Remotely synchronize policy on Intune-enrolled devices from the Configuration Manager console

Applies to: System Center Configuration Manager (Current Branch)

You can request a policy sync for a device that is enrolled with Intune from the Configuration Manager console instead of having to request a sync from the Company Portal app on the device itself.

To do this:

  1. Select a device under Assets and Compliance > Overview > Devices.
  2. Click Send Sync Request in the Remote Device Actions menu.

After five to ten minutes, any changes in policy will be synced to the device. You can view sync request state information in a new column in device views, called Remote Sync State, as well as in the discovery data section of the Properties dialog box for each device.
