List domainNameReferences

Namespace: microsoft.graph

Retrieve a list of directoryObject with a reference to the domain. The returned list will contain all directory objects that have a dependency on the domain.


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) Not supported.
Delegated (personal Microsoft account) Not supported.
Application Domain.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.
