Question from customer regarding W365 installation:

 

"Do the W365 machines HAVE to be on a domain?  Is there an option to keep these machines in a workgroup managed by Microsoft InTune and maintain the security around the users identity?"

 

Thanks in advance!

At the moment this is still a requirement for the Enterprise SKU. It is on the roadmap to also allow AzureAD join only

The Business SKU doesn't have that requirement and uses AzureAD only.
