Difference between Microsoft Graph and Azure Graph

Telkom University uses the API service to handle users in Azure Active Directory, applications that use it are for SSO to obtain an Office 365 license and for E-Learning Application Login (CeLOE).


the main difference is:

  1. Azure Graph can only be used for / specifically for .Net applications
  2. Microsoft Graph can be used for a variety of application languages
