Simplifying transition from Hybrid MDM (ConfigMgr+Intune) to Intune standalone

Community Manager

We have heard repeatedly from our customers who are using System Center Configuration Manager connected with Microsoft Intune (hybrid MDM) that they’d like to move to a cloud-only experience with Intune on Azure. This experience brings many new benefits, such as large scale, unified admin console, RBAC, and more. To help customers easily transition, we’re introducing a new process of moving from hybrid MDM to Intune standalone.


Previously, the move from hybrid MDM to Intune standalone required a one-time authority switch that would move an entire tenant at once and force the admin to reconfigure all settings in Intune, including re-enrolling all devices. Our new approach will allow customers to move from hybrid MDM to Intune standalone in a more controlled manner without impacting end users. The new process consists of three parts: Microsoft Intune Data Importer, mixed authority, and an improved MDM authority switch.

Hi Eric,


Does this work if I still have a Classic Intune portal?


We are having situation where MDM authority is pointed to SCCM.

Microsoft said that they can't do migration from classic Intune portal to new Azure Intune portal before we point MDM authority back to Intune.

Do I understand correctly, that Microsoft is now capable to do migration from classic Intune portal to Azure Intune portal when their customer MDM is pointed to SCCM?


We are not using Intune agent to manage PCs. We are using SCCM for that.


Hope you can help.

Thanks! Br, Joonas
