Assign licenses

In preparation to enroll in Microsoft Managed Desktop, you must ensure you've obtained the necessary licenses. For more information about licenses, see More about licenses for the licenses you'll need.

When you have the appropriate licenses, assign them to your users. To assign licenses, we recommend that you take advantage of the group-based licensing feature of Azure Active Directory.

If you have any difficulty with license assignment, contact Admin support.
