Get accessReview (deprecated)

Namespace: microsoft.graph


APIs under the /beta version in Microsoft Graph are subject to change. Use of these APIs in production applications is not supported. To determine whether an API is available in v1.0, use the Version selector.


This version of the access review API is deprecated and will stop returning data on May 19, 2023. Please use access reviews API.

In the Azure AD access reviews feature, retrieve an accessReview object.

To retrieve the reviewers of the access review, use the list accessReview reviewers API. To retrieve the decisions of the access review, use the list accessReview decisions API, or the list my accessReview decisions API.

If this is a recurring access review, no decisions will be associated with the recurring access review series. Instead, use the instances relationship of that series to retrieve an accessReview collection of the past, current, and future instances of the access review. Each past and current instance will have decisions.
