Enroll Linux device in Intune

Enroll your personal Linux device in Microsoft Intune to get secure access to work or school resources in Microsoft Edge. This article describes how to enroll and register your personal Linux device on your organization's network.

System requirements

Enrollment is supported on devices with:

  • Ubuntu Desktop 22.04 or 20.04 LTS
  • A GNOME graphical desktop environment (automatically included with Ubuntu Desktop 22.04 and 20.04 LTS)

We recommend enabling encryption when you first install Ubuntu Desktop on your device. Your organization may require your device to be encrypted, and it's easiest to encrypt the device during OS installation.

For help with setting up Ubuntu Desktop, see the following resources on the Ubuntu website:

You can view and resolve all compliance issues in the Microsoft Intune app. For more information, see Check status on Linux devices.
