Endpoint analytics settings

From the settings page, you can select General or Baseline. Each of these settings is described below:

General settings

The General page in Settings allows you to see if Intune startup performance data collection has been enabled. It's automatically enabled for all your devices by default when you select Start to enable user-experience analytics. You can go to the Intune data collection policy node to change the set of devices on which boot and sign in records are collected.

Intune data collection policy

To assign this setting to a subset of devices, Create a profile with the following information:

  • Platform: Select Windows 10 and later

  • Profile: Select Windows health monitoring

  • Name: Enter a descriptive name for the profile, like Intune data collection policy

  • Description: Enter a description for the profile. This setting is optional, but recommended.

  • In Configuration Settings:

    • Health Monitoring: Select Enable to collect event information from supported Windows 10 devices

    • Scope: Select Endpoint analytics. Basic scope is not used by endpoint analytics.

  • Use the Scope tags and Applicability rules to filter the profile to specific IT groups or devices in a group that meet a specific criteria.

Configuration Manager data connector

To connect your Configuration Manager hierarchy with Endpoint analytics, you'll need to enable Microsoft Endpoint Manager tenant attach.

Once connected, you can choose which devices you'd like to target for Endpoint analytics in the Configuration Manager console.

Note

Some devices, such as non-Windows devices, are not eligible for Endpoint analytics, but may be eligible for device actions with Microsoft Endpoint Manager tenant attach. Including these devices in your targeted collection will have no effect on Endpoint Analytics.

By sharing anonymized data and aggregate metrics, enrolled organizations keep the All organizations (median) baseline updated. You can revoke consent to share this data at any time. When you revoke consent, it disables reports that rely on data for calculating insights like Startup performance or Recommended software. The data currently in the reports immediately becomes stale and new data isn't added. Data prior to revoking consent will display for up to 60 days until the historical data is no longer available.

To revoke consent:

  1. On the Endpoint analytics settings page, clear the checkbox that states I consent to share anonymized and aggregate metrics to see updated Endpoint analytics scores and insights.
  2. Select Yes to confirm the action.
  3. Optionally, stop gathering data.

Baseline management

You can compare your current scores and subscores to others by setting a baseline.

  1. There's a built-in baseline for All organizations (median), which allows you to compare your scores to a typical enterprise.

    Important

    We anonymize and aggregate the scores from all enrolled organizations to keep the All organizations (median) baseline up-to-date. You can stop gathering data at any time.

  2. You can create new baselines based on your current metrics to track progress or view regressions over time. Select the Create new button and give your new baseline a name. We recommend a name that includes the date, so it's easier to select from the drop-down in the reports pages.

  3. There's a limit of 100 baselines per tenant. You can delete old baselines that are no longer needed.

  4. Your current metrics will be flagged red and show as regressed if they fall below the current baseline in your reports. Because it's perfectly normal for metrics to fluctuate from day to day, you can set a regression threshold, which defaults to 10%. With this threshold, metrics are only flagged as regressed if they've regressed by more than 10%.
