I have registered an API "msal-node-api" as well as a single page app called "msal-react-spa", but when I try to add permissions to that API from my SPA, I cannot find that API in the list in MyAPI:

    @Chockalingam, Saravana

    Thanks for the confirmation.

    I repro the scenario at my end and there are some recent changes to expose the API in Entra ID.

    You need to confirm the below changes to expose the API to the client app in Microsoft Entra ID.

    1.Expose the API to client apps by adding a scope.

    2.Add App roles to the API which Entra Id emit a role claim for each role that the user or service principal has been granted.

    3.Assign owner to the API which will allow users to own the application and expose to other apps.

    Thanks for bringing this up. I will work with our team to update the documentation for the same.

    Thanks,

    Shweta

    Hi @Chockalingam, Saravana ,

    Thanks for reaching out.

    You need to expose the API to client apps by adding a scope. By registering your web API and exposing it through scopes, you can provide permissions-based access to its resources to authorized users and client apps that access your API.

    Refer to expose the API - https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/active-directory/develop/quickstart-configure-app-expose-web-apis

    Once you expose the API , you can configure the client's permissions to the API.

    Hope this will help.

    Thanks,

    Shweta
