Authenticating to v4 as a GitHub App

When accessing the Graph using an Installation token, the graph returns data. However, when using a JWT generated for the App as the bearer token (similar to v3) the Graph returns a 401 unauthorized.

This makes it difficult to use the graph across installations or even call the graph without first looking up the individual installations and generating seperate tokens per installation call.
