Microsoft Intune is now in the Azure portal, meaning that the workflows and functionality you are used to are now different. The new portal offers you new and updated functionality in the Azure portal where you can manage your organization's mobile devices, PCs, and apps.

You can find information about the new portal in this library, and it is continually updated. If you have suggestions you'd like to see, leave feedback in the topic comments. We'd love to hear from you.

Highlights of the new experience include:

  • An integrated console for all your Enterprise Mobility + Security (EMS) components
  • An HTML-based console built on web standards
  • Microsoft Graph API support to automate many actions
  • Azure Active Directory (AD) groups to provide compatibility across all your Azure applications
  • Support for most modern web browsers

Before you start

To use Intune in the Azure portal, you must have an Intune admin and tenant account. Sign up for an account if you don't already have one.

  • Microsoft Edge (latest version)
  • Microsoft Internet Explorer 11
  • Safari (latest version, Mac only)
