Delete oAuth2PermissionGrant (a delegated permission grant)

Namespace: microsoft.graph

Delete a delegated permission grant, represented by an oAuth2PermissionGrant object.

When a delegated permission grant is deleted, the access it granted is revoked. Existing access tokens will continue to be valid for their lifetime, but new access tokens will not be granted for the delegated permissions identified in the deleted oAuth2PermissionGrant.


There may be two delegated permission grants authorizing an application to act on behalf of a user when calling an API. This can happen when a user consents for the application on their own behalf (creating an oAuth2PermissionGrant with consentType Principal, identifying the user) and then an administrator grants tenant-wide admin consent on behalf of all users (creating a second oAuth2PermissionGrant with consentType of AllPrincipals).

This API is available in the following national cloud deployments.

Global service US Government L4 US Government L5 (DOD) China operated by 21Vianet


Choose the permission or permissions marked as least privileged for this API. Use a higher privileged permission or permissions only if your app requires it.
