Cancelling calendar events via MS Graph no longer working

Steve Coombes 20 Reputation points


On of our applications cancels Calendar events via MS Graph. It has been working fine but has now started returning error 'Your request can't be completed. You need to be an organizer to cancel a meeting.'

The application has permission 'Calendars.ReadWrite' (type=application).

It is a Java application using the MS Graph client. As far as I know, nothing has changed in the app or in the calendars.

Kind regards

    Are you sending a delete or cancel?

    Delete is needed here according to the documentation:

    Cancel only works for the organizer:
