Get started with the Microsoft Graph SDK for Android


Integrate the Microsoft Graph API into your Android application!

1. Installation

1.1 Install AAR via Gradle

Add the JCenter repository and a compile dependency for msgraph-sdk-android to your project's build.gradle

repository {

dependency {
    // Include the sdk as a dependency

    // Include the gson dependency

1.2 Enable ProGuard

The nature of the Graph API is such that the SDK needs quite a large set of classes to describe its functionality. You will need to ensure that ProGuard is enabled on your project. Otherwise, you will incur long build times for functionality that is not necessary relevant to your particular application. If you are still hitting the 64k method limit, you can also enable multidexing.

2. Getting started

2.1 Register your application

Register your application by following these steps.

2.2 Create an IAuthenticationProvider object

An instance of the GraphServiceClient class handles building requests, sending them to Microsoft Graph API, and processing the responses. To create a new instance of this class, you need to provide an instance of IAuthenticationProvider which can authenticate requests to Microsoft Graph.

For an example of authentication in a client application see the MSGraph SDK Android MSA Auth for Android Adapter.

2.3 Get a GraphServiceClient object

Once you have set the correct application Id and url, you must get a GraphServiceClient object to make requests against the service. The SDK will store the account information for you, but when a user logs on for the first time, it will invoke UI to get the user's account information.

final IClientConfig mClientConfig = DefaultClientConfig

final IGraphServiceClient mClient = new GraphServiceClient

3. Make requests against the service

Once you have an GraphServiceClient that is authenticated you can begin making calls against the service. The requests against the service look like our REST API.

Get the drive

To retrieve a user's drive:

    .get(new ICallback<Drive>() {
  public void success(final Drive result) {
    final String msg = "Found Drive " +;
    Toast.makeText(getActivity(), msg, Toast.LENGTH_SHORT)
  // Handle failure case
