List only custom applications

Hi All!

In my tenant's app registrations page I saw there are applications that were not added by one of our users. Searching a bit, I found these are automatically added applications.

Examples for such applications:

  • aad-extensions-app. Do not modify. Used by AAD for storing user data.
  • SharePoint Online Client Extensibility Web Application Principal
  • SharePoint Online Client Extensibility Web Application Principal Helper

I want to list our tenant's applications. Currently I'm using this call:

The problem is that it returns also these 'automatically-added' applications, that are used by Microsoft internally.

My question: Is there a way to filter these apps or at least identify them somehow from the returned result?

Thanks a lot!

    Hi @JohnErvin-4462

    Sorry for the late reply.

    I've been looking for ways to filter "auto-added apps" and "user-created apps" for the past 2 days, but no luck.

    I suggest you open a support ticket with the Microsoft support team on this for better assistance.
