Configure tenant attach to support endpoint security policies from Intune

When you use the Configuration Manager tenant attach scenario, you can deploy endpoint security policies from Intune to devices you manage with Configuration Manager. To use this scenario, you must first configure tenant attach for Configuration Manager and enable collections of devices from Configuration Manager for use with Intune. After collections are enabled for use, you use the Microsoft Intune admin center to create and deploy policies.

Requirements to use Intune policy for tenant attach

To support using Intune endpoint security policies with Configuration Manager devices, your Configuration Manager environment requires the following configurations. Configuration guidance is provided in this article:

General requirements for tenant attach

  • Configure tenant attach - With the tenant attach scenario, you synchronize devices from Configuration Manager to the Microsoft Intune admin center. You can then use the admin center to deploy supported policies to those collections.

    Tenant attach is often configured with co-management, but you can configure tenant attach on its own.

  • Synchronize Configuration Manager devices and collections – After you configure tenant attach, you can select the Configuration Manager devices to synchronize with Microsoft Intune admin center. You can also return later to modify the devices you sync.

    After selecting devices to synchronize, you must enable collections for use with endpoint security policies from Intune. Supported policies for Configuration Manager devices can only be assigned to collections you've enabled.

  • Permissions to Microsoft Entra ID - To complete setup of tenant attach, your account must have Global Administrator permissions to your Azure subscription.

  • Tenant for Microsoft Defender for Endpoint – Your Microsoft Defender for Endpoint tenant must be integrated with your Microsoft Intune tenant (Microsoft Intune Plan 1 subscription). See Use Microsoft Defender for Endpoint in the Intune documentation.

Set up Configuration Manager to support Intune policies

Before you deploy Intune policies to Configuration Manager devices, complete the configurations detailed in the following sections. These configurations onboard your Configuration Manager devices with Microsoft Defender for Endpoint, and enable them to work with the Intune policies.

The following tasks are completed in the Configuration Manager console. If you're not familiar with Configuration Manager, work with a Configuration Manager admin to complete these tasks.

  1. Confirm your Configuration Manager environment
  2. Configure tenant attach and synchronize devices
  3. Select devices to synchronize
  4. Enable collections for endpoint security policies

Tip

To learn more about using Microsoft Defender for Endpoint with Configuration Manager, see the following articles in the Configuration Manager content:

Task 1: Confirm your Configuration Manager environment

Intune policies for Configuration Manager devices require different minimum versions of Configuration Manager, depending on when the policy was first released. Review the Configuration Manager version requirements for Intune endpoint security policies found earlier in this article to ensure your environment supports the policies you plan to use. A more recent version of Configuration Manager supports policies that require an earlier version.

When a Configuration Manager hotfix is necessary, you can find the hotfix as an in-console update for Configuration Manager. For more information, see Install in-console updates in the Configuration Manager documentation.

After installing necessary updates, return here to continue configuring your environment to support endpoint security policies from the Microsoft Intune admin center.

Task 2: Configure tenant attach and synchronize devices

With tenant attach, you specify collections of devices from your Configuration Manager deployment to synchronize with the Microsoft Intune admin center. After collections synchronize, use the admin center to view information about those devices and to deploy endpoint security policy from Intune to them.

For more information about the tenant attach scenario, see Enable tenant attach in the Configuration Manager content.

Enable tenant attach when co-management hasn't been enabled

Tip

You use the Co-management Configuration Wizard in the Configuration Manager console to enable tenant attach, but you don't need to enable co-management.

If you plan to enable co-management, be familiar with co-management, its prerequisites, and how to manage workloads before you continue. See What is co-management? in the Configuration Manager documentation.

  1. In the Configuration Manager admin console, go to Administration > Overview > Cloud Services > Co-management.

  2. In the ribbon, select Configure co-management to open the wizard.
