Hi All,

I'm looking for the proper licensing for Intune when enrolling PCs via a provisioning package.  Since this does not tie a device to a specific user, I'm wondering if I just need to purchase Intune Device licenses for each PC?

Hi Sean,

I was in the same boat before, I spent more money on E5 mobility to have more features (like AutoPilot) comparing to regular Intune license.

Here is great guide that might help you.

@Moe_Kinani my question is really about Intune User vs Device licenses I guess.  Since I will be enrolling PCs to Intune via the 'Bulk Enroll' method using a WCD provisioning package, there will be no direct user assigned to the PC. Technically, there is no Intune license verification during this enrollment process like there is with AAD auto-enrollment or Autopilot auto-enrollment. 

I'm wondering since these will be more of a 'shared' type PC, and not tied directly to a user, do I need to simply purchase some Intune device licenses to be compliant.  Even through these licenses may not be assigned to any users/devices. 

Got it now. According to the article below, device-only subscription should be enough for you whether doing self or bulk deployment.

Moe
