    Hello @Saiteja Vangala · Thank you for reaching out.

    In order to successfully make below call, Graph Explorer must be connected to correct Azure AD tenant.

    For this purpose, you need to sign in to Graph Explorer by using Member user account in that tenant. To create Member user account for signing in to Graph Explorer, you need to navigate to:

    Azure Active Directory > Users > +New User > Create User and create a user with UPN e.g.,

    Once the account is created, sign into Graph Explorer using this account and make sure you have consented for below permissions to successfully call /directoryAudits.

    • AuditLog.Read.All
    • Directory.Read.All
