To see which devices are using a particular monitor or keyboard, it can be very helpful if you can collect this information. In this blog I will show you how to do this with the help of Endpoint Analytics. You can then use this information to assign a driver to these devices or to trigger a hardware replacement. How you can automatically populate a group based on the output of an endpoint analytics script I explained in this blog post.
How to get the Hardware Id
Run the following command in a PowerShell session
Get-PnpDevice | Format-List
Search the hardware you want to collect and copy the DeviceID:
Insert the DeviceId or multiple DeviceIds into the array in the PowerShell script from my github repository:
Deploy a Endpoint Analytics Script to collect the values
First we deploy an endpoint analytics script to our clients to get the return value from the clients with the device manufacture
- Open Endpoint Analytics
- Click + Create script package
- Enter a name and click Next
- Upload the Detection script. You can find this script in my GitHub repository.
- Click Next > Next
- Assign the script to a group
- Create a schedule. In my case I select daily.
- Click Next > Create
You can see in the Device status view of the remediation script the result.
- With issues = device fount
- Without issues = device not fount
You can get the results also via graph:
How to fill a AAD group based on this value you can find here.
