Unexpected Response for Microsoft Beta Graph API

Haroon Rasheed 0 Reputation points

I am currently working on a product that uses the Microsoft Graph API to fetch Intune devices. To obtain all the details related to a device, we utilize both the v1.0 and beta APIs. Although the beta API is not recommended for production, the issue is that many features are not yet available in v1.0 and require the use of the beta API. However, the beta API often returns unexpected responses, with the most common occurrence being the 403 Forbidden error, even though the necessary scopes are included in the token. Additionally, 500s are also quite common, and I have not been able to find any suitable resources online that mention these issues.
I want to know, as a developer, how I can fetch details that are only supported in the beta API when there is no certainty that the correct response will be returned.

    @Haroon Rasheed, Thanks for posting in Q&A. When using the beta version of the Microsoft Graph API, it is important to note that breaking changes and API deprecation can occur at any time. Therefore, it is not recommended to use beta APIs in production applications. However, if you need to use features that are only available in the beta API, you can try using the Microsoft Graph SDKs with the beta endpoint for non-production applications. The method for accessing the beta endpoint depends on which SDK you are using. Additionally, when querying Intune objects in Graph Explorer, if you receive a 403 error, it may be due to insufficient permissions. In this case, modifying your permissions may resolve the issue.
