Is it possible to retrieve a full list of installed applications in a device using Microsoft Graph API for Intune?

Hello! I'm trying to use the Microsoft Graph API for Intune to retrieve a complete list of installed applications on a PC. Currently, I'm using the following code:

    def get_device_detected_apps(self, token, device_id):

        device_detected_apps = requests.get(

            '{}/deviceManagement/managedDevices/{}/detectedApps'.format(self.graph_url, device_id),


                'Authorization': 'Bearer {}'.format(token),

                'Accept': 'application/json'


        return device_detected_apps.json()

However, I've noticed that this API request doesn't return all of the installed applications on the PC. What can I do to get a full list of installed applications? In the page here (, it is stated that 'A managed or unmanaged app that is installed on a managed device. Unmanaged apps will only appear for devices marked as corporate owned.'. Assuming that this is relevant, how would I manage the status of my unmanaged apps? Additionally, is it possible to retrieve the installation path of each application?

    @Gordon Oh Thanks for posting in our Q&A.

    Honestly, I didn't find an API that can get unmanaged apps. Please note that graph issue is more related to develop scope. With Q&A limitation resource, it is suggested to create a Premier or Unified support ticket to get more help. Here is the support link:
