Title: Setting Up Your Environments for Microsoft Graph Development

Abstract: “Microsoft Graph development in production is ok, right?” “Let me use the global admin account for testing.” In this session we will ramp up developers and admins on the preparation they need to configure multiple environments for Microsoft Graph development. This includes tools for testing APIs, accounts with a variety of configurations, Azure AD domain roles and policies, and more. Learn about potential blockers (and ways to avoid them) that customers and users may run into. Introductory experience with Microsoft Graph is helpful but not required.
