It’s a big day for us. The AAD Graph service is now Generally Available along with other Azure Active Directory Services. I am pretty sure all of you can relate to the feeling we have today – a big push with some crazy last minute issues culminating with what we feel like is a very nice release for our customers. We hope you guys love our services and continue to provide us feedback. The GA is just a milestone in a long journey. We will continue to update our service at a pretty quick cadence and we will keep updating you on our progress through this blog.
As you know, we have released a number of previews for Graph service over the past few months and a number of you have already used the APIs and provided us some great feedback. Please continue to provide the feedback and pain points and we will try to resolve them as soon as possible.
Here’s a quick overview of the changes coming with the GA release for Graph and the associated components in Azure AD. If you are a new customer and want to gain a deeper understanding of the AAD Graph Service, I suggest you to look at our previous posts. The changes for Graph service from the previous version( 0.9 version) to this version are minimal. The changes from 0.8 version to 0.9 version of Graph service were substantial and are covered in this post.
We have also updated our MVC Read Write, PHP and Java samples to work with the GA version of the Graph service. We also have some great documentation, walkthroughs etc. on our MSDN website to help you get started with Azure Active Directory and AAD Graph Service. Let us know if you run into any problems or have any feedback.
