List directReports

Namespace: microsoft.graph

Get the direct reports for this organizational contact.


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) OrgContact.Read.All and Group.Read.All, Directory.Read.All
Delegated (personal Microsoft account) Not supported.
Application OrgContact.Read.All and Group.Read.All, Directory.Read.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 behaviour 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.
