How to make a synced W10 Hybrid Azure AD device Intune managed

When you normally join a device to the Azure AD and automatic Windows enrollment has been configured. The device will be automatically enrolled in Intune at the moment the device will added to the Azure Active Directory. This will not happen when a device is being synced from the Active Directory to the AzureAD, then the status of MDM will be “NONE” as you can see in the screenshot. In this Post I will show how to enroll this device in Intune.



How to enroll Hybrid AD synced devices into Intune

1. Log into your Azure Tenant using


2. First check if Automatic Windows Enrollment has been configured in Intune. Go to “Microsoft Intune -> Device Enrollment -> Windows Enrollment” and select “Automatic Enrollment”

9. Enable the policy (Screenshot on the right – from W10 1903 an option has been added which credential type to use. Select “User Credential” to use.) and press “Apply”
