I have recently been trying to program against the Azure Active Directory (AAD) using the
Microsoft.Azure.ActiveDirectory.GraphClient library. Unfortunately this library literally has no useful comments to assist understanding or clarify parameters etc.. Let alone how best to use or implement objects and methods or what and why exception may occur.
Equally the MSDN documentation seems to be lacking in any examples and really has minimal comments (although I see it’s getting a bit better…I think).
To this end I have created a ‘wrapper / handler’ to simplify all sorts of AAD interactions called AADGraphHandler. It effectively will help manage the creation of the
ActiveDirectoryClient and a bunch of it’s operations. You can find this on GitHub at https://github.com/nrogoff/AADGraphHandler
You can get access to the ActiveDirectoryClient directly, and so any methods not covered yet. (e.g. Adding and removing roles to a user. Just not needed it yet!)

I finally successfully passed the three exams necessary to certify as a Microsoft MCSD: Azure Solution Architect (now becoming the MCSE: Cloud Platform and Infrastructure). \o/

- Exam 70-533: Implementing Microsoft Azure Infrastructure Solutions
- Exam 70-534: Developing Microsoft Azure Solutions
It was no easy feat, not least because of the absolutely massive number of topics that you need to learn, but also that Microsoft decided to update the syllabus’s of all three exams just as I was ready to take them (Nov/Dec 2016). Continue reading “My Microsoft Azure Certification Revision Sheets”
