Remotely restart devices with Intune
The Restart device action causes the device you choose to be restarted (within 5 minutes). The device owner isn't automatically notified of the restart, and they might lose work.
Windows - Supported on Windows 8.1 and later
Windows attempts to show the user a message with the following text: "Your device administrator has scheduled a reboot." The message is shown when the 5 minute restart counter is started. Restart of Windows devices immediately requires push notifications via Windows Notification Services (WNS). For more information on WNS, see Network Endpoint Requirements.
Android Enterprise dedicated devices - Supported on Android 8.0 and later
Android Enterprise fully managed devices - Supported on Android 8.0 and later
Android Enterprise corporate-owned with work profile devices - Not supported
iOS/iPadOS - Supported
This command requires a supervised device and the Device Lock access right. The device restarts immediately. Passcode-locked iOS/iPadOS devices don't rejoin a Wi-Fi network after restart. After restart, the device might not be able to communicate with the server.
macOS - Supported
Android and Android Enterprise personally-owned work profile devices - Not supported
