Unable to use access_token aquired from logged in your session id_token to consume graph API to get current user photo RRS feed

  • Question

  • As stated, tried to use access_token acquired from user session id_token. But when trying to use the access token it's giving below error message.

      "error": {
        "message""CompactToken parsing failed with error code: 80049217",
        "innerError": {


    Here is the Graph API URL I tried to pass the access token as a authorization header https://graph.microsoft.com/v1.0/me/photo

    But, the same graph API URL is working when tried from Microsoft graph explorer.

    Appreciate any help.
