Interacting with Microsoft Graph API via Synapse

Paul Hernandez starts a new series:

In this and the next post I want to show you how to connect to the Microsoft Graph API, request some data, process it and store it in a database using Synapse Analytics. 

This first post presents a sample use case, briefly introduces the Graph API, how to create a linked service to it, and how to start querying data. In the next post a sample  Synapse pipeline will be described. The pipeline grabs some data and copies it into some target tables. Finally, I will create a sample query to showcase the newly imported data. 

Because there’s some potential confusion to people, Graph API is completely different from the idea of graph databases.
