There are many ways to export information from Intune. For example, you can use Log Analytics, the Data Warehouse or the Graph API. But if you want to export several thousand devices or apps via Graph, it can happen that Graph has a paging. Paging means that you only get a certain number of entries with one call and then you have to make another call for the next range. This means for you that you have to write a script that loops through the pages.
Another problem if you want to export e.g. all Discovered apps you have to loop through all devices because this attribute is not shared in List calls. But if you have several 10k or 100k devices this takes a long time.
But there is a Graph Report API that is designed to export large amounts of data and provide it to you as a CSV on a really easy way. How you can use it I will explain in this blog.
With the service release 2211, microsoft has brought a cool new feature called organizational message. These are different ways to contact users via different good looking messages to improve end-user communication and experience. This offers additional possibilities to the existing Notification Bar messages from Windows 10 and older. These messages can be delivered as a popup above the taskbar, in the notification area or in the Get Started app.
A small disadvantage is that this feature is currently only supported only for Windows 11 devices.
Anyone who has been working in the area of device management for a while knows that a good inventory is a very important prerequisite for good device management.
A very desired feature from you is to have a custom inventory directly in Intune with which you can then continue to work in certain processes. This is exactly what Florian Salzmann and I have taken up and developed a solution for you that solves exactly this problem.
Since a few weeks there is a new icon in the Intune console and this is linux. The linux support is a very long awaited feature and there was good feedback from the ommunity. Currently the feature set is still a bit limited, there is currently only the possibility to determine the complaince of the devices and apply conditioanl access policies. But this is just the beginning I am sure that in the next months we will see more and more features and also config profiles, updates,… for Linux. But let’s take a look at how to enroll an Ubuntu device in intune.
