how to force a policy change for windows 10 endpoints


So we know that we have to wait for upto 8 hours on a device so that a policy, scripts etc from Azure intune is enforced/depolyed.


is there a command line to force a policy, or is it just restarting the MDM services?


we have an issue where we have edited a policy where one setting is put back to 'not configured'.  In the docs, the state of the endpoint should return to the default value after applying the not configured toggle/option.


when we run the mdm diagnostics report, we cant see that setting BUT the setting is still applied and not reversed.

Rebooting ther intune management extension could trigger it/ syncing from the company portal / syncing from devices in Intune.

But sometimes, some device configurations are still tattoed after configuring them to not configured, like I am showing in this blog
Your blog entry actually is a good starting off point. I enjoyed the term 'tattooed' and probably will use that term in the future ;)

ok, I can temporarily apply another CSP/Policy that will apply the value I want.


Glad to be of service...
