List registeredOwners

Namespace: microsoft.graph

Retrieve a list of users that are registered owners of the device. A registered owner is the user that cloud joined the device or registered their personal device. The registered owner is set at the time of registration. Currently, there can be only one owner.


One of the following permissions is required to call this API. To learn more, including how to choose permissions, see Permissions.

Permission type Permissions (from least to most privileged)
Delegated (work or school account) Device.Read.All, Directory.Read.All, Directory.ReadWrite.All
Delegated (personal Microsoft account) Not supported.
Application Device.Read.All, Device.ReadWrite.All, Directory.Read.All, Directory.ReadWrite.All

When an application queries a relationship that returns a directoryObject type collection, if it does not have permission to read a certain derived type (like device), members of that type are returned but with limited information. With this behavior, applications can request the least privileged permissions they need, rather than rely on the set of Directory.* permissions. For details, see Limited information returned for inaccessible member objects.

HTTP request

You can address the device using either its id or deviceId.

GET /devices/{id}/registeredOwners
GET /devices(deviceId='{deviceId}')/registeredOwners

Optional query parameters

This method supports the $search, $count, and $filter OData query parameters to help customize the response. OData cast is also enabled, for example, you can cast to get just the directoryRoles the device is a member of. You can use $search on the displayName property.

Some queries are supported only when you use the ConsistencyLevel header set to eventual and $count. For more information, see Advanced query capabilities on Azure AD directory objects.

When items are added or updated for this resource, they are specially indexed for use with the $count and $search query parameters. There can be a slight delay between when an item is added or updated and when it is available in the index.
