Intune – ADMX-backed admin templates (preview)

We all have been using Group Policies for decades for all of our on-prem domain joined machine. Now Microsoft has introduced, in preview, ADMX template style settings in Intune.

MS Docs for details. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/intune/administrative-templates-windows

  • Assumption is you have some Intune knowledge and know how to assign profiles.
  1. To access the Preview, go into your Azure Portal – Microsoft Intune -> Device configuration – Profiles
  2. Create a new profile

  3. Name your profile, choose Windows 10 or Later as the platform, and Profile type is Administrative Templates (Preview)

  4. In the profile, choose Settings and you will see all the policies available (there are few pages).

5. In the filter, search for a policy setting if needed like the screen shot below or sort the columns accordingly.

6. Select a setting like I have below and choose an option (similar to GPO). For the Excel save setting, I chose the default to be Excel 5.0/95 Workbook so I can see the change (as Excel XLS is default anyways).

7. In my test I have chosen several different settings.

8. Assign the profile accordingly to your test group.

9. Monitor deployment status

10. Once the settings are applied, check the device for results.
