How to create or delete a team using Microsoft Graph

Creating a Team

  1. PUT /groups/{groupid}/team

This request is used to create a team from an existing Microsoft 365 group which must have at least one owner. Ensure that the group has been created at least fifteen minutes ahead of the team creation time to prevent failure of the call.

Supply a JSON representation of the team object in the request body.


  1. PUT{groupid}/team
  2. Content-type: application/json
  3. {
  4. "memberSettings": {
  5. "allowCreateUpdateChannels": true
  6. },
  7. "messagingSettings": {
  8. "allowUserEditMessages": true,
  9. "allowUserDeleteMessages": true
  10. },
  11. "funSettings": {
  12. "allowGiphy": true,
  13. "giphyContentRating": "strict"
  14. }
  15. }

If successful, it will return a 201 Created response code and a team object in the response body.

Deleting a Team

  1. DELETE /groups/{groupid}

This request will delete the team and the group associated with it. The deleted Microsoft 365 group can be restored within 30 days, after which it will be permanently deleted.

Do not supply a request body, and if the call is successful, you will get the following response.

  1. HTTP/1.1 204 No Content
