How can I see the permissions for a SharePoint Add-in App registration?

I once created it with https://contoso.sharepoint.com/_layouts/15/appregnew.aspx and gave it permissions with https://contoso-admin.sharepoint.com/_layouts/15/appinv.aspx.

Now I need to check what permission I gave it. I can get to the overview the link below, but cannot find the permissions.

To look up registration information for an add-in that you have registered, go to http://<SharePointWebsite>/_layouts/15/AppInv.aspx.

To see a list of registered add-in principals (permissions), go to: http://<SharePointWebsite>/_layouts/15/AppPrincipals.aspx

Official documentation: Retrieve add-in registration and add-in principal information

Additional Reference: How can I view a list of applications added by AppRegNew.aspx?

As far as I know, there is no way to check the permissions of SharePoint add-in. The AppPrincipals can only view the app you registered but cannot view the permissions of the app. If you forget what permission you gave, I would suggest you create a new one.
