How to Retrieve Team Name Using Tenant ID and Channel ID in Microsoft Teams?

abbas izadipour 185 Reputation points

I have a Tenant ID and one of the Channel IDs within that tenant in Microsoft Teams. I need to find out the name of the team that this channel belongs to.

I've been using the Microsoft Graph API for other tasks, but I'm not sure which endpoints or methods to use to get the team name from the given Channel ID and Tenant ID.

Could someone provide guidance or a code example on how to achieve this using the Microsoft Graph API?

Additional Info:

  • The application runs in a server-to-server environment.
  • The token the app obtains is authorized as a running app with the necessary permissions.
  • I'm familiar with making authenticated API calls.
  • I have the necessary permissions to access the team and channel information.
  • I am using Node.js for my application.

    Hi @abbas izadipour

    Sorry, I'm not an expert in JS, but as far as I know, you probably can't directly retrieve the team it belongs to based on a given channel id.

    The only feasible solution is to first get the team set, then iterate over the team set to get the id of each team, next pass the team id to get the channel set of each team, then iterate over the channel set to get the id of each channel of each team, and finally use these channel ids to compare with the current channel id, and if they are equal, return the corresponding team id and name.

    Hope this helps.
