Access_token is getting truncated when making a graph API call inside Azure function

markhilton 0 Reputation points

I am trying to get Azure AD users via Graph API using Azure function

First I try to get token

$response = $Invoke-RestMethod -Method Post -Uri $tokenUrl -ContentType "application/x-www-form-urlencoded" -Body $body
Write-Host "response $response.access_token"

Token I am getting printed is getting truncated and not the complete token. However from postman I am receiving the complete token.

I also tried "select-object", but even that is also providing same truncated output

$response = Invoke-RestMethod -Method Post -Uri $tokenUrl -ContentType "application/x-www-form-urlencoded" -Body $body | Select-Object -ExpandProperty access_token
    Write-Host "response $response" 

Can you let me know how to get the complete token

    Hi @markhilton

    Refer to the sample script below and it should work for you.

    #region Authentication
    #We use the client credentials flow as an example. For production use, REPLACE the code below with your preferred auth method. NEVER STORE CREDENTIALS IN PLAIN TEXT!!!
    #Variables to configure
    $tenantID = "" #your tenantID or tenant root domain
    $appID = "xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx" #the GUID of your app.
    $client_secret = "verylongsecurestring" #client secret for the app
    #Prepare token request
    $url = '' + $tenantId + '/oauth2/v2.0/token'
    $body = @{
        grant_type = "client_credentials"
        client_id = $appID
        client_secret = $client_secret
        scope = ""
    #Obtain the token
    Write-Verbose "Authenticating..."
    try { $tokenRequest = Invoke-WebRequest -Method Post -Uri $url -ContentType "application/x-www-form-urlencoded" -Body $body -UseBasicParsing -ErrorAction Stop }
    catch { Write-Host "Unable to obtain access token, aborting..."; return }
    $token = ($tokenRequest.Content | ConvertFrom-Json).access_token
    Write-Host $token

    Print token:
