Hi!
I have several pc's in my company deployed to intune/Azure.
Now I have to install a cctv app on some of them.

My problem is:
The cctv app requires to run as administrator, what I can't do cos the real clients are not admins.
And theirs accounts are not locally. Basically they have no rights to run any app etc. as an admin.

So, how can I still finish my job?

How can I set up something somewhere so the client can run the cctv app with admin rights but I wont share my admin/login data with the clients.

Is there any way to setup something's so the user can still run the cctv app?

Thank you.

    Hi @Chris

    Welcome to Microsoft Q&A!

    Apologies for the delayed response. This is a security measure inbuilt in Windows through UAC. I would suggest either of the following measures to be able to run this application on end user machines.

    1. Please work with the developer/vendor of this application to understand the required access and provide only those access to end users through security groups.
    2. If it is a no-UI application, please check if it can be run as a Windows Service (under one of the special accounts).
