Get Basic Information For Azure AD Object Ids Using PowerShell

Quick summary

Get-AzureADObjectByObjectId -ObjectIds 00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000

Comma delimit for multiples.


If you’re working with Azure you may find yourself needing to get information about one or many Azure AD object ids. Here’s how to get basic information without having to specify the type of the entity:

  1. Install Azure Active Directory PowerShell for Graph if it’s not already installed. Install-Module AzureAD uses the PowerShell Gallery to install the AzureAD module.

  2. Connect via Connect-AzureAD. Note: The terminal in Visual Studio Code may have an issue here, if it’s not loading the login screen try launching standalone PowerShell.

  3. Use Get-AzureADObjectByObjectId -ObjectIds 00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000 where 00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000 is an example object id (replace it with your own, to add multiples delimit with a comma like -ObjectIds abc,def)

Hope that helps!
