identity resource type

Namespace: microsoft.graph

Represents an identity of an actor. For example, an actor can be a user, device, or application.

In some circumstances, the unique identifier for the actor might not be available. In this case, the displayName property for the identity is returned, but the id property will be missing from the resource.


Property Type Description
displayName String The display name of the identity. The display name might not always be available or up to date. For example, if a user changes their display name, the API might show the new value in a future response, but the items associated with the user won't show up as having changed when using delta.
id String Unique identifier for the identity.
