I am using Microsoft Graph API in my SPFx website. I can successfully get accessToken using ADAL.js. I can create user, get users, get groups but when i am trying to add members in group it throws error of Unauthorized.

I had assiged full permission to app resource and my signed in user is global administrator.

With graph explorer same request is working fine.

All parameters value passes are true that I have verified.

private AddUserInGroup(httpClient: HttpClient, accessToken: string, objUser: IUser, groupId: string): Promise<boolean> {
    return new Promise<boolean>((resolve: (isAdded: boolean) => string, reject: (error: string) => string): void => {
        httpClient.post("/groups/" + groupId + "/members/$ref", HttpClient.configurations.v1, {
            headers: {
                'Content-type': 'application/json',
                'Authorization': 'Bearer ' + accessToken
            body: "{ \"@odata.id\": \"https://graph.microsoft.com/v1.0/users/" + objUser.id + "\"}"
        .then((response: HttpClientResponse): void => {
            if (response.ok)
        }), (error: any): void => {
            if (error.message.toLowerCase() == "failed to fetch")
            else {
                alert("Error : " + error.message);

If anyone knows answer then please let me know. Thanks in advance.

  • Where did you take the code from? If it's not your original piece of art, you need to add a reference to it. – moe Jun 28 '17 at 7:36
httpClient.post("/groups/" + groupId + "/members/$ref", HttpClient.configurations.v1, {

Post Url goes wrong. It takes SharePoint site url. So we have to write full url to call instead of starting /groups
