List appRoleAssignments granted to a service principal

Namespace: microsoft.graph

Retrieve the list of appRoleAssignment that have been granted to a service principal.

App roles that are assigned to service principals are also known as application permissions. Application permissions can be granted directly by creating app role assignments, or through a consent experience.

Note This request might have replication delays for app role assignments that were recently granted or removed.


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) Application.Read.All, Directory.Read.All, Application.ReadWrite.All, Directory.ReadWrite.All
Delegated (personal Microsoft account) Not supported.
Application Application.Read.All, Application.ReadWrite.OwnedBy, Directory.Read.All, Application.ReadWrite.All, Directory.ReadWrite.All


The Application.ReadWrite.OwnedBy permission allows an app to call GET /applications and GET /servicePrincipals to list all applications and service principals in the tenant. This scope of access has been allowed for the permission.
