accessReviewInstance resource type

Namespace: microsoft.graph

Represents an Azure AD access review recurrence. If the parent accessReviewScheduleDefinition is a recurring access review, instances represent each recurrence. A review that does not recur will have exactly one instance. Instances also represent each unique group being reviewed in the schedule definition. If a schedule definition reviews multiple groups, each group will have a unique instance for each recurrence.

Every accessReviewInstance contains a list of decisions that reviewers can take action on. There is one decision per identity being reviewed.
