AAD joined devices (windows PC) users gets admin access

Hwan 0 Reputation points


I have a question regarding AAD joined devices, when user login into the device they get admin access, I would like to change to a standard account. when I see the devices they have a "cloud administrator" role. I think this might cause the issue. I tried to fix the issue but could not find the answer. by the way, my company does not have Intune license and AAD is also a free account.

could you advise me?

Thank you.

    This is the default behavior, the options to work around it are explained here: https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/active-directory/devices/assign-local-admin

    Do note that without Intune license, your options will be limited.
