Microsoft Graph TypeScript Types

The Microsoft Graph TypeScript definitions enable editors to provide intellisense on Microsoft Graph objects including users, messages, and groups.

NOTE: The Microsoft Graph TypeScript Types Beta npm package and GitHub repo is now available. Imports from the microsoftgraph/msgraph-typescript-typings#beta branch will no longer be supported.


We recommend including the .d.ts file by downloading this package through npm.

# Install types and save in package.json as a development dependency
npm install @microsoft/microsoft-graph-types --save-dev

The following examples assume that you have a valid access token. The following example uses isomorphic-fetch and Microsoft Graph JavaScript client library -

import { User } from "@microsoft/microsoft-graph-types-beta";

import { Client } from "@microsoft/microsoft-graph-client";

import 'isomorphic-fetch';

const client = Client.initWithMiddleware({
	defaultVersion: 'beta',

const response = await client.api("/me").get();
const user = response as User;

Example of creating an object

// Create the message object

// Note that all the properties must follow the interface definitions.
// For example, this will not compile if you try to type "xml" instead of "html" for contentType.

let mail:MicrosoftGraphBeta.Message = {
    subject: "Microsoft Graph TypeScript Sample",
    toRecipients: [{
        emailAddress: {
            address: "microsoftgraph@example.com"
    body: {
        content: "<h1>Microsoft Graph TypeScript Sample</h1>Try modifying the sample",
        contentType: "html"

Example of using v1 types and beta types together

  "devDependencies": {
    // import published v1.0 types with a version from NPM
    "@microsoft/microsoft-graph-types": "^0.4.0",
    // import beta types with a version from NPM
    "@microsoft/microsoft-graph-types-beta": "^0.1.0-preview"
import * as MicrosoftGraph from "@microsoft/microsoft-graph-types"

import * as MicrosoftGraphBeta from "@microsoft/microsoft-graph-types-beta"

const v1User: MicrosoftGraph.User = {
	givenName: "V1 User"

const betaUser: MicrosoftGraphBeta.User = {
	givenName: "Beta User"

Supported editors

Any TypeScript project can consume these types when using at least TypeScript 2.0. We've tested including the types as a dependency in the following editors.
