I am using PowerShell to connect to Microsoft Graph to create new users in Entra ID. I changed Graph version to too many versions but still got these errors. What is wrong with Microsoft? I am using Global Administrator account.

    Hello PHYO AUNG KYAW,

    Thanks for your question.

    THE Get-MgUser cmdlet expects and object after.

    The correct syntax for Get-MgUser is

    Get-MgUser -UserId '<id>' |

    see examples here: https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/powershell/module/microsoft.graph.users/get-mguser?view=graph-powershell-1.0#example-2-get-a-user-by-id

    This is same for New-MgUser:

    See usage here: https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/powershell/module/microsoft.graph.users/new-mguser?view=graph-powershell-1.0#example-1-create-a-new-user

    Please let me know if you have further questions**
