Before you begin

  3. From the Admin console Home page, go to Devices.

    Go to Devices
  4. In the navigation menu, click Mobile & endpoints > Settings > Third-party integrations > Security and MDM partners > Manage.
  5. Look for Microsoft Intune and click Open connection.
  6. In the Connect to Intune dialog, enter the tenant ID in the Azure directory tenant id field and application ID in the Azure application id field.

    manual sync
  7. Depending on whether you want to import only company-owned devices or import all devices, perform the appropriate action:
    • To import only company-owned devices, click the Import only company-owned devices toggle. In the Device properties to import section, select the properties that must be stored in BeyondCorp Enterprise.
    • To import all devices, in the Device properties to import section, select the properties that must be stored in BeyondCorp Enterprise.

      manual sync

    The mandatory device properties such as device identifier, last sync time, serial number, and wifi MAC address are collected by default.

    For more information about the device properties that Intune collects, see Intune device properties.

  8. Click Continue.
  9. Copy the Service account ID.
  10. Use the Service account ID to authorize Azure workload identity to collect data from the Intune devices:
    1. Configure your app to trust an external identity provider.

      Specify the following values in the corresponding fields:

      • Name: Any name for the federated credential.
      • Subject identifier: The Service account ID that you copied.
      • Issuer: https://accounts.google.com.
    2. Grant your app permissions:
      1. Search for DeviceManagementManagedDevices.Read.All and DeviceManagementApps.Read.All permissions and add these permissions to Microsoft Graph.

        DeviceManagementManagedDevices.Read.All provides read access to all devices and their properties managed by Intune, and DeviceManagementApps.Read.All provides read access to the Intune audit logs for device deletion events.

      2. Grant admin consent to the permissions configured for your application.
  11. In the Connect to Intune dialog, click Connect.
