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.Read More »

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 »
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 »
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 »

It is not always easy to reach users via email or other channels. When there are projects running to exchange e.g. smartphones or migrations from files from a network drive to an SharePoint it is hard reach the users and get an answer. Intune provides with Endpoint Analytics a very good on board tool to easily reach users via a user dialog. In this blog I will show how you can use this with the example of a smartphone exchange. The dialog and the method can be adapted to many other use cases.Read More »
Everyone who has enrolled a few devices with autopilot in his life and has encountered errors knows the problem that it can quickly be very cumbersome to find the problem why an enrolment fails. Especially when it comes to network endpoints that are not reachable it can be very time consuming to find them. To enroll a device with autopilot there are also some prerequisites that have to be fulfilled. To check this before the enrollment I have created a script that helps you to check these requirements.Read More »
It is always important as an Intune admin to have an overview of the environment. Intune offers a lot of reports but as we all know you don’t look into them every day. Isn’t it easier to get a daily or weekly message in Teams and see the top failed app installation. I have already released some blogs with the topic of detecting anomalies in Intune with the help of cognitive services. In this blog I want to show you how to send a report that is already available in Intune to Teams using Azure Automation.Read More »
Windows 11 has brought some changes to the Windows Explorer, including the way the context menu looks. By default, the context menu is reduced to the really necessary functions. This is sufficient for most users. However, if you often need functions that are not in the reduced view, then this can be a hindrance in the workflow. In this blog I want to show you how to get back the Windows 10 context menu with the help of Intune.
