App protection for OneDrive app on iPhone perceives phone always as unmanaged even if it is managed

Tobias 0 Reputation points

Dear Microsoft,

I try to create app protection polices for iOS, filtert by managed an unmanaged devices. For this, I use the new filter feature for the policies.

My filter for the unmanaged devices:

(app.deviceManagementType -eq "Unmanaged") and (app.osVersion -notContains "17.")

Why '-notContains "17."'? Because I want to split iOS 16 and 17 as well.

The policy for the managed devices is not deployed now.

First it looks great. Outlook, Teams, OneDrive, etc. on private iPhones are protected now.
Managed iPhones are untouched, excepted OneDrive. OneDrive on managed iPhones falsely receive the policy as well.

It seams like, that Intune perceives OneDrive always as unmanaged. No mater if it runs on a managed or unmanaged iPhone.

OneDrive on the managed iPhone was installed over the Company Portal App.

For me, this looks like a Bug.

Please let me know, if you need more information.

Thanks a lot for your support.

    @Tobias Thanks for posting in our Q&A. From your description, did you mean that you only deployed this app protection policy to unmanaged iOS devices, but managed iOS devices also applied this policy? If there is anything misunderstanding, please correct me.

    To clarify this issue, we appreciate your help to collect device data with Microsoft Edge:

    1.Open Microsoft Edge for iOS and Android on your device.

    2.In the address bar, type "about:intunehelp".

    3.Microsoft Edge for iOS launches in troubleshooting mode.

    Please check if the managed device's OneDrive app really applied the app protection policy deployed to unmanaged devices.

    If there is anything update, feel free to let us know.

    @Lu Dai-MSFT thanks for your quick response.

    That's right, I only deploy the app protection policy to unmanaged iOS devices. Managed iOS devices should stay untouched.

    I have to add, that I also deploy a app protection policy for Android, but everything is working like expected there. No problems. The filter for managed and unmanaged is working perfectly fine.

    Thanks for the hint with Edge. I didn't know, that I can get more information's with it.
    I used to look in Teams and Outlook under "Privacy Settings" to check if a policy is active or not.

    If I get it right, than Edge is telling me, that the policy is deployed to all apps on the managed iPhone as well. But if i take a look in the apps, the policy is taking no effect. Only in OneDrive the policy takes effect. It should take effect in non app on the managed iPhone.

    Here are the log files.

    I assigniert the policy to a group, in which only I am. My user owns three devices, a Windows Laptop, a Android Smartphone and a iPhone. I also use my private iPhone to check the policy on a unmanaged device.
    The policy is assigned as follows.

    | Group | Group Members | Filter | Filter mode | | -------- | -------- | -------- | -------- | | Microsoft Intune - user - Tobias * | 0 devices, 1 users | Filter - iOS Apps - v16 and older unmanaged | Include | *last Name was removed.

    The Policy:

    @odata.type                             : #microsoft.graph.iosManagedAppProtection
    displayName                             : Test - iOS - App protection - Unmanaged Devices - v16 and older
