Removing a user or group assignment from an Enterprise application in the portal is as simple as adding it was. To remove a user assignment or a group assignment from an Enterprise app in the portal, sign into the portal with an account that's a global admin for the directory.

I've done that already here. After logging in, select Azure Active Directory on the left side and click on Enterprise applications. In our case, we assigned some users in groups to the Box application, so what we do to remove that access is simply click on the application we'd like to manage, select Users and groups and then remove our access. And there you have it. Removing access to an application is actually even a little bit easier than assigning it in the first place.
