Current code:

public render(): void {
.then((graphclient:MSGraphClient): void=>{
  .filter('Department eq IT')

Fetching users detail through Graph API call and filtering users for a particular Department into web part in SPFx.

Using No JavaScript framework to build this web part.

You can try using filter like below:

.filter("Department eq 'IT'")


.filter("department eq 'IT'")


It is working fine for me:

enter image description here

Endpoint used:

https://graph.microsoft.com/v1.0/users?$filter=Department eq 'Finance'&$select=id,displayName,department

Try giving below permissions:

  • User.ReadBasic.All
  • User.Read.All

enter image description here
