Office CSP

The Office configuration service provider (CSP) enables a Microsoft Office client to be installed on a device via the Office Deployment Tool (ODT). For more information, see Configuration options for the Office Deployment Tool and How to assign Office 365 apps to Windows 10 devices with Microsoft Intune. This CSP was added in Windows 10, version 1703.
