built-in support for retry handling, secure redirects, transparent authentication, and payload compression.

Required action

To avoid service disruptions, identify your apps that use Azure AD Graph and update them to use Microsoft Graph before 30 June 2022.
