What built-in role is required for a service principal to create an "APP Registration" ? I looked at the built-in roles and did not find one. https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/role-based-access-control/built-in-roles Any ideas ?

    Hi @Desmond Sindatry
    Creating an application registration does not require a built-in role, you need to grant the Application.ReadWrite.All application permission to your service principal, then use the unattended client credentials flow to obtain an access token and call the create application API endpoint.
