Hello,

Is it possible to register a MacOS device without enrolling it into Intune? The same way you can register mobile devices without enrolling them via authenticator (settings > device registration)

We don't have a need to manage the device other than to apply conditional access policies on specific MacOS devices.

    @tartor321 Thanks for posting in our Q&A.

    If you want to use conditional access policy, the MacOS device don't need to enroll to intune. We can set up app-based conditional access policy.

    https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/mem/intune/protect/app-based-conditional-access-intune-create

    To clarify this issue, what did you mean "specific MacOS devices"? Based on my understanding, there is a feature called "Filter for devices" in a conditional access policy that can filter the devices you want. However, this feature works on devices that are enrolled to intune.

    Thanks for your understanding.
