Family Engagement API

Enabling external developers to utilize the “Family Engagement Platform”

Technologies:

  • Azure API Managment
    • Api
    • Products
    • Subscriptions
  • Azure Function Apps, with httptriggers
    • Key vault
    • ADFS Application with Auth and setting of access in the Contoso AD
  • GIT
  • Web application
  • Azure DevOps
    • Piplines
    • Deploys

Repo in Azure DevOps
Connected to a Pipeline and Release
Deployes to a Azur Function App, With HTTP Triggers
Client Id and Secret is stored in Key Vault
Howto referance Key Valut value from Configuration
Created an AD Identity to talk to KeyVault
Key Vault
The function App is given access to the Key Vault
And the 2 values in the key vault

Contoso Domain

App registert for the function App to access the Contoso Domain

Permissions given for the app in App Registrations
You need to give Admin Consent to the permissions under Enterprise Applications

API Managment

Base information about the backend this api is calling. For now there is no authorization
The API is defined in API Managment (APIM)
Setting a parameter for all endpoints, the value is stored under Named Values.
The code value can be obtained from the Function App, using the Master key you can use the same Code for all functions in that app.
Define the products that should be available in the API
Create a user that is given a way to access your API
Her we can see that the user Kai has been granted access to the product Family

Then we wil try to call the API

This is about it, now we have an API exposed through APIM backed by a Function App reacting on HTTPTriggers.

The function app uses the Graph API to read Groups and Members in the Contoso domain from the Slevik Vel dominan.

We are wrapping Groups and Users as Family and Family Members.

External Apps

The Family Engagement API is available for remote applications and apps that want to develop and use the family engagement platform. As an example: The family engagement web application is intend to use the API to fetch family members and calendar events from the Microsoft Graph API and statistics from The Family Graph API.

CI/CD

Family engagement APP inside Microsoft Teams

Family engagement APP from browser

We also created a React app based on Fluent UI (microsoft.com)
