Change registereed owner for corporate owned devices
We shouldnt have to reenroll a device everytime a device changes owner. Please can you make it possible to change the device owner for corporate devices so we can propally audit without additional software? Kinda the purpose of an MDM
This feature is now in public preview, so I’m setting the status to “release in process”, which will give you your votes back to vote on the next thing you want us to prioritize.
Thanks for your feedback, and thanks for using Intune!
What about iOS and MacOS devices? This is a big headache for orgs with large numbers of corp owned Apple prods.

"Release in progress" as of 2020-03-18
Reality as of 2021-06-04 - Only partially fixed!
The problem is only resolved in InTune and not Azure AD. So, Microsoft have taken the low road and decided to use this as yet another feature excluding a large chunk of its customer base that do not have InTune. Yet another bug fix that has been used to add revenue and lock-in to the ecosystem. Nice work.

Any news on this?
Has this been implemented yet? We're running into an issue pushing applications to devices since only ownership connects the user to the device. Primary user is unable to receive applications pushed to a security group.
iOS devices? MacOS Devices? It is grayed out! Is this on the road map?

Just a quick comment that the ability to change the primary user for co-managed devices will be available with the June (2006) Intune service release: https://docs.microsoft.com/mem/intune/fundamentals/whats-new#change-primary-user-on-co-managed-devices.
Need this function for co-managed devices... case scenario: we dont want users in organization to enroll on their own, rather Intune admin will enroll in to device and then compliance policy will be applied
Is there a release date for the Co-managed Support?

When do we get this for iOS and iPadOS devices?
Nick Reed commented
iOS devices? MacOS Devices? Is it on the roadmap, or forgotten now you have done the Windows10 devices? Come on you only did 50% of the fetcher request!
Documentation has been updated to reflect that. Co-managed devices are not in scope yet.
Brian Grinstead commented
yes but not for co-managed devices

here is the same issue
I changed the primary user yesterday and today the primary user changed back to the previous user (the "Enrolled by user UPN" didn't change back to the previous user).
We have experienced the same.
Some process writes back the Primary user to what it was previously :(

I have been testing a few over the last couple of weeks and what I’m observing in the client environment you can make the change and save it. This changes both the enrolled by user UPN to the users email address and the Primary user(preview): to the users name. All good works successfully.
A couple days later check the users device again and the UPN is still the same but the primary user (preview): name changes back to previous user.
All done manually at the moment through the Intune console. An issue I know you guys are still working on....

Also need "primary user" added to the list of columns so it can actually be displayed on the device lists :) Yes please.

We need it also for iOS devices.
We need this for iOS devices, especially in Education. You should be able to change the primary user without wiping the device.

Okay so I can change the registereed own of a device.
But the user that enrolls the device is the owner and administrator.
The registereed is just a name, it is really not important unless he/she becomes the real owner. And administrator of the device.
