access corporate data on an iPad without user affinity

Copper Contributor

Hello everyone,

Is it possible to access corporate data, such as a resource calendar (room), with an iPad that has been set up in Intune without user affinity? The tablet will be mounted on the wall outside our meeting rooms and display room availability. I’d like to avoid creating a generic user for this purpose.

 

What about licensing? A generic user would require both an Intune and an Exchange license. What licenses are needed for an iPad without a user for access?

 

Thank you very much for your help, and greetings from Germany

Nico

Enrolling without user affinity is used for shared device scenario's ( where individual user will log-in to the device) and is not for the scenario you are describing. You need to authenticate to Exchange, so there is a 'user' needed. So for your scenario it the only way is to create a generic user but it would also be best register your devices with this user.

Even better and the most professional approach would be something like this:
