Intune Configuration Policy - Maximum Minutes of Inactivity Until Screen Locks (Windows 10)

I am trying to push out a policy to lock the Windows 10 devices after they have been inactive for 15 minutes. I have pushed out a test policy to my device to lock after 1 minute. I can see that the policy was applied to my device, but it does not lock the screen.

Has anyone else noticed that this policy does not work even if it says that it was applied?

Does anyone know if there is a way to resolve it, or do we have to wait for an update from Microsoft?

My computer is fully updated on Windows 10 (Version 20H2 with all cumulative updates).

@CIS03-5761 Thanks for posting in our Q&A. From your description, I know that a screen lock policy is deployed to the windows 10 device successfully, but it doesn’t work. If there is any misunderstanding, feel free to let us know.

For this issue, I have done the test in my lab. Here are the details for the reference.

  1. Create a custom profile and deploy this profile to the group you want.
    Name: ScreenLock
    OMA-URI: ./Device/Vendor/MSFT/Policy/Config/DeviceLock/MaxInactivityTimeDeviceLock
    DataType:Integer
    Value: 1 (Value in minutes you want)

  2. When the deployment status of this profile is succeeded, restart the devices that you assigned.

  3. Wait a minute, and we can find that the screen is locked.

Given the situation, we suggest to restart the affected device and check again to see if the screen will be locked.

Hope it can help.

@LuDaiMSFT-0289, thanks for the response. I think your solution would have worked. However, I was unaware of the reboot being required. After I booted up my computer this morning my original screen timeout policy was applied.
