This week is all about the enrollment status page for Windows 10, version 1803 and later, devices. Yes, I know that I’m not the first to write about this subject and I won’t be the last either, but I really thought that this feature deserves and demands a place on my blog. With the recent updates to Microsoft Intune, it’s now possible to enable the enrollment status page, as a preview feature, for Windows 10, version 1803 and later devices. This feature is often mentioned in combination with Windows AutoPilot, and it’s a great addition, but it’s good to remember that it’s actually applicable to any Azure AD joined (and Intune managed) Windows device. Not just Windows AutoPilot. In this post I’ll walk through the configuration options, followed by the end-user experience related to the configuration options.
Let’s start by walking through the configuration options for the Windows enrollment status page. The following 5 steps walk through those configuration options, with step 4 detailing the actual configuration options and the related behavior.
|1||Open the Azure portal and navigate to Intune > Windows enrollment > Enrollment Status Page (Preview) to open the Enrollment Status Page (Preview) blade;|
|2||On the Enrollment Status Page (Preview) blade, select Default to open the All Users blade;|
|3||On the All Users blade, select Settings to open the All Users – Settings blade;|
|4b||On the All Users – Settings blade, select Yes with Block device use until all apps and profiles are installed to prevent users from using the device before it’s completely configured and to enable further configuration options for the enrollment status page during OOBE;|
|4c||On the All Users – Settings blade,
|5||On the All Users – Settings blade, click Save;|
Note: At this moment I haven’t been able to see my custom error message during OOBE and I haven’t found out how to collect the log files related to the installation failures as an end-user.
Now let’s have a look at the effect of the different configuration options. When configuring the basics, which is simply enabling the enrollment status page (steps 4a), the end-user will get the experience as shown below. It shows the end-user the current status and enables the end-user to click Continue anyway at any point during the enrollment status page.
When configuring all the available options, which is basically enabling all the options (step 4b and 4c), the end-user will get the experience as shown below. It shows the en-user the current status and only provides the end-user with options after a failure. The Reset button is available because of the Allow users to reset device if installation error occurs setting and the Continue anyway link is available because of the Allow users to use device if installation error occurs setting.
Note: Not all components are actually tracking something yet. For an up-to-date list of the different tracked components, see the more information URL.
