Access AzureAD Profile Picture from MS Graph

IT Tech Consulting 1 Reputation point

I am an AzureAD Developer having a hard time with something I expected to be simple. I can not access any users profile picture, even my own from ms graph.

I have set Directory and User Read Scopes. Profile Pictures Do not appear in the AAD User Manager. My code C# can extract the Me (Signed-In User). Object from Graph. Inside the User Object response I recieve, Photo and Photos property are both null.

I would appreciate it so much if someone could help me or even point me in the right direction.

Thank You.

    Might help if you give us an example of which exact endpoint you are querying. The examples from the documentation work just fine for me:

    Do note that only Azure AD/OrgID accounts are supported.

    I have AzureAD Accounts with trying to hit

    I'm using the example ubiquitous:

                        // Get user photo
                        using var photoStream = await graphClient.Me.Photo.Content.Request().GetAsync();
                        byte[] photoByte = ((MemoryStream)photoStream).ToArray();
                        ViewData["Photo"] = Convert.ToBase64String(photoByte);
                        HttpContext.Session.SetString("PhString", ViewData["Photo"].ToString());
                    catch (System.Exception)
                        ViewData["Photo"] = null;

    I get the system exception everytime. In Graph Explorer, after login in as the AD User. Calls recieve:

        "error": {
            "code": "OrganizationFromTenantGuidNotFound",
            "message": "The tenant for tenant guid '734a0293-a586-44fa-b728-43b06ef11410' does not exist.",
            "innerError": {
                "request-id": "6864e68b-6eec-4aed-a14e-c29fdac626fc",
                "date": "2020-06-03T17:18:40"
