Intune policy sets

The modern way to manage and configured devices in the Microsoft Cloud is to use Intune to handle device enrolment and configuration. This can become complex quickly when you at look configuring across the different operating systems (iOS, Android, Windows, MacOS, etc) and the different policies (endpoint, compliance, restrictions, etc) because there are so many possible variations. If you then layer on a variety of users and their requirements, being consistent across the organisation can be a challenge.

Luckily, Intune now gives us something called Policy Sets which you can find in the Microsoft Endpoint Manager admin center as shown above.

As the opening screen, shown above, notes – Policy sets are basically a way to group a set of individual policy configurations together and have them applied as a group. Handy eh?

Basically, you follow through the wizard and select the policies you wish to group together and then users you wish that to apply to. You save that as an individual Policy set, of which you can create as many different ones as you like.

Once you create the policy it will be applied exactly the same as if you did each policy individually, but now you can do all that together via a single setting! You can go back in at anytime and edit the Policy sets you created.

Device manager Policy Sets allow you to easily group a variety of individual Intune policies together and apply them together to a group of users quickly and easily. This should save you lots of time over creating an individual enrolment policy and applying, then an individual compliance policy and applying, then an individual endpoint protection policy individually and so on.
