How to use Custom Compliance Script + Example script
Compliance policies are essential for ensuring that devices meet all the necessary requirements set by the company, such as a minimum OS version. Previously, Microsoft provided predefined policies that could be used, but with the service release 2208, support for custom compliance checks was added, enabling the freedom to query everything on the device what you want. In this blog post, we will focus on how to create custom compliance policies for Windows.Read More »

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.Read More »
System Information and Self Service Tool
In this blog I would like to introduce you to my new System Information Tool. The System Information Tool is a software that displays various system information, such as the serial number, IP address, username and logged-in user, and many more. It also provides functions for troubleshooting and analysing problems with Intune Management and Intune Management Extension. In addition, custom scripts for self-service support can be added and provided to them user. The tool is thus a useful resource for users who need quick access to system information and assistance in troubleshooting problems.Read More »

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.Read More »

Intune DevOps Tools – Move objects from Dev to Prod Tenant
The more clients are managed in your tenant and the more people have contributor rights in your tenant, the more important it becomes to have good release management processes. In this blog post I would like to introduce you to my Intune CI pipeline that allows you to transfer configurations from one tenant to another. This offers the possibility that only a small number of administrators have access in the Prod tenant and all others create configurations in a Dev tenant and these are then transferred to the Prod tenant via a DevOps pipeline.Read More »
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.Read More »
