Description

Read properties and relationships of the user object.

Examples

Example 1: Get the list of all the users

Connect-MgGraph -Scopes 'User.Read.All'
Get-MgUser -All | Format-List  ID, DisplayName, Mail, UserPrincipalName

Id                : e4e2b110-8d4f-434f-a990-7cd63e23aed6
DisplayName       : Kristi Laar
Mail              : Adams@contoso.com

Example 2: Get a user by Id

Connect-MgGraph -Scopes 'User.Read.All'
Get-MgUser -UserId 'e4e2b110-8d4f-434f-a990-7cd63e23aed6' | 
  Format-List  ID, DisplayName, Mail, UserPrincipalName

Id                : e4e2b110-8d4f-434f-a990-7cd63e23aed6

Example 3: Get a count of all users

Connect-MgGraph -Scopes 'User.Read.All'
Get-MgUser -Count userCount -ConsistencyLevel eventual

Id                                   DisplayName              Mail                           UserPrincipalName

The example gets a list of all users. The $userCount variable contains the count of the objects in the result. Advanced query requires the ConsistencyLevel parameter set to eventual and the Count parameter in the command. For more information about ConsistencyLevel and Count, see Advanced query capabilities on Azure AD directory objects.

To consent to any of these permissions run Connect-MgGraph -Scopes Permission. For example, Connect-MgGraph -Scopes User.ReadBasic.All, User.Read.All.

Example 4: Use -Filter and -Top to get one user with a display name that starts with 'a' including a count of returned objects

Connect-MgGraph -Scopes 'User.Read.All'
Get-MgUser -ConsistencyLevel eventual -Count userCount -Filter "startsWith(DisplayName, 'a')" -Top 1

Id                                   DisplayName   Mail                               UserPrincipalName                  UserType

This example returns the top 1 users with the display name starting with 'a'. The $userCount variable contains the count of the objects in the result. Advanced query requires the ConsistencyLevel parameter set to eventual and the Count parameter in the command.

To consent to any of these permissions run Connect-MgGraph -Scopes Permission. For example, Connect-MgGraph -Scopes User.ReadBasic.All, User.Read.All.

Example 5: Use -Search to get all the users whose display name contains 'Conf' including a count of the returned users

Connect-MgGraph -Scopes 'User.Read.All'
Get-MgUser -ConsistencyLevel eventual -Count userCount -Search '"DisplayName:Conf"'
