The Microsoft Graph PowerShell SDK is a good way to execute Microsoft Graph API queries from PowerShell scripts. In this article, we explain how to use cmdlets from the SDK with a Azure Automation runbook. The example we use is a script to send a welcome email to new employees.
The Microsoft Graph SDK for PowerShell exists to help developers use Graph API calls from PowerShell. It works, but like anything in life, there's a right way to connect and use the SDK and a wrong way. In this article we explore topics like how to connect to the right tenant, how permissions are managed (or not), and why running Graph SDK cmdlets interactively isn't something you should do in production. Good as the SDK is, Microsoft has some big issues to solve to address some obvious security issues.
