Get all your Azure Enterprise Apps with Owner and Usage Count

Recently I prepared an au2mator Solution to Self Service Azure App Registrations and Enterprise App Management. So I decided to show you a Report of your Enterprise Apps, Owners, and Usage Count with the Logins. So you can easily see which Apps are not used anymore.


First, we need to create an Azure App to provide all permissions required.

MS Graph References:

Create an Azure App Registration and add the following GRAPH API Application Permissions

  • Application.ReadWrite.All
  • Directory.Read.All
  • Directory.ReadWrite.All
  • AuditLog.Read.All

Create a Secret and copy the Value

If your are not familiar with Azur eapp Regs, and how als this work together, see my Blogs Post for Details:

Part 4 – this one – Use Microsoft Graph API with PowerShell – Part 4 » TechGuy

With all those information, we can take a look at the Script

The Script

$clientID = 'yourClientID'
$tenantId = 'yourTenantID'
$Clientsecret = 'yourSecret'

$BaseURL = ""

#Enter the Timefram in Days for the Usage
$TimeFrameInDays = 30

#Build a Dateformat for the Filter
$TimeFrameDate = Get-Date -format yyyy-MM-dd  ((Get-Date).AddDays(-$TimeFrameInDays))

#Build Array to store PSCustomObject
$Array = @()

#Auth MS Graph API and Get Header
$tokenBody = @{  
    Grant_Type    = "client_credentials"  
    Scope         = ""  
    Client_Id     = $clientID  
    Client_Secret = $Clientsecret  
$tokenResponse = Invoke-RestMethod -Uri "$tenantID/oauth2/v2.0/token" -Method POST -Body $tokenBody  
$headers = @{
    "Authorization" = "Bearer $($tokenResponse.access_token)"
    "Content-type"  = "application/json"

#Get all Enterprise Apps
$URLGetApplications = "$BaseURL/applications"

$Applications = Invoke-RestMethod -Method GET -Uri $URLGetApplications -Headers $headers

foreach ($App in $Applications.value) {
    #Get Sign In/Usage
    $SignIns = Invoke-RestMethod -Method GET  -Uri "`$filter=appid eq '$($App.appId)' and createdDateTime gt $TimeFrameDate" -Headers $headers
    Start-Sleep -Seconds 1

    #Get Owners
    $URLGetOwner = "$BaseURL/applications/$($"
    $Owner = Invoke-RestMethod -Method GET -Uri $URLGetOwner -Headers $headers
    if ($Owner) {
        foreach ($O in $Owner.value) {

            $Array += [PSCustomObject]@{
                "App ID"           = $
                "App AppID"        = $App.appId
                "App Name"         = $App.displayName
                "Owner UPN"        = $o.userprincipalname
                "Owner Name"       = $o.displayName
                "Owner ID"         = $
                "Usage Count"      = ($SignIns.value ).count

    else {
        $Array += [PSCustomObject]@{
            "App ID"           = $
            "App AppID"        = $App.appId
            "App Name"         = $App.displayName
            "Owner UPN"        = "NONE"
            "Owner Name"       = "NONE"
            "Owner ID"         = "NONE"
            "Usage Count"      = ($SignIns.value ).count

$Array | Select-Object -Property "App Name", "Owner UPN", "Usage Count" | Sort-Object -Property "Usage Count" -Descending

The Result

You will get the following Result

  1. Will this limit to 100 apps? What do you do if you need to extract all apps?

  2. @Michael @Sven
    There was a great session presented by Robert Prüst at PSConfEU 2023 which I can highly recommend:
    Diving deeper in the Microsoft Graph API with PowerShell

    YouTube Recording:
    Diving Deeper in the MS Graph API with PowerShell – solving problems – Robert Prüst – PSConfEU 2023

    Among other, he illustrated how to deal with Paging and Throttling in Microsoft Graph.
    See code on GitHub:

    You can either make use of /?$top=999 (max. 999 – at least for /users end point) to return 999 users.

    Or you must deal with paging – the @odata.nextLink

  3. Works in PAYG but not in EA Subscription with same Permissions, maybe the api endpoint is different in EA.
    Greeted with 403 on EA while calling the /applications endpoint.(ln 40) , works fine on PAYG

  4. This is a great script and thank you for making it available.
    Having a couple of issues, I have been trying to work out. I have 250 plus apps, and many have no Owner. The first issue is, I am not getting all the apps from the cmd $Applications = Invoke-RestMethod -Method GET -Uri $URLGetApplications -Headers $headers. I added a $App.displayname to see which ones are being processed. Maybe half of the apps are getting processed.
    The second issue is that the output only shows the apps with owners. I never see an output of an app with no owner and displaying a “NONE” for the owner.
    Thank you for any help you can provide.

  5. We have more than 200+ apps in our environment. Saw the post to add ?/top=999 to I changed $URLGetApplications = “$BaseURL/applications to $URLGetApplications = “$BaseURL/applications/?$top=999” and still only get the first 100.
    Did I miss something or is there another way to get more than 100 apps.

  6. Also I got past the issue of the apps with no owner displaying by changing if ($Owner) to if ($Owner.value.userprincipalname -ne $null). Now the report shows the apps with no owners.

  7. Got it owork but only returned 165 out about 500 apps, still does not show “NONE” for apps without owners just blanks
