  1. Microsoft Certified Trainers(MCT) should have easier access to Intune while teaching classess that demo Intune

    I was asked by Intune support to post here. I am a Microsoft Certified Trainer that teaches the 20697-2 Windows 10 course. That course has a lot of Intune content. The course calls for teaching Azure, Office 365 and Intune. There is more Intune material in the course than any of the other cloud topics. As an MCT it is pretty easy to get access to Azure and Office 365, but VERY difficult to get access to Intune without having to go through support. And even after getting access, it is only for 30 days. Which means that when I…

    Hi, John, I totally hear you. I was an MCT before I came here, back in the old days of newsgroups – maybe we ran into each other in the virtual cafe. I’ve had conversations with the training group, and with the engineering group about the overall difficulty of labbing in the cloud environment. It’s not just the subscriptions, though that definitely a pain point. It’s also being able to reset to a clean environment without having to build it all from scratch every time. I don’t have anything to report, but know that I bring it up every chance I get.

  2. Task to reset local Windows user password to default

    It would be very useful, if we could send a task to a device (like reboot the device), to reset the password of a pre-defined local user. It should be possible to define the user (e.g. Administrator) and the password.

  3. Intune admin console fails to load in Edge browser - states that it needs Silverlight when newest version installed

    Title says it all.

    Runnign Windows 10 enterprise latest build, fully updated.

    Just downloaded Silverlight and installed it again to ensure it was up to date.

    Still getting the error that states you must have Silverlight installed.

    Come on guys.....this is silly.

    Yup. Edge decided not to support Silverlight. Intune admin console still uses Silverlight. We’re working on a change but nothing to report yet. I’d merge this into “replace Silverlight with HTML version” but you’re already a supporter for that one in the Ideas forum.

  4. GUI for Windows 10 Custom Polices

    Create a GUI interface with easy to use point and click interface to allow customization of Windows 10 policies for OMA-URI settings. Also have the ability to export/import these custom policies for easier administration.

    https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/mt126215.aspx

    There is no reason why a person should need to manually type these in values in.

    We understand that having full UI would be preferable, but the reality is this is the best we could do with the time and resources we had. We know that importing and exporting would also be better, and we’d like to do that when we get a chance. In the short term, it was important to get something, even though it’s not ideal. On the plus side, it’s now possible to copy and paste the URI paths instead of manually typing them in. We’ll watch this one and see how much traction it gets with the rest of the community – having lots of votes definitely gets more attention.

  5. Auto Enrollment based on Device and not user

    There needs to be a way to have your on prem AD joined Windows 10 systems be able to be auto enrolled to Azure AD / Intune with out having to login to every single system. Maybe group policy? Maybe some power shell scripts? Because right now Intune is useless to my organization if I have to login to every single 2000 systems to configure Intune.

  6. Set a Proxy Server/PAC-file via Configuration Policy for Windows 10 Desktop

    A few clients I work with would like to be able to set and maintain the Proxy Server for IE and Edge. Currently, they need to create an MSI which sets 2 registry keys to use a specific PAC-file.

  7. VPN ID field is mandatory, why?

    When creating a VPN profile for IOS, there is a field called "VPN Identifier (provided by VPN vendor)".


    1. why is this field MANDATORY (according to https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc2685 as far as I understand, it should not be) ?

    2. VPN providers I contacted did not know what it was and they did NOT provide the ID. (ex. Microsoft Intune Hotline, Synology Helpdesk)

    3. Customer data following it isn't clear either...

    Would it be very difficult and highly unprofitable to put a little more information next to each field in the forms (generally speaking)?

    Thanks.

    Hi, Thomas, I heard back from the PM who owns that and he said “VPN identifier is what iOS uses to call the appropriate app on the device to initiate the VPN connection. If VPN identifier is not provided, VPN connection is bound to fail because iOS won’t know which VPN app to open.”
    If you want to cite a specific section the RFC I can take that back to him.

  8. Control roaming possibility on per app basis

    Microsoft Intune should at minimal level allow policies controlling use of roaming. Depending on what is technically possible one of the following would alone enable the business case for implementing MDM


    • Control what apps are allowed to use data with Roaming

    • Control max-data transfer allowed with Roaming

    To confirm, are you talking about roaming like when your cellular service is charging you more? Windows Phone already has data sense.. Are you asking for policies to control that on WinPhone? I don’t know about iOS or Android – do they have anything similar that you want control of, or is it a concept that doesn’t exist for them?

  9. App deployment for iOS - grey out device groups

    While setting up app deployment for iOS devices using managed apps I could not get the apps to show up in the company website.

    The issue was that I had deployed the apps to a DEVICE group instead of a USER group.

    If app deployment is a per user configuration, could you add a warning or grey out the device groups when adding a managed iOS app as it will never be available when the user logs into the company website unless it assigned to a group the user is in. That has taken me a couple hours of support…

    Yeah, that’s a good idea. I’m going to move this to the ideas forum to be considered there. I’m also going to make a duplicate of this that says "add documentation about . .. " and assign it to the documentation category. Our writers are awesome about picking up stuff like this, so at least in the short term we should be able to make that more clear.

  10. Licence usage data

    Can we have access to licence usage in the Intune Data Warehouse.
    Rational is to allow for dashboard view of licence allocation against usage. To enable harvesting of licences which aren't being used.

    Bumping Pragathi’s comment – she’s on the product team and would like some clarification -

    1) When you say license allocation, do you mean Intune license assignment to individual employees in an organization?
    2) How are you defining “usage” and “license usage”?

  11. allow admins to add notes to inventory

    We have tons of valuable devices and lots of "events" occur with these units.

    Some are stolen, lost, broken, loaners, unknown... all kinds of etc.

    If we could group these items and use Intune to add minor notes....

    Intune would also become a valuable inventory tool.

    @Jamie, thanks for the heads up, I merged the requests. I personally think this request is different than the “management name” field, because I would assume a larger field for more info. But if you and @Tony feel like it fulfills what you were asking for, I can call it complete

  12. InTune Standalone Custom Scripts

    We are a smaller organization (under 1K machines) and are trying to use Intune Standalone to manage our PC fleet.

    With SCCM we used custom scripts to do multiple things but a big one was for custom software deployments.

    Currently Intune does not support this and I believe it would be a great feature to have moving forward.

    If not custom scripts support maybe some type of solution to accomplish the task.

    Thanks!

    I wanted to check in on this – in November we added the ability to manage PowerShell scripts in Intune for Windows 10 devices
    The Intune management extension lets you upload PowerShell scripts in Intune to run on Windows 10 devices. The extension supplements Windows 10 mobile device management (MDM) capabilities and makes it easier for you to move to modern management. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/intune/intune-management-extension

    Does that get you want you want?

  13. Configure iOS Managed Domains via Policy

    It would be great if you could configure iOS Managed Domains via a configuration policy and not by using a custom policy with Apple Configurator. I find the Managed Browser pretty useless since Safari is always the default. If someone clicks a link in their email it opens Safari. I would like an easy way to put our domains as Managed iOS Domains to prevent data leakage.

  14. Require passcode" (maxGracePeriod) policy should be enforced or just be set to 0 by default

    Hello,

    iOS password grace period should be set to 0 by default. Currently, setting an auto-lock policy for iOS devices doesn't work properly as the device is locked after the set period of time but it can be postponed by the user for up to 4 hours:

    On the device, go to Settings -> Passcode -> Require Passcode -> you can change this setting to up to 4 hours which shouldn’t be possible. The policy only changes settings in Settings -> General -> Auto-lock to the set amount of minutes determined by the MDM policy.

    This behaviour is set by…

  17. Email access is delayed for 1-3 hours when enrolling in Company Portal app and conditional access in Intune.

    Setup:
    - Conditional Access with Exchange On Premise
    - Default Access rule set to "Block"
    - Configuration Policy that configures the email client on iOS/Android

    After enrollment, it takes 1 - 3 hours for the device to become 'unblocked / access granted' in Exchange.
    This makes staging of the devices very difficult as we need the username/pass during enrollment & we can only start showing the email functionality after several hours.

    This is not mentioned in the documentation (as a matter of fact, the documentation states that it should be unblocked within 2 minutes). MS Support confirmed this is indeed…

  18. manage personal computers as computers?

    I wish there was some kind of support for Intune to manage personal computers as computers. I run a computer repair shop and I see lots of people falling for these scams involving overseas people offering remote managed services, but instead of offering real services, they just install fake AV software and spyware, and charge big money for it too! I'd like to offer a legitimate service that includes managed AV and "light" system monitoring (health status), and Intune seems to include this, but only for Pro versions of Windows. Can Intune not run in a limited fashion on Home…

    Hey, an update on this –
    Windows 10 Home does support very limited MDM capabilities. Intune is able to manage Windows 10 Home. Many of the CSPs (configuration service providers) are disabled on Home version, and if Intune tries to push these to Home devices, these CSPs will fail. This is by design.

    I’m not marking it “complete” because you’re saying “manage personal computers as computers” and this would really be “manage personal computers as mobile devices.” But in case this helps you at all, here you go.

  19. Ability to perform Office365 updates through Intune

    Believe this feature does not exist currently. We need to have the ability to update Office 365 updates through Intune with better control. Hope am not overloooking any feature which allows us do this currently.
