How to fetch Puid format of User IDs?

Susheng Shi 21 Reputation points

In my team, there is a need to fetch a list of users' Puid. However, I only see the OCID (guid format) is returned by the API.
For example, my ID returned by the API is d17e3936-4946-4950-8293-6a9a1c3b292a. However, what I am looking for is "1003BFFD8BC04959", which is widely used in our telemetry in Office product.

Is there a way to convert or fetch the Puid?

    Hi @Susheng Shi ,

    PUID/NetID was removed from Graph API and there are currently no plans on resurfacing it. The recommendation for apps is to rely on TenantID and ObjectID to identify users and stop relying on PUID/Net ID. I think there is also no way of converting guid to puid.
    Hope this helps.
