user: invalidateAllRefreshTokens

Namespace: microsoft.graph


APIs under the /beta version in Microsoft Graph are subject to change. Use of these APIs in production applications is not supported.

Invalidates all of the user's refresh tokens issued to applications (as well as session cookies in a user's browser), by resetting the refreshTokensValidFromDateTime user property to the current date-time. Typically, this operation is performed (by the user or an administrator) if the user has a lost or stolen device. This operation would prevent access to any of the organization's data accessed through applications on the device without the user first being required to sign in again. In fact, this operation would force the user to sign in again for all applications that they have previously consented to, independent of device.

For developers, if the application attempts to redeem a delegated access token for this user by using an invalidated refresh token, the application will get an error. If this happens, the application will need to acquire a new refresh token by making a request to the authorize endpoint, which will force the user to sign in.


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

  • For an application to allow the signed in user to invalidate applications they've consented to: User.ReadWrite, Directory.ReadWrite.All, Directory.AccessAsUser.All
  • For an application to allow an administrator to invalidate applications a user has consented to: Directory.ReadWrite.All, Directory.AccessAsUser.All
