Phase 1: Build out your Microsoft 365 Enterprise test environment

If you just want to enroll iOS and Android devices in a lightweight way with the minimum requirements, follow the instructions in Lightweight base configuration.

If you want to enroll iOS and Android devices in a simulated enterprise, follow the instructions in Pass-through authentication.

Note

Testing automated licensing and group membership does not require the simulated enterprise test environment, which includes a simulated intranet connected to the Internet and directory synchronization for a Windows Server AD forest. It is provided here as an option so that you can test automated licensing and group membership and experiment with it in an environment that represents a typical organization.

Phase 2: Enroll your iOS and Android devices

First, use the instructions in Install and sign in to the Company Portal app to customize the Microsoft Intune Company Portal app for your test environment.

Next, use the instructions in Set up access to your company resources to enroll an iOS device.

Next, use the instructions in Enroll your Android device in Intune to enroll an Android device.

Phase 3: Manage your iOS and Android devices remotely

Microsoft Intune provides both remote lock and passcode reset capabilities. If someone loses their device, you can lock the device remotely. If someone forgets their passcode, you can reset it remotely.

To lock an iOS or Android device remotely:

  1. Sign in to the Azure portal at https://portal.azure.com with the credentials of your global administrator account.
  2. Click All services, type Intune, and then click Intune.
  3. Click Devices > All devices.
  4. In the list of devices, click an iOS or Android device, and then click the Remote lock action.

To reset the passcode remotely:

  1. If needed, sign in to the Azure portal at https://portal.azure.com with the credentials of your global administrator account.
  2. Click All services, type Intune, and then click Intune.
  3. Click Devices > All devices.
  4. From the list of devices you manage, click an iOS or Android device, and choose ...More. Then choose the Remove passcode device remote action.

For additional experimentation, see Available device actions.
