Configure - Cloud connected Guide
In this section of the guide, we'll go over how to set up Auto Enrollment for your tenant, and how to apply licenses for both Intune and Remote Assist.
Azure Users and Groups
Azure, and Intune by that extension, uses users and groups to help assign configurations and licenses. For the sake of validating this deployment flow and being able to make a Remote Assist call from one user to another you'll need two user accounts.
We can make a single user group for the purpose of assigning licenses. We can join both users to the same group and apply a license for Intune and Remote Assist to that group.
If you don't already have access to two Microsoft Entra accounts in a user group you can use; here are the quick start guides for:
- How to create a user
- How to create a group
- Add users to a group – Add created users to create group
- Configure Microsoft Entra ID to allow a User Group to join devices – Ensure new user group has permission to enroll devices to Microsoft Entra ID
Auto Enrollment on HoloLens 2
In order to have a smooth and seamless experience, setting up Microsoft Entra join and Auto Enrollment to Intune for HoloLens 2 devices is the way to go. This will allow users to input their organization log-in credentials during OOBE and automatically register with Microsoft Entra ID and enroll the device into MDM.
By using Microsoft Endpoint Manager, we can select services and navigate a few pages until we can select Get a Premium trial. You may notice there is Microsoft Entra ID P1 and P2, for Automatic Enrollment P1 is sufficient. We can select Intune and select the user scope for automatic enrollment, and select the group that was previously created.
For full details and steps read the guide on how to enable auto enrollment for Intune.
An application license allows a user to either install company purchased Apps or upgrade from a free trial to the full version of an app. Application licenses can be applied to either users, user groups, or device groups. You'll need Remote Assist licenses for users in your organization to use Remote Assist. For the purpose of this guide we'll assign Remote Assist licenses to the user group we created above in Azure Users and Groups.
The requirements for licenses can be different depending on if the user will be making the Remote Assist call from a device or will be a remote collaborator from Microsoft Teams. By default the Remote Assist and Teams check boxes are both marked. For the purposes of this guide, we suggest leaving the default boxes checked.
