AutoPilot: Use CompanyPortal app to push/collect DeviceID data for already deployed Win10 computers
One of the biggest problems with AutoPilot is getting the deviceID info from existing devices that are only cloud managed.
It would be helpful to be able to pull DeviceID and Current Computer name from the CompanyPortal app installed on Windows 10 1703+ devices.
MMD Management: Intune on Azure Portal (at least migrated from silverlight) (Intune or EMS E3+ for license)
Authentication: Azure AD Joined with at least a P1 AzureAD license assigned
Device: Windows 10 devices that support AutoPilot (so far 1703+)
Application: Windows Store App "Company Portal" is installed
Possible workflows -
1) Since the device is AzureAD joined - maybe store it just like bitlocker key as attribute of the device in AzureAD when CompanyPortal is installed.
2) Allow configuring the behavior of if/when to generate device ID as a setting of Company Portal in the Store4Business private store. Then store current computerName+DeviceID in Microsoft Store Business.
3) Have MDM CSP or OMA-URI to control when/if to generate DeviceID and record/report the deviceID into "Windows Analytics Upgrade Readiness" maybe as part of "Additional Insights" like the site-discovery and Office add-in discovery, have an "AutoPilot ready" section.
we have a lot of existing Azure (cloud only) domain joined machines in the wild on many geographically dispersed sites that we are trying to bring into autopilot. it would make life a lot easier if we could have intune gather the necessary information (hardware hashes, serials etc.) rather than having to manually run the powershell script on each one.
