Migrate hybrid MDM users and devices to Intune standalone
Applies to: System Center Configuration Manager (Current Branch)
This article is to migrate from hybrid MDM to a cloud-only experience using Intune on Azure.
Start migrating to Intune standalone using a phased approach. With this approach, you test a small subset of users and devices while most of your users and devices are still managed with hybrid MDM. After you verify Intune functionality, start migrating more resources to Intune.
For more information, see the following articles:
The Intune Data Importer tool:
Collects data about the objects you select from your Configuration Manager hierarchy
Provides details about the objects you can select for import
Provides information about why some objects can't be imported
Lets you import selected objects into your Microsoft Intune tenant
This step is optional. It can save you time by automating the process to recreate objects from Configuration Manager to Intune.
Validate imported objects from Configuration Manager
Create new objects
Create Azure AD groups and make object assignments to these groups
Install NDES and Exchange connectors
When you complete the steps and start the migration to Intune standalone, there is no significant impact to your users.
Configure a mixed MDM authority in the same tenant. Select some users to be managed in Intune, while continuing to manage all other devices with hybrid MDM. Test that Intune functionality is working on the devices for a small subset of users before you start migrating additional users.
Change your tenant-level MDM authority from Configuration Manager to Intune. All remaining users and devices are migrated to Intune standalone. After you've thoroughly tested Intune functionality in the previous step, and have migrated most or all of your users, then change your tenant-level MDM authority.
