I need to check integrity of a file that I have uploaded using Microsoft Graph onto Onedrive/Sharepoint. Is there some checksum available via Microsoft Graph ?

Regards Allan

  • Is it correct to assume that you're hoping to compare such a target system checksum with a checksum you took before sending the file? Also, is this file a blob file, or is it being processed by Graph for data (which is really the entire point of Graph. Graph isn't about leaving the data alone, it's about making the data useful).

This information can be found in the driveItem resource. You request the file with drive/items/{item-id} and the returning JSON will have a 'file' part looking like this:

"file": {

The hash type is usually either SHA1 or SHA256.

A good starting point on how to retreive this information, is via the official documentation on working with files in Microsoft Graph
