A simple interface to the Microsoft Graph API. The companion package to AzureRMR and AzureAuth.
Microsoft Graph is a comprehensive framework for accessing data in various online Microsoft services. Currently, this package aims to provide an R interface only to the Azure Active Directory part, with a view to supporting interoperability of R and Azure: users, groups, registered apps and service principals. Like AzureRMR, it could potentially be extended to cover other services.
The primary repo for this package is at
https://github.com/Azure/AzureGraph; please submit issues and PRs there.
It is also mirrored at the Cloudyr org at

AzureGraph currently includes methods for working with registered
apps, service principals, users and groups. A
call_graph_endpoint() method is also supplied for making
arbitrary REST calls.
