Unable to assign group to configuration profile policy create in Microsoft Endpoint Manager

Ainul Jasni 41 Reputation points

Hello, I can create Configuration profile but unable to include group of a test device group. I was able to include the group during the creation, but after review+save, the configuration profile was successfully created but after I check back in the profile properties, under included group it shows 'not selected'. so I tried edit the assignments, and got the error "You don't have enough permissions to assign this configuration to one or more of your selected groups, contact your administrator."

I have built in role 'policy and profile manager' with the enrollment programs 'assign profile'. but still got this error, can you help me?

    @Ainul Jasni , Thanks for posting in Q&A. For your error message, it seems there are permission issue when assign configuration profile to one group.

    Based on my experience, it can be that the role assignment to you didn't include the group under Scope groups. You can check and add the test device group under your role assignment to see if it works.

    Hope it can help.

    Hi @Ainul Jasni ,

    I have seen this issue before and I believe when you need to add "All devices" to your assignment in the autopilot deployment profile in order to resolve the issue. See Permissions to assign deployment profiles:


    You also need to have both the correct Azure and Intune permissions to assign profiles to a group, as documented here.

    Let me know if this helps. If you still face this issue let me know and I have some other suggestions to try depending on your scenario.


    If the information helped you, please Accept the answer. This will help us and other community members as well.

    Hi @Marilee Turscak-MSFT , thank you for your answers. Actually I'm not creating Automatic Deployment profile, I just want to create and assign a group from the Configuration profile I've created in Microsoft Endpoint Manager ( Devices > Windows > Configuration Profile ), as shown here

    May I know if theres any connection to Automatic Deployment profile and why do I need to create profile under Windows Automatic Deployment program?
