Microsoft provides a platform for building end-to-end solutions. This sample show cases how professional developers can build people centric, data rich apps that leverage productivity and business data from Microsoft Graph and Common Data Service. And how power users can leverage that data further to create apps, flows, and dashboards.

Microsoft Graph is the unified API for Microsoft services. That includes Office 365, Azure Active Directory, and many others.

Microsoft Common Data Service or CDS is a focal point for a business's data. Professional developers can write applications that interact with that data in CDS and power users can take advantage of PowerApps, Flow, and PowerBI to create apps, design workflows, and perform deep analytics over that data without writing any code.

Microsoft Graph gives you access to rich data from Microsoft services. Once you bring that data to CDS, you can combine it with other business data that your business depends on. Then you can build rich applications and workflows with easy to use building blocks (such as PowerApps, Flow, PowerBI) whether you know how to write code or not. So using Microsoft Graph and Common Data Service developers can not only build people centric, data rich apps but the app can be extended by power users who are not regular coders to have additional experiences.

    Hi folks,

    We have made the sample application shown in the video, along with related documentation, available on GitHub and you can find it via

    We encourage you to have a look into the details of how the Xamarin application calls Microsoft Graph and the Common Data Service and then read about how the related PowerApp, Flow, and PowerBI dashboard were constructed.
