Microsoft Learning: Access Files with Microsoft Graph

Learn how to access files in OneDrive with Microsoft Graph.

I work with Microsoft Learning to publish & maintain multiple self-paced learning modules related to Microsoft 365. These modules are primarily used as self-paced study resources for developers preparing to take the MS-600 exam , the only prerequisite to achieve the Microsoft 365 Certified: Teams Application Developer Associate certification. This is one of those modules.

OneDrive is the files hub for Office 365. OneDrive enables users to access and collaborate on files no matter where they’re stored. Microsoft Graph enables developers to use a single API to work with the files in OneDrive. Files in Office 365 are stored in drives. Users can store files in a personal drive, their OneDrive, or in a shared drive powered by a SharePoint document library. In this module, you’ll learn how to access files in OneDrive, both reading and writing files, and how to traverse relationships between files and users.

Learning objectives

By the end of this module, you’ll be able to:

  • Demonstrate how to retrieve a list of files OneDrive
  • Demonstrate to download a file from OneDrive using a unique ID
  • Get a list of files trending around the signed in user
  • Demonstrate how to upload a large file to OneDrive
