List members of a directory role

Namespace: microsoft.graph

Retrieve the list of principals that are assigned to the directory role.

Note

You can use both the object ID and template ID of the directoryRole with this API. The template ID of a built-in role is immutable and can be seen in the role description on the Azure portal. For details, see Role template IDs.

Permissions

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