Get assignments of an device via Powershell

Via the MEM UI in the device overview you can see all assignments of a certain device. In the service release Service release 2206 even the function to see the group members of a device was included. But if you want to create automations it is helpful to be able to query this information with PowerShell. I have created a script at the request of a user in the community which returns this information to you.

Do you already know Intune scope tags?

Intune scope tags allow you to manage a large organisations IT infrastructure while giving each department/region/sub company/… the flexibility to configure their own settings.

Intune Quick Start Guide

Remote working is the new normal and this is exactly what has contributed to the spread of intune. Intune gets a large number of new users/devices every day and is also being developed at a rapid pace. Intune is an extremely good platform to manage devices regardless of their location and offers the great advantage that you no longer have to worry about an infrastructure as with Config Manager. However, this growth brings the challenge that administrators have to get used to a new platform.

In my blog you will find many deep dives or useful tools and solutions how to get the full power out of Intune. In this blog post I want to go back to the beginning. I want to give you a general overview of what Intune is and provide you with a free QuickStart guide for the first steps.

Intune mass export with the Graph Report API

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.

How to skip the ESP for a single app installation

Unfortunately, there is no setting in Intune with which you can determine whether an app should be installed during ESP (Enrollment Status Page) or only after ESP. Of course, it is a huge advantage to install as many apps as possible during the ESP or even better during the white glove phase so that you have a ready to use device after enrollment. But there are cases where it can make sense to install an app after the ESP, for example if the installation routine requires an interaction. How you can skip the installation of an app in the ESP I will explain now.
