Device configuration only for users?

Harry Dubois

We are just beginning with Intune, but is it just right that you cannot ad devices in a Azure AD Group, and use a device configuration policy only for that group with devices? Or is this because you can only assign devices with associated users?

That is correct, AAD Groups contain user accounts, they don't contain devices. 


Devices are managed by Registering them and then applying policies, see



If you can map the membership rules to your use case, you may be able to use Device Dynamic Groups:



We're successfully assigning configurations based upon this approach today.  It takes a few minutes for the dynamic group membership to get resolved after enrolling the device in Intune, but they do eventually apply.
