Ms Graph With SPFx Part 1

Demo of get Group information using Ms Graph and SPFx

Business Scenario:
If we need to know that how many groups are available in directory or in which group i am member of.
We need to go to admin center and check there.Now think if we don’t have the administrator access to check the certain things in sharepoint admin.So we stuck to bottle neck or dependent to the person who have the admin access.
We can get group related information or membership information using graph API in SharePoint SPfx Webpart.We need to provide access one time then webpart can access the directory to get information using admin consented.

Step 2 : Create Service.ts file and add below methods to connect with Graph Client.
Methods to get the content from the directory using MsGraph
Click here to get source code for service

import { WebPartContext } from "@microsoft/sp-webpart-base";
import { SPHttpClient,MSGraphClient } from "@microsoft/sp-http";
import { arraysEqual } from "office-ui-fabric-react/lib/Utilities";

export class MsGraphService{

public static async GetOrganizationGroups(context:WebPartContext):Promise<any>{
    let  allGroups:string[] = [];
    try {
      let client:MSGraphClient = await context.msGraphClientFactory.getClient().then();
      let response = await client
    } catch (error) {
      console.log("MSGraphService.GetOrganizationGroups Error: ", error);
    console.log("MSGraphService.GetOrganizationGroups Error: ",allGroups);
    return allGroups;

   * Gets all the groups the me is part of using MS Graph API
   * @param context context Web part context

  public static async GetMyUserGroups(context:WebPartContext):Promise<any[]>{
    let groups:string[]=[];
    try {
      let client:MSGraphClient = await context.msGraphClientFactory.getClient().then();
      let response = await client.api('/me/memberOf').version('v1.0')
        .select(['groupTypes', 'displayName', 'mailEnabled', 'securityEnabled', 'description'])
        .get(); any) => {
    } catch (error) {
      console.log("MsGraphService.GetMyUserGroups Error: ",error);
    console.log("MsGraphService.GetMyUserGroups groups : " ,groups);
    return groups;


Step 3 : Create a interfaces to store the output attributes
Create file with name IGroupItem.ts and add below code in it
Click here to get source code

export interface IGroupItem{
  name: string;
  description: string;
  groupTypes: string;

export interface IUserItem {
  displayName: string;
  mail: string;

Step 4 : Update <webpart>NameProps.ts file with below code

import { WebPartContext } from '@microsoft/sp-webpart-base';

export interface ICheckGroupMembersProps {
  context: WebPartContext;

Step 5 : Create a new file with name <webpartName>State.ts and add below code
Click here to get source code

import { IUserItem } from "../../../../Common/IUserItem";
import { IColumn } from 'office-ui-fabric-react/lib/DetailsList';

export interface ICheckGroupMembersState {
  userItems: IUserItem[];
  columns: IColumn[];
  memberStatus: string;
  loading: boolean;

Step 6: Open .tsx file and import below modules.

import * as React from "react";
import styles from "../ReactGroupSamples.module.scss";
import { PeoplePicker, PrincipalType } from '@pnp/spfx-controls-react/lib/PeoplePicker';
import { TextField } from 'office-ui-fabric-react/lib/TextField';
import { DetailsList, DetailsListLayoutMode, IColumn, SelectionMode } from 'office-ui-fabric-react/lib/DetailsList';
import { CommandBarButton } from 'office-ui-fabric-react/lib/Button';
import { Spinner } from 'office-ui-fabric-react/lib/Spinner';
import { ICheckGroupMembersProps } from "./CheckGroupMembersProps";
import { ICheckGroupMembersState } from "./CheckGroupMembersState";
import { MsGraphService } from "../../../../Service/MsGraphService";
import { IUserItem } from "../../../../Common/IUserItem";
import { CSVLink } from "react-csv";
// Add below method to call service method from react file.

private _GetGroupMembers = (items:any[]) => {
  let userItems: IUserItem[] = [];
  let memberStatus: string = '';
  try {
    if(items.length > 0){
      let users = await MsGraphService.GetGroupMembers(this.props.context,items[0].id.split('|').pop());
      if(users.length === 0){
        memberStatus = 'The selected group does not have any members';
      {, i) => {
            displayName: user.displayName,
            mail: user.mail
  } catch (error) {
    console.log("CheckGroupMembers._GetGroupMembers Error:",error);
  console.log("CheckGroupMembers._GetGroupMembers Users:",userItems);
  this.userItems = userItems;
  this.setState({ userItems, memberStatus, loading: false });
