Licensing for Configuration Manager

Most licenses that include Intune also grant access to Microsoft Configuration Manager, as long as the subscription remains active, and an admin has a license assigned to administer Intune (unless you allow unlicensed admins). 

To facilitate the enrollment of existing Configuration Manager-managed devices into Intune for co-management without user hassle, co-management utilizes an Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) feature called Windows 10 auto-enrollment. For this process, it’s essential to have licenses for both Azure AD Premium (AADP1) and Microsoft Intune Plan 1. 

As of December 1, 2019, a significant change was introduced. You are no longer obligated to individually assign Intune licenses for this specific use case. Microsoft Intune now incorporates the necessary licenses for co-management, thereby simplifying the licensing process. 

Intune Device-only licenses 

Intune offers a device-only subscription service that allows organizations to manage devices not affiliated with specific users. 

Intune device licenses are applicable when a device is enrolled through any of the following methods: 

  • Windows Autopilot Self-Deploying mode  
  • Apple Device Enrollment Program without user affinity  
  • Apple School Manager without user affinity  
  • Apple Configurator without user affinity  
  • Android Enterprise dedicated  
  • Using a device enrollment manager account 

However, when a device is enrolled by using a device license, the following Intune functions aren’t supported:  

  • Intune app protection policies  
  • Conditional access  
  • User-based management features, such as email and calendaring
