We have a couple of devices that are showing in MDATP which we would like to get rid of, however we are not in a position to run any scripts...

One was registered in InTune by mistake and has been unregistered, and we cannot contact the owner anymore - and its still checking in.

One device failed and was rebuilt with the same name but is now showing twice.

 

Can we remove these?

this does not scale very well when you have 50-100 devices being deprovisioned or disowned.. We do not offboard them as part of the deprovisioning.. There has to be a better way.

Has it worked for anyone?
1. Copy the machine you want to offboard in the machine list and obtain the machine ID from the URL (…/machines/<machine ID>)
2. Navigate to API explorer (Left pane in ATP > Partners & APIs > API explorer)
3. Change first drop-down to "POST"
4. Paste this URL (https://api.securitycenter.windows.com/api/machines/{machine-id}/offboard)
5. Enter machine ID in the URL (keep the entire URL, just replace <MachineID>)
6. Run query (This will force machine to run the offboarding script next time the machine checks in.)
7. Include this comment (remove the first and last quotations):

"{

"Comment": "Offboard machine by automation"

}"

8. Repeat 1-6 for each machine you'd like to remove

@aatishsharma64 

Yes, it is working for "Windows 10, version 1703 and later, or Windows Server 2019 and later."

For all Oses, which onboarding to WD ATP via script, not via MMA.

But they disappear after next query to the devices.

Leaving the "I want to delete the actual data entries to clean up" argument aside, there is actually no need to offboard the orphaned devices. (at least if nothing has changed during the last 9 months)

When talking to the MDE support, I was told the orphaned entries will be removed regardless of the "onboard/offboard" status, after the device has been inactive long enough.
Long enough meaning the span of the data retention period.

The offboard action is only really "required" when the device itself needs to detach itself from MDE, say during troubleshooting or when you want to stop using MDE.
(This is a summary of my talk with MDE support somewhere around February or so)
Partially disagree you. It is not a good idea to wait auto deletion of obsolete devices, because they appear in reports, dashboards, analytics till their removing.

I am still looking for solution for removing Server 2012-2016 and Mac devices from portal.

@iamdmitriev 

Devices remain in the device inventory even if they are offboarded though, do they not?

Do you mean that devices that have been offboarded will not be included in reports?

@KateAWin getting error like this
