Hello everyone, after several months of inactivity I would like to post regularly new content here on my blog. I start here with a topic which I have already blogged last year. This post is about how to restrict who can log on to on windows via Intune. Intune has a cool new feature that allows you to manage the members of local groups. In my previous blog I did this restriction with a configuration profile and put a AAD user into the local group via a custom profile and an OMA-URI. Now Microsoft has added a new CSP that allows you to do this in an much more elegant way. How to use this I explain now in this blog post.Read More »
