Obtained access token from Graph then not being accepted ("forbidden")

I'm trying to obtain user presence information from Microsoft Graph

I've checked the Azure app I've set up with the appropriate permissions to the Presence info

I've then done the following to obtain an access token and that's successful

I'm then doing a GET request to Graph for my presence information using the received access token

When I execute the flow I get a "forbidden" error

I have noticed that the access token returned by the flow is shorter than the one Graph Explorer uses but don't know what I'm doing wrong

Did you ever manage to resolve this as we are having the same problem?



Good morning,


I had this same issue and was not able to resolve it using the HTTP connector.  However, I was able to resolve it by using custom connectors.  However, it requires a Premium Power Automate account.  Let me know if I can be of further help.
