Follow these steps to create the app registration:

  1. Sign in to the Azure portal.
  2. If you have access to multiple tenants, use the directory + subscription filter in the top menu to select the tenant in which you want to register an application.
  3. Search for and select Azure active directory.
  4. Under Manage, select app registrations, then new registration.
  5. Enter a Name for your application and specify who can use the application.
  6. Select register to complete the initial app registration.
  7. Open application capture application (client) ID and directory (tenant) ID from app registration.

  8. Create a new client secret and capture client secret.


    Record the secret's value for use in your client application code - it's never displayed again after you leave this page.

  9. Create API permissions

    Select API permissions > Add a permission > Microsoft Graph

    Select delegated permissions. Microsoft Graph exposes many permissions,

    The grant admin consent for {your tenant} button allows an admin to grant admin consent to the permissions configured for the application.
