Applies To: Windows Server 2016, Windows Server 2012 R2

Join your device with Workplace Join

Note

Android workplace join requires Azure Active Directory Device Registration Service. In order to enforce conditional device policies on-premises, Directory Synchronization Tool (DirSync) must be deployed with device object write-back option enabled. At the present time, device write-back to Active Directory from Azure Active Directory can take up-to 3 hours. As such, users must wait for 3 hours to access on-premises web applications, after creating a work account. For more information about deploying Azure Active Directory Device Registration service, see, Azure Active Directory Device Registration Service Overview
