Microsoft Defender for Endpoint Plan 2 enforcing and licenses

Copper Contributor

Hi Everyone,


We started onboarding our devices to the defender and I have noticed that the Subscription state

for Microsoft Defender for Endpoint Plan 2 mentioning that These plan features and capabilities are applied to all your devices. How can I specify the devices for which I would like to use the devices in a specific security group?


Also, once we finished the deployment, we were promoted with an error stating "Your organization is using more Plan 2 licenses than you own. Compare flexible purchase options, or assign licenses to devices in the subscription settings". How can we rectify the situation as we are pushing this on mobile phones as well? I know that every user gets to enroll 5 devices so it is normal to have the number of licenses *5 without having any compliance issues, correct?


What if we have devices = less than 5 times the number of licenses but some users who don't have licenses are using these devices? will that be a problem?
