We are trying to call the update user microsoft graph api and when we are trying to use the parameter "forceChangePasswordNextLogin" we are getting an error “The property ‘forceChangePasswordNextLogin’ does not exist on type ‘Microsoft.DirectoryServices.PasswordProfile’. Make sure to only use property names that are defined by the type.“. Can we get some information whether we can use this password or not. Is there any other way to change the password forcefully?

    @Laxmi Prasanna In Microsoft Graph API, it is forceChangePasswordNextSignIn not forceChangePasswordNextLogin. Below is the call that you need to use for this purpose:

    PATCH https://graph.microsoft.com/beta/users/USERNAME@YOURTENANT.onmicrosoft.com

    Body:
    {
    "passwordProfile": {
    "password": "Passw0rd33333",
    "forceChangePasswordNextSignIn": true
    }
    }

    @Laxmi Prasanna , First of all I would like to know, are you trying to make a Graph call to Azure AD tenant or Azure AD B2C tenant to update the password?
    As if you are making a graph call to Azure AD then the attribute "forceChangePasswordNextLogin" is not present there. If you are using Azure AD B2C, then to change user password by using Azure AD Graph API, first you should be a global administrator in your tenant, and then you could use

    PATCH https://graph.windows.net/myorganization/users/{user_id}?api-version

    and then update.
    {
    "passwordProfile": {
    "password": "value",
    "forceChangePasswordNextLogin": false
    }
    }

    Hope this helps.
