Intune Automatic Enrollment Attributes Visible to Non-Administrators

Maranya, Damon 316 Reputation points

We are preparing to enroll our fleet of Windows 10 devices with Intune using the Intune automatic enrollment group policy.

We have multiple users that are not based in locations with access to a domain controller. As a result these users will be coming in to an office that does have DC access to trigger the group policy, and then returning to their work locations.

The problem I'm stuck on is that I need to find a way to inform the users when the enrollment task has been created, so that they can get back to their respective locations.

But the task is only visible to users with administrator permissions on the device, and most of our users do not have local administrator permissions. I have the same problem with GPResult. Which is not exactly the same thing. But it would be the next best thing that I know of.

Does anyone know of an attribute that's visible to a standard user account and would confirm the creation of the requisite enrollment task? Or failing that, whether or not the group policy was successfully applied?

    @Maranya, Damon Thanks for posting in our Q&A. It seems there is no method to visible the task to a standard user account. Based on my understanding, if we want to apply GPO to a standard user, it is needed to ask the users to restart their devices to apply the policy.

    Then wait for some time and check if it shows the "Info" button under Settings > Accounts > Access work or school > click on your work or school accoount. If yes, it means that GPO enrollment is successful.

    Or please try to check if it shows Event ID: 75, with the message “Auto MDM Enroll: Succeeded” in Event Viewer's Applications and Services Logs > Microsoft > Windows > DeviceManagement-Enterprise-Diagnostic-Provider > Admin. If yes, it indicates that the auto-enrollment succeeded.

    Hope it will give you some ideas.

    Thanks for the suggestion @Lu Dai-MSFT .

    Unfortunately this isn't an option as some enrollments are taking 14 or more hours to complete. We have a case open with Microsoft on that issue. But progress has not been as fast as one might hope.

    In the meantime I'm looking for a way to let the end user know that the group policy has been successfully applied and the scheduled task has been created. So that they can disconnect from the domain network and return the their offices which have internet access but not visibility into our domain. Which will be fine for the Intune enrollment process as I understand it.

    Anyone have any other ideas?
