Assign licenses

As part of preparing to enroll in Microsoft Managed Desktop, you'll need to be sure you've obtained the necessary licenses. If you haven't already done this, see More about licenses for details about exactly which licenses you need.

If your license are all lined up, it's time now to assign them to your users. To do this, we recommend that you take advantage of the group-based licensing feature of Azure Active Directory.

If you have any difficulty with license assignment, contact Admin support.
