Microsoft Graph Data Connect pricing updates

Philip Li

Correction: This is a correction to the previous pricing update that was announced on May 1, 2023. On July 1, 2023, we are discontinuing the current promotional pricing of objects copied through Microsoft Graph Data Connect from $0.375 cents to $0.75 cents per 1K objects copied. We are no longer planning to offer tiered discounts as previously announced. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.

Pricing updates to Microsoft Graph Data Connect will take effect starting July 1, 2023. The following month, Microsoft Graph Data Connect will officially exit public preview and become generally available on August 1, 2023. This pricing update will apply to both new and existing customers. Microsoft Graph Data Connect consumption charges are billed monthly on a pay-as-you-go basis and are calculated per-1,000 objects extracted.

What is Microsoft Graph Data Connect?

Microsoft Graph Data Connect is a secure, scalable data service designed to help you quickly copy relevant Microsoft 365 datasets for custom analytics and insights into people productivity, business process, customer relationship, and security and compliance.

Updated Pricing

Starting July 1, 2023, we are discontinuing the current promotional pricing of $0.375 cents per 1K objects (50% off standard price). The updated pricing is $0.75 cents per 1K objects copied (see below),

Microsoft Graph Data Connect objects $0.75 per 1K objects extracted


“Get Started” Promo Pricing

Starting August 1, 2023, we are introducing a limited-time promo: the first 100K basic objects accessed per tenant per billing period will not be charged (estimated at $75 per billing period). Basic objects are defined as datasets generated from raw customer created content and inputs from Microsoft 365 applications and services.

This is designed to ease the process of testing and developing new analytical models. When your model is ready, scale the project up to consume more of your organization’s Microsoft 365 data. This promo will remain in effect for 1 year duration (promo expiring on July 31, 2024).

As part of this update, Azure Active Directory and Microsoft Group datasets are reclassified as “basic objects”. In addition, SharePoint datasets are moving out of private preview to public preview. This update makes AAD, Microsoft Groups, and SharePoint datasets uniform with other “basic objects.”

    This was a bit of a surprise this morning when I got a budget alert for data factory. I don’t think there was quite enough warning given to customers using Graph that BasicDataSet_v0.User would no longer be free with this change, thankfully we caught it quickly but I imagine there are others out there who will get some serious sticker-shock at the end of the month. I would definitely recommend sending an email blast out to anyone who is pulling the previously free Basic data sets and letting them know the bills will be piling up quickly.
