Intune Push Configuration or Force Refesh and Endpoint

shockoQA 126 Reputation points

I'm new to Endpoint Manager, InTune and Endpoint Configuration Manager. I don't have SCCM deployed yet but I am looking to manage devices connected to InTune remotely on the internet. I am deploying Windows defender ATP and Defender for Antivirus to them. My question is this:

  • Once a device enrolls and applies a config policy from InTune, can I force a refresh of that policy to the device?

For example, I create a policy to configure an exclusion for Defender for Antivirus and now I want o make another change. Can I push this to the device or do I have to wait until it refreshes itself (pulls)?

    @shockoQA , To manually sync Intune policy immediately, we can do it on Intune portal or on device side. For the action on Intune portal, we can follow the steps in the link Jason provided. For the action on device side, we can follow the steps in the following link:,the%20iOS%20or%20Android%20device.
    Note: non-Microsoft link, just for the reference.

    Hope it can help.
