  11. Select scope tags, and then select Next. For information about scope tags, see Use RBAC and scope tags for distributed IT.

  12. In Assignments, include or exclude the profile from selected groups. For info about assigning profiles, see Assign user and device profiles.


    If the profile is assigned to user groups, then configured ADMX settings apply to any device that the user enrolls, and signs in to. If the profile is assigned to device groups, then configured ADMX settings apply to any user that signs into that device. This assignment happens if the ADMX setting is a computer configuration (HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE), or a user configuration (HKEY_CURRENT_USER). With some settings, a computer setting assigned to a user may also impact the experience of other users on that device.

    For more info, see User groups vs. device groups.

    When you're done, select Next.

  13. In Review + create, review your settings. When you select Create, your changes are saved, and the profile is assigned. The policy is also shown in the profiles list.
