How can I get the "uid" (iCalUId) of a deleted event referenced in a calendarView delta response?

When an event is deleted, I get a calendarView delta response like the following:

{  
    "@odata.context": "https://graph.microsoft.com/beta/$metadata#Collection(event)",  
    "value": [  
        {  
            "@odata.type": "#microsoft.graph.event",  
            "id": "AQMkADAwATNiZmYAZC05MzkxLWQyMgAwLTAwAi0wMAoARgAAA_HWvQb_VDFDmeEbMo7WjVUHAOOOguis6mVJrB9JUhywi8QAAAIBDQAAAOOOguis6mVJrB9JUhywi8QABpRXkisAAAA=",  
            "@removed": {  
                "reason": "deleted"  
            }  
        }  
    ],  
    "@odata.deltaLink": "https://graph.microsoft.com/beta/me/calendarView/delta?$deltatoken=GilEv_jm8A4lKQ8gYeApGOApFsmaI3GWCiQifKpxYFjak-g-LAPh_dq1xj9-YR0SBqQIeQrEJ_U4-kTHt_eQwYJC93D5L3e-uk-W_8aA7cgafOs8v5e2CAaAVGKIdhyMbRlCf8SeRAxFlDew_h_vbp40t5t7gb0PJoYsnQUEM-w.GFpxaV1FYWUWwSfE8QUc4rQ28SvCBHEST0qIOC2aFl0"  
}  

Is there a way to get the "uid" (aka "iCalUId") of this event? I cannot hit the events endpoint as the object no longer exists.

    Hi @Agustin Barto ,

    Currently there is no way to get the iCalUid of a deleted events using Graph API. When an event is cancelled it is deleted from the calendar. So there is no way to list deleted events and there properites.

    you can submit a feature request idea via this support link to suggest tweaks to the document content, which will be monitored by Microsoft team and make the enhancements to Microsoft Graph APIs. I will also upvote for you.
