Following the docs to Build Java apps with Microsoft Graph successfully and after that I wanted to add an api to Get user activities the api returns a success message

Nov 22, 2022 5:28:34 PM com.azure.core.util.logging.ClientLogger performDeferredLogging  
INFO: Azure Identity => getToken() result for scopes [user.read, mail.read, mail.send, UserActivity.ReadWrite.CreatedByApp]:SUCCESS  

then it freezes

for approx. 15-20 minutes then it returns this error

I think the this part Error message: {"Message":"Request limit exceeded for Authentication Failure"} of the error
is why I am getting the it I don't know why it is a authentication failure and yes I have read the docs and have given the permission in the docs.
This delegated permission is added to the app as per the docs UserActivity.ReadWrite.CreatedByApp
and the authorization token is constructed as the docs of the Build Java apps with Microsoft Graph

Microsoft Graph
Microsoft Graph
A Microsoft programmability model that exposes REST APIs and client libraries to access data on Microsoft 365 services.

    Hello @Youssef Gabr

    Thanks for reaching out.

    Please find my testing details below.

    Scenario 1: Without giving UserActivity.ReadWrite.CreatedByApp permission and using $orderBy query parameter - I'm able to reproduce the error message you are getting.

    Scenario 2: Post giving UserActivity.ReadWrite.CreatedByApp permission and using $orderBy query parameter - Results in Bad request, because $orderBy is not supported for this API. Refer this to check supported Query parameters.

    Scenario 3: Post giving UserActivity.ReadWrite.CreatedByApp permission and using $filter parameter on lastModifiedDateTime property as documented here. - API is working as expected
