    Hello @Purohit, Aahana , Welcome to Microsoft Q&A Platform, and thanks for your query.

    Could you please make use of ADT Explorer from the below page link? [Click on 'Download Zip'-->Extract the contents to a working directory]

    Please give it a try and let me know.

    Please make sure to clear any running code samples & free of cache issues if any from your browser.



    Please close all browser windows.

    Please run the az login command from a separate command-line-->which will open a new browser window and allow the registered user to log in-->Finally close the browser window after successful login.

    Please note that the user should have the right permissions., To give a user permissions to manage an Azure Digital Twins instance, you must assign them the Azure Digital Twins Data Owner role within the instance.

    Now run the command-line statement npm start from the ADT Explorer application folder, which will open the browser loading http://localhost:3000/

    Continue with uploading models and importing graphs as per the instructions.

    Please let us know if you need further help in this matter.
