Endpoint Manager Newsletter – 6th May 2022

Welcome one and all to this weeks Endpoint Manager Newsletter, let’s see what awaits…

First up, we have a very thorough post from Rudy Ooms covering how to get all of your Firewall policies into Intune without having to manually create in the GUI


Next up, Moe Kinani has a very useful script to remove pinned widgets from a Windows 11 machine via Intune and using my favourite Proactive Remediations

This post from Peter van der Woude runs through configuring Controlled Folder Access via Intune, an under-used feature in my opinion. It’s well worth checking out.


This next post from Sune Thomsen gives a deep dive on the latest Microsoft functionality to automatically import on-prem GPOs into Intune

This deep dive from Jitesh Kumar gives an excellent look at app requirement rules and why you should consider using them when deploying any applications.

A second post from Rudy Ooms this week, this one looking at the pesky 65000 error you can get within Settings Catalog.


A 2-parter this week from Niels Scheffers having a look at what happens when you enable Known Folder Move in OneDrive


Technically a multi-part one again, but I’m skipping part 1 and going straight to the Intune bits. This post from Damien Van Robaeys looks at importing Intune data into Log Analytics for manipulation.

And finally, some content direct from Microsoft:

For anyone using update compliance (if you’re not, read this), it’s worth noting that the machine now has to be in Azure AD for it to report back.
