GraphAPI Powershell - Delete Azure AD Device that is assosiated with non-existant autopilot record

ChristopherCoates 41 Reputation points

I have several devices that were previous part of our Windows Autpilot infrastructure. The Autopilot record has been deleted which should have removed the AAD device record (or at a minimum, allow deletion of the device)

I have tried to run several Graph powershell commands but the API keeps returning errors like device is not found.

Can anyone provide the appropriate commands to delete this record from my AAD.
