Get calendar

Namespace: microsoft.graph

Get the properties and relationships of a calendar object. The calendar can be one for a user, or the default calendar of a Microsoft 365 group.

There are two scenarios where an app can get another user's calendar:

  • If the app has application permissions, or,
  • If the app has the appropriate delegated permissions from one user, and another user has shared a calendar with that user, or, has given delegated access to that user. See details and an example.

This API is available in the following national cloud deployments.

Global service US Government L4 US Government L5 (DOD) China operated by 21Vianet


Depending on the type of calendar that the event is in and the permission type (delegated or application) requested, one of the following permissions is required to call this API. To learn more, including how to choose permissions, see Permissions.
