List deleted items

Namespace: microsoft.graph

Retrieve a list of recently deleted items from deleted items.

Currently, deleted items functionality is only supported for the application, group and user resources.

Permissions

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.

One of the following permissions is required to call this API. To learn more, including how to choose permissions, see Permissions.

For applications:

Permission type Permissions (from least to most privileged)
Delegated (work or school account) Application.Read.All, Application.ReadWrite.All, Directory.Read.All, Directory.ReadWrite.All, Directory.AccessAsUser.All
Delegated (personal Microsoft account) Not supported.
Application Application.Read.All, Application.ReadWrite.All, Directory.Read.All

For users:

Permission type Permissions (from least to most privileged)
Delegated (work or school account) User.Read.All, User.ReadWrite.All, Directory.Read.All, Directory.ReadWrite.All, Directory.AccessAsUser.All
Delegated (personal Microsoft account) Not supported.
Application User.Read.All, User.ReadWrite.All, Directory.Read.All, Directory.ReadWrite.All

For groups:

Permission type Permissions (from least to most privileged)
Delegated (work or school account) Group.Read.All, Group.ReadWrite.All, Directory.Read.All, Directory.AccessAsUser.All
Delegated (personal Microsoft account) Not supported.
Application Group.Read.All, Group.ReadWrite.All, Directory.Read.All

HTTP request

GET /directory/deleteditems/microsoft.graph.application

This API currently supports retrieving object types of groups (microsoft.graph.group) or users (microsoft.graph.user) from deleted items. The type is specified as a required part of the URI. Calling GET /directory/deletedItems without a type is not supported.
