Detect Errors from Intune Assignments: How to Export all Errors

Welcome to my first blog as a Microsoft MVP! This blog will focus on a script I created in response to a request from a member of the community who asked how to efficiently export all errors in Intune. Instead of manually sifting through numerous reports to find errors, my script automates the process with just one click. Not only does this make the task much more convenient, but it also allows you to run the script regularly to create a historical record or receive weekly error reports automatically. Since this request can be helpful for several people within the community I decided to create the script and blog about it.

How can you get the Script?

You can find the script in my GitHub repository

What is the purpose of the script?

This PowerShell script retrieves all failed assignments for a tenant using the Microsoft Graph API and returns the results as a csv file.

How does the Script work?

It is really easy you only have to execute the script, authenticate and than you will find in the same Folder two Reports:

  • appInstallationErrors.csv (All failed appinstallations per Device)
  • configProfileErrors.csv (All failed configuration Profile assignments)

How can I schedule the Report?

There are two scripts. One with User authentication to run locally on the pc and one for an Azure Automation. To schedule the report you can create a Azure Automation Runbook and authenticate via a App registration. Than you can add the content of the “Get-AllAssignmentsErrorAppRegistration.ps1” to the runbook.

How to create the Automation?

I hope I could help you with this blog to make your Intune environment a bit more stable and error free. You can extend the script with more error sources and also send the result to teams instead of an email or put it into a blob.
