    Hello Aggrey-Mills, Martin

    Unfortunately, there is no direct way to run an access review for only users in Azure Active Directory Identity Governance. However, there are a few workarounds that you can use:

    1. Create a filter for the users that you want to review.

    You can create a filter for the users that you want to review based on their department, role, or other criteria. Once you have created the filter, you can use it to scope your access review.

    2. Create a custom report.

    You can use the Azure Active Directory reporting features to create a custom report that shows the access of the users that you want to review. Once you have created the report, you can review it manually to identify any users who have excessive or unnecessary access.

    3. Use a third-party tool.

    There are a number of third-party tools that can be used to run access reviews for users in Azure Active Directory. These tools can provide you with a more comprehensive view of user access and can help you to identify any potential risks.

    Here are the steps on how to create a custom report to review user access:

    1. Go to the Azure Active Directory reporting portal.
    2. Click on Create report.
    3. Select the Users report type.
    4. In the Scope section, select the Users option and enter the filter that you created in step 1.
    5. Click Create report.

    Once the report is created, you can download it and review it manually to identify any users who have excessive or unnecessary access.

    I hope this helps!
