Microsoft 365 Defender - Device Discovery Issues

New Contributor

I have a Microsoft 365 E5 trial and I am logged into 365 Defender Portal.

I am following a tutorial to initialize Microsoft Defender for Endpoint to onboard a device.

As seen in the image below, I've clicked on settings and the tutorial says that I'm supposed to see an option called "Device Discovery".

I don't see this option, any ideas on what I'm doing wrong?

Hmm.... you also don't have "Endpoints" in your settings. What license do you have?
open go to billing ==> Licenses to check if you have E5 applied on your tenant actually

@Heike Ritter I figured it out, turns out I had to opt in for the Endpoints trial which my tutorial did not mention.  I'd assume end points must have been packaged in with another trial subscription when the author wrote the tutorial.

Enjoy the trial and your tutorial!! :) Which tutorial are you using, if I may ask?
