$appRolesRequired = @(
$microsoftGraph = Get-MgServicePrincipal -Filter "appId eq '$microsoftGraphAppId'"
$appRoles = $microsoftGraph.AppRoles | Where-Object { $_.Value -in $appRolesRequired } 
$appRoles | ForEach-Object {
    $params = @{
        "principalId" = $principalId
        "resourceId"  = $microsoftGraph.Id
