Tenant attach: Device timeline in the admin center
Applies to: Configuration Manager (current branch)
The Microsoft Intune family of products is an integrated solution for managing all of your devices. Microsoft brings together Configuration Manager and Intune into a single console called Microsoft Intune admin center. When Configuration Manager synchronizes a device to Microsoft Intune through tenant attach, you can see a timeline of events. This timeline shows past activity on the device that can help you troubleshoot problems.
The following items are needed to use the timeline from the admin center:
- All of the prerequisites for Tenant attach: ConfigMgr client details.
- Enable Endpoint analytics data collection in Configuration Manager:
- In the Configuration Manager console, go to Administration > Client Settings > Default Client Settings.
- Right-click and select Properties then select the Computer Agent settings.
- Set Enable Endpoint analytics data collection to Yes.
- Only events collected after the client receives this policy will be visible in the admin center. Events prior to receiving the policy won't be accessible.
The user account needs the following permissions:
- The Read permission for the device's Collection in Configuration Manager.
- The Read Resource permission under Collection in Configuration Manager.
- The Notify Resource permission under Collection in Configuration Manager.
- An Intune role assigned to the user
Devices send events once a day to the admin center. Only events collected after the client receives the Enable Endpoint analytics data collection policy are visible in the admin center. Generate test events easily by installing an application or an update from Configuration Manager, or restart the device. Events are kept for 30 days. Use the chart to view events that are collected.
