Cannot retrieve list of tasks for a user except for me

Even I have consented to all the required permissions Tasks.Read, Tasks.ReadWrite, Group.Read.All, Group.ReadWrite.All, I am unable to get tasks for another user other than me. Does the API /users/{id}/planner/tasks allow to retrieve tasks for specified user?
I can retrieve the tasks for the logged in user , e.g. https://graph.microsoft.com/v1.0/users/me[@](/users/na/?userId=a28c79c1-c609-48db-b55f-1783d1187afb).onmicrosoft.com/planner/tasks , but if I tried to get tasks for another user , e.g., https://graph.microsoft.com/v1.0/users/testuser1[@](/users/na/?userId=a28c79c1-c609-48db-b55f-1783d1187afb).onmicrosoft.com/planner/tasks I get Forbidden - 403 .

    Hi @Reshmee Auckloo ,

    As per this Documentation currently application permission is not supported for planner tasks. And because of that we can not retrieve tasks for any other user. This Graph API /users/{id}/planner/tasks allow to retrieve tasks for current signed in user, here id is the current signed-in user's id.
