Hi Could you please provide a sample code on How to upload small files in sharepoint using C# SDK version Version="5.4.0". The examples I find mostly based on old version of sdks. in the below code I dont seemed to find Request() method on content object.

GraphServiceClient graphClient = new GraphServiceClient( authProvider );
using var stream = new System.IO.MemoryStream(Encoding.UTF8.GetBytes(@"The contents of the file goes here."));
await graphClient.Me.Drive.Items["{driveItem-id}"].Content

not sure If I am missing additional nuget package. GraphApi

I am anyway have written following code which uploads empty file without any content.

 public async Task<string> UploadNewFile(string driveId, string filePath, IFormFile file, 
            CancellationToken cancellationToken)
            using var mst = new MemoryStream();

            await _adekGraph.graphServiceClient.Drives[driveId]
                                  .PutAsync(mst, cancellationToken: cancellationToken);
            return "file uploaded";


This method is inside a service configured in Program.cs. I am using .net 7. Thanks for the help.

    Hi @Kapil Khubchandani , You can try to make one extra call to get new drive item

    var driveItem = await GraphClient.Drives[driveId].Root.ItemWithPath(filePath).GetAsync();
