Use Windows Health Monitoring profile on Windows devices in Microsoft Intune

Microsoft can collect event data, and provide recommendations to improve performance on your Windows devices. Endpoint Analytics analyzes this data, and can recommend software, help improve startup performance, and fix common support issues.

In Intune, you can create a Windows Health Monitoring device configuration profile to enable this data collection, and then deploy this profile to your devices.

Use this profile as part of your mobile device management (MDM) solution to optimize your Windows devices.

This feature applies to:

  • Windows 11 devices enrolled in Intune
  • Windows 10 version 1903 and newer devices enrolled in Intune

This article shows you how to create the profile, and enable the monitoring.

Create the profile

  1. Sign in to the Microsoft Endpoint Manager admin center.

  2. Select Devices > Configuration profiles > Create profile.

  3. Enter the following properties:

    • Platform: Choose Windows 10 and later.
    • Profile: Select Templates > Windows health monitoring.

    Note

    If you don't see Windows health monitoring in the list, then:

    1. Go to Reports > Endpoint Analytics > Settings.
    2. Select Intune data collection policy.
  4. Select Create.

  5. In Basics, enter the following properties:

    • Name: Enter a descriptive name for the profile. Name your policies so you can easily identify them later. For example, a good profile name is Windows devices: Windows Health Monitoring profile.
    • Description: Enter a description for the profile. This setting is optional, but recommended.
  6. Select Next.

  7. In Configuration settings, configure the following settings:

    • Health monitoring: This setting turns on health monitoring to track Windows updates and events. Your options:

      • Not configured: Intune doesn't change or update this setting.
      • Enable: Event information is collected from the devices, and sent to Microsoft for analytics and insights.
      • Disable: Event information isn't collected from the devices.

The next time each device checks in, the policy is applied.
