Native support for Desktop Analytics for AAD Joined and Hybrid AAD Joined MDM Only managed devices
There should be Native enrollment for Intune enrolled devices similar to ATP onboarding. Either a Device configuration profile, which includes CommercialID, AllowTelelmetry(with LimitEnhancedDiagnosticsDataWindowsAnalytics), and AllowDeviceNameInTelemetry. Or at least an article to onboard using a PowerShell script which can be deployed via Intune.
Currently even if devices are manually configured with these settings they will not appear in Desktop Analytics without an SCCM collection association.
This and similar analytics for Office 365 clients are big ticket missing items for the successful management of the Modern MDM managed devices, and the Windows/Office as a service platform.
Spoke with someone on the Intune team at Ignite last week and asked about this specific limitation. I was told it was not supported (yet) because SCCM uses it's Windows agent to collect and transmit the telemetry data, but they are working on a way to provide this capability for Intune-only devices in the future.
I am trying to achieve Desktop Analytics enrollment in Intune for long time but no luck as it is too complicated to configure and required SCCM and domain joined client
hope MS will find out some solution for this feature.
PS: MS experts are unable to solve this case :)
Native enrollment of desktop analytics on AAD/hybrid devices would be a organic progression to true modern deployment. A huge benefit to managed enterprise I’m surprised this capability is not already included and hope to see these analytics become available in future release.
