Get signIn

Namespace: microsoft.graph

Retrieve a specific Microsoft Entra user sign-in event for your tenant. Sign-ins that are interactive in nature (where a username/password is passed as part of auth token) and successful federated sign-ins are currently included in the sign-in logs.


This article describes how to export personal data from a device or service. These steps can be used to support your obligations under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Authorized tenant admins can use Microsoft Graph to correct, update, or delete identifiable information about end users, including customer and employee user profiles or personal data, such as a user's name, work title, address, or phone number, in your Microsoft Entra ID environment.

This API is available in the following national cloud deployments.

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) AuditLog.Read.All and Directory.Read.All
Delegated (personal Microsoft account) Not supported
Application AuditLog.Read.All and Directory.Read.All

Apps must be properly registered to Microsoft Entra ID.

In addition to the delegated permissions, the signed-in user needs to belong to at least one of the following Microsoft Entra roles:

  • Global Reader
  • Reports Reader
  • Security Administrator
  • Security Operator
  • Security Reader

The applied CA policies listed in appliedConditionalAccessPolicies property are only available to users and apps with roles that allow them to read conditional access data. If a user or app has permissions to read sign-in logs but not permission to read conditional access data, the appliedConditionalAccessPolicies property in the response will be omitted. The following Microsoft Entra roles grant users permissions to view conditional access data:

  • Global Reader
  • Security Administrator
  • Security Reader
  • Conditional Access Administrator

Applications must have at least one of the following permissions to see appliedConditionalAccessPolicy objects in the sign-in logs:

  • Policy.Read.All
  • Policy.ReadWrite.ConditionalAccess
  • Policy.Read.ConditionalAccess

Note: Microsoft Entra users with any permissions can read sign-in logs in which their user is the actor signing in. This feature helps users spot unexpected activity in their accounts. Users cannot read CA data from their own logs unless they have one of the CA permissions identified above.
