Script to retrieve all the Office365 (Azure) Tenants an account is associated with

The Azure AD business-to-business (B2B) platform is the underlying tech that drives both guest access in Microsoft Teams,Office365 Groups and also other Azure resources. If your someone who collaborates across a number of different organization or potentially different Community or even school or university groups you might find your MSA or Office365 account starts to accumulate Guest access to different tenants. Depending on what type of access your accruing eg If it just Microsoft Teams access you will see your guest tenancies when logging on to Teams, another way is if you logon to the Azure Portal and hit switch directory you will get a list of Azure Directories your account has an association with. 

However and easier way of doing this is using PowerShell along with the ADAL, Azure Resource Management and Graph API's. I put together the following script that uses first the Azure Resource Management API to make a request that gets all the Tenants associated with your account (same as what you would see if you hit switch directory).


$UserResult = (Invoke-RestMethod -Headers $Header 
  -Uri ("https://management.azure.com/tenants?api-version=2019-03-01&`
  $includeAllTenantCategories=true") -Method Get -ContentType "Application/json").value

This returns all the Tenants associated with your user and a lot of information about the domains for the tenants your guesting into eg



The domains information was a little interesting especially seeing all the other domains people had associated in their tenants where I was a Guest. While domains aren't private information finding the bulk of domains a particular organization is associated with isn't that easy (from an outside perspective). For the rest of the script I added some code that would authenticate as a Guest into any tenants my account was associated with and then using the Graph API try to query any Teams or Office365 groups this account is associated with and then try to query for the last 2 conversation items in those Groups/Teams. The script adds information about the Groups to the Tenant object returned for each Tenant the account is associated with and then the conversations to each of the Groups in the object returned. eg so i can do something like this


I've put the script up on GitHub at https://github.com/gscales/Powershell-Scripts/blob/master/Get-TenantsForUser.ps1 this script requires the ADAL dll's for the authentication and it should be located in the same directory as the script is being run from.

Export calendar Items to a CSV file using EWS and Powershell

Somebody asked about this last week and while I have a lot of EWS scripts that do access the Calendar I didn't have a simple example that just exported a list of the Calendar events with relevant information to a CSV file so here it is. I've talked on this one before in this howto  but when you query the calendar folder using EWS you need to use a CalendarView which will expand any recurring appointments in a calendar. There are some limits when you use a calendarview in that you can only return a maximum of 2 years of appointments at a time and paging will limit the max number of items to 1000 per call. So if you have a calendar with a very large number of appointments you need to break your query into small date time blocks. In this example script I'm just grabbing the next 7 days of appointments if you want to query a longer period you need to adjust the following lines (keeping in mind what I just mentioned) #Define Date to Query $StartDate = (Get-Date) $EndDate

Downloading a shared file from Onedrive for business using Powershell

I thought I'd quickly share this script I came up with to download a file that was shared using One Drive for Business (which is SharePoint under the covers) with Powershell. The following script takes a OneDrive for business URL which would look like https://mydom-my.sharepoint.com/personal/gscales_domain_com/Documents/Email%20attachments/filename.txt This script is pretty simple it uses the SharePoint CSOM (Client side object Model) which it loads in the first line. It uses the URI object to separate the host and relative URL which the CSOM requires and also the SharePointOnlineCredentials object to handle the Office365 SharePoint online authentication. The following script is a function that take the OneDrive URL, Credentials for Office365 and path you want to download the file to and downloads the file. eg to run the script you would use something like ./spdownload.ps1 ' https://mydom-my.sharepoint.com/personal/gscales_domain_com/Documents/Email%20attachments/filena

Writing a simple scripted process to download attachmentts in Exchange 2007/ 2010 using the EWS Managed API

Every complicated thing in life is made up of smaller simpler building blocks, when it comes to writing a script (or any code really) the more of these little building blocks you have to figure out the more the process of solving a problem can become bewildering. The Internet generally provides you with lots of half eaten sandwiches of information something someone else has taken a bite out but a lot of the time half done, and as with any code its usefulness declines over time as new and better API's and methods are derived. In this post I'm going to go through a simple scripted process that hopefully covers a few more of these smaller building blocks that you might face when asked to come up with a simple costless solution to perform an automated business function with a script. So the process im going to look at is one that comes up a lot and that is you have an Email that comes into to certain mailbox every day with a certain subject in my case "Daily Export" this
