Known Issue: Group Policy Objects from past releases of Group Policy Analytics are excluded

Published Sep 21 2020 04:31 PM 3,693 Views

Group Policy Analytics has gone into public preview with the 2009 release, you can learn more here. There is a known issue with the new Migration readiness report where Group Policy Objects (GPOs) that you have uploaded in past releases of Group Policy analytics will be excluded in calculations done in the graphic at the top of the workload, Summary blade and Migration Readiness report.


Below are two workarounds for this issue:

  1. Force a re-compute of calculations by manually taking GPOs through the “Import” workflow again.
  2. Use the PowerShell script that was provided to help automatically re-compute the calculations. Follow the instructions hosted on our GitHub repository.

Upcoming feature improvements

We are working on an experience that lets you easily migrate your Group Policy settings into MDM. Tenants who were in private preview will see a “Migrate” button before anyone else. Today, the “Migrate” workflow supports creation into Administrative Template profiles via the profile creation workflow only.


In future releases, support will be added to migrate to other Device Configuration profiles in addition to Administrative Templates, alongside other user experience improvements to help you on your journey to cloud-based policy management. For tenants not who were not in our preview and want to see the “Migrate” workflow, please reach out to with your tenant ID.


Let us know if you have any additional questions on this by replying to this post or tagging @IntuneSuppTeam out on Twitter.


Blog updates:

5/24/21: We previously noted that in Q4 of 2020 that we would be doing an automatic re-compute for all GPOs across all tenants. This is still under investigation, and we’ll keep this post updated as we receive additional information.

We tried this out as soon as it came to public preview and I have to say it's shaping up to be an awesome tool to help move things out of legacy GPO and into cloud management.  I left feedback w/ the tool and look forward to improvements as they come out. 


This post mentions a future release coming out Q4 of this calendar year.  Is there a way to be notified when that will be available besides following announcements here and on Twitter?

Is this the evolution of the former MMAT tool, which is still available at GitHub, but appears to be an abandoned or stale project? See:
