[MSDN Redirect] Obtaining password in Graph API

KetanChawda-MSFT 1 Reputation point Microsoft Employee

Hi Team,

I would like to know why we do not have any API exposed to obtain user current password in Graph API.

Many suggested that it is less secure, but Why do we have the option of validating Current Password in windows login while changing password but not in Graph API?

Does Microsoft uses something else other than Graph API to accomplish this.

    Unfortunately, there is no current Microsoft API which gives you the current password. The only thing available is passwordProfile which can help you to reset any user's password. Refer to the passwordProfile documentation.
    I also suggest you to please submit a new feature request in Microsoft Graph Uservoice so that other community members can upvote and the product team can plan to take up in any future releases.
