team resource type

Namespace: microsoft.graph


APIs under the /beta version in Microsoft Graph are subject to change. Use of these APIs in production applications is not supported. To determine whether an API is available in v1.0, use the Version selector.

A team in Microsoft Teams is a collection of channel objects. A channel represents a topic, and therefore a logical isolation of discussion, within a team.

Every team is associated with a Microsoft 365 group. The group has the same ID as the team - for example, /groups/{id}/team is the same as /teams/{id}. For more information about working with groups and members in teams, see Use the Microsoft Graph REST API to work with Microsoft Teams.
