With the October 14, 2019 Microsoft Intune update, management of Microsoft Intune has become a little easier. And with “little easier” I mean that it is now possible to assign multiple resources like applications and policies at once.
With Policy Sets you can assign applications, application protection policies (MAM), configuration-, compliance- and type restriction policies, AutoPilot profiles and enrollment status page with one single assignment. The resources itself don’t have to be assigned separately to users or devices.
This offers the possibility to create a company baseline with resources that needs to be applied to ever user of device within the organization.
You can assign resources for multiple platforms (iOS, Android, Windows 10) within a single Policy Set. Below I will show you step-by-step you to create a new Policy Set. Before you start with Policy Sets, make sure that you have already created the resources you want to add to the Policy Set within Microsoft Intune.
For the following steps, login to the Microsoft Azure Portal.
Navigate to Intune and click Policy sets
Open the Policy sets blade and click the +Create button.
Fill in a Policy set name and click Next : Application Management
Add the required Apps, App configuration policies and App protection policies and click Next: Device Management
Add the required Device configuration profiles and the Device compliacne policies and click Next: Device enrollment
Add the required Device type restrictions, Windows autopilot deployment profiles and Enrollment status pages and click Next: Assignments
Select the group you want to assign this Policy Set to, or select All Users or All Devices if that is an option with the selected resources. Click Next: Review + create
Now your Policy Set is created and assigned.
