Start with helping users by using the awesome troubleshooting portal

This week I’m back with a new blog post, after not posting anything last week due to visiting the yearly Global MVP Summit. This week is all about creating awareness. Awareness for the troubleshooting portal (the Troubleshoot blade). The troubleshooting portal is THE best place to start with troubleshooting to help the end-users. In this post I’ll provide a complete overview of the current status of the troubleshooting portal.

Troubleshooting portal

The troubleshooting portal can be used by Intune administrators, and other delegated users like help desk operators, to view user information. The troubleshooting portal provides information about the user, the assignments for the user and the devices of the user. To get to the troubleshooting portal, simply follow the next steps.

1 Open the Azure portal and navigate to Intune > Troubleshoot (or use the short link: https://aka.ms/intunetroubleshooting);
2 On the Microsoft Intune – Troubleshoot blade, select Select user and get the information to start with troubleshooting. This will provide the overview as shown below. I will go through the different numbered items in more detail;

Item 1 – Account status

IntuneTroubleshooting_AccountStatusThis shows the status of the current Intune tenant. The logged on user does need permissions to view this information.

Item 2 – User selection

IntuneTroubleshooting_UserSelectionThis shows the name of the selected user. Simply click Change user to select a different user. All the shown information is related to the selected user.

  1. Its time you give Peter van der Woude a warning, he has 7 non compliant devices 😛
    The troubleshoot portal is a nice feature cause information was scattered around the different categories/blades.

    But a bit more info/troubleshoot in the intune portal instead on the cliënt itself for example , app deployment/installation , policy error etc would be welcome!

  2. Thanks for letting me know, RKast! 🙂

    From a device perspective, you’ve currently got the Event Viewer, the diagnostics information and the log files of the Intune Management Extension. Having said that, I know that it doesn’t cover all you need to know during troubleshooting..
