Provide a way to translate between GPO and OMA-URI / ADMX-backed policies
This is split from the original "Provide a translation or mapping between GPO and OMA-URI / ADMX-backed policies" - we've delivered the mapping part, but leaving this new request for the translation part.
Using Intune on Azure to manage Windows 10 PCs thru the MDM channel works great. However, many policies that are available via traditional GPO are either not available, or are available via OMA-URI and ADMX-backed policies but using different names and using a different configuration interface.
Please continue rolling out MDM policies to catch up with GPO; and at the same time — perhaps more importantly — provide a way to translate GPO to OMA-URI, where those settings are already available thru a CSP (Configuration Service Provider). This would make MDM adoption much easier for orgs seeking to migrate from a GPO-based management model.
If this could be done, even through PS, it would be a great win for administrative Intune adoption. The current method is very cumbersome and prone to errors. I've been working on this for a couple of months and still don't have a successful conversion. Had to build all new policy and bring it as close to GPO as possible.
Maybe if a couple more videos (using custom ADMX template, for example) were made, this would be easier.
I' have spoken to our Fast Track and weekly MS Intune support techs. No ETA for a smoother way to migrate GPOs to Intune policies.

MMAT tool really helped give us insights about GPO conversion rate to CSP but analysis and build is still manual. It would be awesome if it included a module that created the syncML equivalent of the GPOs supported in CSP
