We're in the process of evaluating Intune (currently using Workspace One) for MDM. While doing some basic testing, I'm wondering how I can remove and re-install a device configuration profile on an Intune-enrolled device. This is an IOS device in this case. Some profiles seem to throw error transiently when installing for the first time, then later succeeding. Is there a way I can force the profile installation, or remove/re-push the profile rather than just waiting?

@CharlesGP I assume you mean re-push from the Admin side and not on the device side, right?  On the device, you could just re-sync with the Company Portal. From the Endpoint Manager portal, you could use Bulk Device Actions to sync.

Another trick is to change the description of an app/profile. This will also force the policy to be re-evaluated when the device checks in the next time
