What can I manage?

Speaking of managing devices with Microsoft Intune; Reference is made to a series of actions that you can implement to guarantee the correct handling of the information and the teams linked by this system.

Your general devices

For example, from the Administration Center, you will be able to see the devices available for individual management, this by accessing “Devices”.

There you will see the information of each element very detailed; where Intune reflects which platforms they use, which operating system they have and even which user uses that unit.

If you click on any of them, the search will be much more detailed, allowing you to manage, separately, from the updates to be treated, to know the malware, and to determine what services will be available and which policies will apply to it.

To do all this, you simply have to choose the upper tabs indicated with each specific element, then choose the configuration you want.

Azure devices

On the other hand, you will also have a special list for the devices that are registered or related to Azure Active Directory; this through the administrator himself for Azure AD teams.

The history of the devices

Another aspect that you can achieve when managing devices with Microsoft Intune is to know the actions of each unit, of course, as long as they generate a change in Intune itself.

Other ways to manage

You can also achieve generalized administration, this if you apply device profiles, with which they include groups of computers to which your preferences will be applied. You will only have to open “Devices” and then go to the option “Configuration profiles”, where all the profiles will be located.

Now, you choose the profile you want to apply, from “Assignments” and; then, choose to “Include” or “Exclude” groups, in order to later be able to determine which groups are to be treated.

It should be noted that this only works with Azure AD groups, and with only one at a time; Therefore, to select more than one you must hold down the control key or “Ctrl” and click on the desired elements.

Another tool that Microsoft has that also works as a cloud is Microsoft Azure, with this program you can build, test and manage applications and services, the best of all is that you can acquire a Microsoft Azure account for free.
