Easily enforcing specific Windows Sandbox configurations

This week is all about Windows Sandbox. About two years ago I wrote a post about simply enabling Windows Sandbox, by using a simple PowerShell script and distributing that script by using Microsoft Intune. Windows Sandbox is a really nice feature for running applications in an isolated environment. That isolated environment supports simple configuration files, which provide a minimal set of customization parameters. With the latest version of Windows 10, the administrator receives some controls for enforcing specific customization parameters. That won’t prevent the user from creating a configuration file, but that does prevent specific customization parameters from applying to the Windows Sandbox. In this post I’ll briefly go through the currently available policies, followed with the steps of configuring those policies. I’ll end this …

Quick tip: Enable browser access on Android Enterprise corporate-owned devices

This week a quick tip about enabling browser access on Android Enterprise Corporate-Owned Fully Managed devices and Android Enterprise Corporate-Owned devices with Work Profile, to work with device-based Conditional Access. That will enable the user to eventually use different apps for accessing company data. That includes for example using the Chrome browser app for accessing SharePoint Online or Exchange Online. On the Android Enterprise devices, this requires a configuration in the Microsoft Authenticator app. In this post I’ll simply provide the steps that are required within the Microsoft Authenticator app. Note: Before providing the mentioned steps, a big thank you to Pat Freeman for pointing me in the right direction. Enable browser access in the Microsoft Authenticator app When knowing the availability of the setting, …

With their support, I’m ready for another awesome year! 

Using a custom connector for device management actions in Microsoft Intune

This week is again all about the powerful combination of Microsoft Power Apps and Microsoft Power Automate with Microsoft Intune (and Microsoft Graph). In my previous post about introducing a mobile device manager app for Microsoft Intune, I relied on the standard available functionalities within the different products to show how easy it is to get started and to create your own app in Power Apps. Because of that starting point, I relied on providing application API permissions when accessing the Graph API. In that post, I also mentioned that there is another method available by using delegated API permissions when accessing the Graph API. Also, to be really honest, when an app in Power Apps is working with a signed-in user, it also makes …

Introducing a simple remote device manager app for Microsoft Intune

This new year starts with something completely new. That means, some technology that hasn’t been part of any of the posts on my blog before. Inspired by some posts of Courtenay Bernier, I took some time to dive into the world of Microsoft Power Apps and Microsoft Power Automate, in combination with Microsoft Intune (and Microsoft Graph). This post will cover how I’ve used those technologies – with almost no custom code – to create a simple remote device manager app for Microsoft Intune. I’ll also hope that this post will show the power of this combination and inspire more readers to dive into that world. Basic knowledge of the mentioned technologies is required, as this post won’t be completely step-by-step and won’t provide a …
