    Hello @Robina , you are unable to delete your tenant because some enterprise applications, most probably Microsoft First Party applications, are still onboarded. Inspect the failing delete tenant requests using your browser developer tools and network tab. The response content should include detailed information such as the app Id or object id of the enterprise application(s) still present. Use any of those ids in tandem with a library like MS Graph for PowerShell to remove then and try to delete your tenant one more time. Keep in mind you may have to repeat the aforementioned steps several times depending on the number of applications still present.

    Removing service principal by object id
    Connect-MgGraph -Scopes "Application.ReadWrite.All"
    Remove-MgServicePrincipal -ServicePrincipalId # service principal object (not app) id


    Removing service principal by appId
    Connect-MgGraph -Scopes "Application.ReadWrite.All"
    Get-MgServicePrincipal -Filter "appId eq '<app id'>"|Remove-MgServicePrincipal
