What Does Your User Agent Say About You?


A user agent is a computer program representing a person, for example, a browser in a Web context.

Besides a browser, a user agent could be a bot scraping webpages, a download manager, or another app accessing the Web. Along with each request they make to the server, browsers include a self-identifying User-Agent HTTP header called a user agent (UA) string. This string often identifies the browser, its version number, and its host operating system.

Spam bots, download managers, and some browsers often send a fake UA string to announce themselves as a different client. This is known as user agent spoofing.

The user agent string can be accessed with JavaScript on the client side using the navigator.userAgent property.

A typical user agent string looks like this: "Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Ubuntu; Linux x86_64; rv:35.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/35.0".

The Intune management extension supports devices that are Azure AD joined, hybrid domain joined, and group policy enrolled. For the scenario of group policy enrollment, the user uses the local user account to Azure AD join their Windows 10 device.

Intune will install the Intune Management extension on the device if a PowerShell script or a Win32 app is targeted to the user or device. Windows application size is capped at 8 GB per app.

Be sure to use the latest version of the Microsoft Win32 Content Prep Tool. On the App package file pane, select the browse button.

Then, select a Windows installation file with the extension.Intune. When you're finished, select OK on the App package file pane.

Depending on the app that you chose, some values on this page might be automatically filled in. Categories make it easier for users to find the app when they browse through the company portal.

Registry key requirement : Select the type of registry key comparison that's used to determine how the requirement rule is validated. Select No (default) to search the 64-bit registry on 64-bit clients.

Script : Choose Script as the Requirement type value when you can't create a requirement rule based on file, registry, or any other method available to you in the Intune console. Script file : For a rule based on a PowerShell script requirement, if the existing code is 0, we'll detect the standard output (Stout) in more detail.

For example, we can detect Stout as an integer that has a value of 1. Select No (default) to run the script in a 64-bit process on 64-bit clients.

Select No (default) to run the script with user confirmation without signature verification. When you're finished setting the requirement rules, select OK.

The conditions for all rules must be met to detect the app. This will occur only for apps targeted with the required intent.

Select No (default) to expand any path variables in the 64-bit context on 64-bit clients. Registry : Verify based on value, string, integer, or version.

Select No (default) to run the script in a 64-bit process on 64-bit clients. Select No (default) to run the script with user confirmation without signature verification.

If the exit code is zero and Stout has data, the application detection status is installed. The second output channel indicates that the app was detected.

Stout data indicates that the app was found on the client. After you've added your rules, select Next to display the Dependencies page.

Additionally, you can sort your added dependencies based on app name and publisher. You can choose whether to install each dependent app automatically.

By default, the Automatically install option is set to Yes for each dependency. Add the dependent apps, and then click Select.

One or more dependent apps are pending a device reboot. Additionally, app reporting will show that the dependency was flagged as failed and provide a failure reason.

Each dependency will adhere to Intune Win32 app retry logic (try to install three times after waiting for five minutes) and the global re-evaluation schedule. Also, dependencies are applicable only at the time of installing the Win32 app on the device. Available for enrolled devices : Users install the app from the company portal app or the company portal website.

After you select your groups, you can also set End user notifications, Availability, and Installation deadline. If you don't want this app assignment to affect groups of users, select Included under the MODE column.

In the Edit assignment pane, change the mode value from Included to exclude. Select OK to close the Edit assignment pane.

The Overview pane for the LOB app appears. Microsoft Intune is a cloud-based service that focuses on mobile device management (MDM) and mobile application management (MAM).

You control how your organization’s devices are used, including mobile phones, tablets, and laptops. You can also configure specific policies to control applications.

Intune also allows people in your organization to use their personal devices for school or work. Intune is part of Microsoft's Enterprise Mobility + Security (EMS) suite.

Deploy and authenticate apps on devices -- on-premises and mobile. Once enrolled, they receive your rules and settings through policies configured in Intune.

For example, users enroll their devices if they want full access to your organization resources. Configure devices so they meet your security and health standards.

Remove organization data if a device is lost, stolen, or not used anymore. Mobile application management (MAM) in Intune is designed to protect organization data at the application level, including custom apps and store apps.

Do a selective wipe by removing only organization data from apps. So personal information is isolated from organizational IT awareness.

Data accessed using organization credentials are given additional security protection. Help secure access on personal devices by restricting actions users can take, such as copy-and-paste, save, and view.

When users sign in with their personal identity, those same protections aren't applied. Intune integrates with Azure AD to enable a broad set of access control scenarios.

For example, require mobile devices be compliant with organization standards defined in Intune before accessing network resources, such as email or SharePoint. Likewise, you can lock down services, so they're only available to a specific set of mobile apps.

Learn how to deploy Security Agents via Line-of-Business App on Intune interface for Windows 10 machines enrolled in Azure. Prior to deployment, make sure the client machine is enrolled to Azure.

Azure AD premium supports “Automatic enrollment”. “Some” is used as the User scope to allow admin to have flexibility on which groups to have the automatic enrollment feature.

Select Some from the MAM Users scope to manage data on workforce's devices. Take the role of an Intenser and enroll a Windows 10 device into Microsoft Intune.

The added account will be shown as part of the Access work or school settings on the Windows Desktop. Use the Azure Active Directory (AAD) account to Sign in this Desktop.

Verify that there is an additional device enrolled within Intune. Use Intune to add and assign a client app to company's workforce.

One of an admin's priorities is to ensure that end users have access to the apps they need to do their work. Login to FBS Services web console.

Under the same “+Add Security Agents” interface on step 1.e, click Instruction to service providers. A URL will be shown, click Copy Identifier.

In the Command-Line arguments box enter “Abandon=0 IDENTIFIER=”. After App is ready to deployed Intune, it can now be assigned to groups of users or devices.

Use the following steps to assign an app to a group: Select Available for enrolled devices in the Assignment type dropdown box.

Click Select > OK > OK > Save to assign the group. On Windows 10 device, if User Account Control (UAC) is enabled, it will require you to click Yes to allow agent installer to make changes to let installation to push through.

UAC can be advised to be temporarily disabled to let agent be deployed properly and avoid prompt to show on user end. Use the following steps to verify that the app is available to the user of the enrolled device.

Log on to the enrolled Windows 10 Desktop device. Also sign in to the device using an account contained in the group assigned to the app.

I'm a bit confuse with Intune standalone licensing options. With Intune, it's cheaper to purchase 2 device licenses than a user one but it looks that it's made for limited used like kiosk computer...

For question two: What should I purchase for an employee that only has one corporate Windows Computer + an iPhone? Each device that accesses and uses the online services and related software (including System Center software) must have a device license.

If you have feedback for Techno Subscriber Support, contact ESP enables users to track both the completed and remaining tasks in the provisioning process.

It also enables IT administrators to block access to the device until the required security policies and applications are installed. The ESP can be used as part of any Windows Autopilot provisioning scenario.

For more information about how to configure the ESP, see Set up the Enrollment Status Page It's used to track the installation of the Sidecar agent (Intune Management Extension) and Win32 apps.

It's responsible for delivering the ESP payload that's configured from Intune. The payload includes ESP settings such as the timeout period, applications that are required to be installed and so on.

The first three steps depend on the Windows Autopilot deployment scenario. In user -drive mode, these steps are immediately reported as being completed because they either aren't required or have finished before ESP starts.

This step isn't required in Windows Autopilot user -driven mode. At this step, the device completes the Trusted Platform Module (TPM) attestation process and sends its hardware hash to Azure AD to prove its identity.

When the hardware hash is imported, the Device Directory Service (DDS) creates the computer object. This error may also be caused by an issue that's related to TPM attestation.

The user or device is not authorized In self-deploying mode and white glove deployment, the TPM doesn't meet the minimum requirements. If you receive this error message, check the User Device Registration event logs.

Also check the MDM diagnostic log file for any TPM-related error in Center_Enrollaik.txt and TpmHliInfo.txt. At this step, the device calculates the policies and apps that are required to be tracked.

Before the tracking policy is created, you will see all subtasks in the Identifying state. Only SCEP certificate profiles deployed in device context are installed.

All LOB, Microsoft Store for Business and Win32 apps that are deployed in device context are installed. In user -driven mode for hybrid Azure AD join, the user is redirected to the Windows sign-in screen to enter the on-premises credentials to obtain the Primary Refresh Token (PRT).

After authentication is completed, the user is brought back to the ESP to finish the remaining subtasks. By using the PRT, the user can communicate with the service and start installing the targeted policies and apps.

Therefore, the user can't communicate with the service to evaluate the targeted apps and policies. Therefore, the account setup is stuck on Identifying until the ESP times out and fails.

In this situation, we recommend that you send a custom CSP to disable the account setup phase to avoid the potential time-out. Only SCEP certificate profiles that are deployed in user context are installed.

All LOB, Microsoft Store for Business and Win32 apps that are deployed in user context are installed. Online-licensed Microsoft Store for Business apps that are deployed in user context can be installed.

All ESP settings and tracking information are logged in the device registry. In this section, we'll show you how to collect MDM diagnostic log files and look for information in the registry.

When a timeout occurs in the ESP, the user can select the option to Collect logs. You can also collect logs through a Command Prompt window on the device.

For self-deploying, white glove, and any other scenarios in which a physical device is used, enter the following command: For ESP troubleshooting, the MDMDiagReport_RegistryDump. Reg file contains all registry keys that are related to MDM enrollment, such as enrollment information, Autopilot profile settings, policies, and applications that are being installed by Intune.

To use the script to examine the generated log file, run the following PowerShell command: Starting in Windows 10, version 1903, a new CSP EnrollmentStatusTracking is added.

This CSP adds the following tracking information and installation status to the device registry: During ESP, Sidecar tracks only Win32 apps (no PowerShell scripts).

The Locked value under the Apps subway shows whether the device usage is blocked until this stage is completed. The TrackingPoliciesCreated value under the Apps\PolicyProviders\Sidecar subway shows the status of tracking policies created for the device setup phase.

The InstallationState value under each App\Tracking\Sidecar\Win32App_{Aphid} subway shows the installation status of the Win32 app that's deployed in device context. If the value of InstallationState for any app is 4, ESP stops installing applications.

In this case, check the Intune Management Extension log file for the cause. The ESPTrackingInfo subway This subway contains diagnostics information for all applications and policies that are tracked by ESP and the status of each app and policy during specific timestamps for the device setup and account setup phases.

For each LOB (MSI) app, a subway is created under ESPTrackingInfo\Diagnostics\ExpectedMSIAppPackages to record the installation status. If no MSI app is targeted, the subway contains only the state of the Intune Management Extension application package.

For each SCEP certificate profile, a subway is created under ESPTrackingInfo\Diagnostics\ExpectedCertificateProfiles to record the installation status. The name of the subway is the date and time when the status of the SCEP certificate profile is logged.

For each Microsoft Store for Business app that's deployed in device context, a subway is created under ESPTrackingInfo\Diagnostics\ExpectedModernAppPackages to record the installation status. It contains the installation state of Win32 apps that are deployed in user context, and the creation status of the tracking policy for the account setup phase.

Welcome to today’s post titled Intune Management Extension Deep Dive Level 300. This post intends to help you to easily identify the reason why a particular win32 app deployment from Intune ends up in an error state.

Before we start with the actual content, and since this post targets Level 300 knowledge, let’s understand first how an application is packaged to be deployed as a win32 app from Intune. However, Intune cannot deploy an application a .EXE app package to an endpoint natively.

Compresses the contents of Source folder as specified to create a.Intune file and encrypts it using SHA256 algorithm. Creates another subfolder named Metadata under the IntuneWinPackage folder where it stores the encryption info to Detection.xml file.

If you wanted to retrieve the source contents from a win32 app package uploaded to Intune, check this awesome blog post on the same by Oliver Kieselbach. In a nutshell, the activity as performed by the Intune Management Extension (IME) agent to handle a win32 app deployment can be summarized as below.

The IME agent on the managed Windows endpoint polls the Intune service to check for any active app deployment, and if found, starts processing the application as per the conditions (Applicability) and criteria (Detection) as set by Admin while creating the app package. IME Agent has to go through the following phases to process a Win32 app deployment on the endpoint.

Polling Phase Start Retrieve Content Metadata Pre-Install Detection Applicability Extended Requirements Download Integrity Check and Unzip Installation Post-Install Detection Set Compliance Report Status Polling Phase IME agent starts application polling to query available/required Win32 app.

IME agent post dependency check, if the app is standalone, starts running the Detection Logic For MSI code based detection, Sidecar will run a Wei query against the MSI code defined. Only if pre-install detection is determined as False, IME agent will check the applicability and extended requirements.

servicenow intune apk agent version

If all parameters are satisfied, the IME agent will proceed with the download of the package. IME agent creates the installer process in Machine/ User session based on app deployment context.

Only if post-install detection is determined as True, the app install is deemed a success by the IME agent. Based on the post-install detection result, IME sets the compliance state and creates app report to be sent back to service.

It is recommended to exclude the locations as used by IME to be monitored by an AV as it may interfere in the process. Not very common, but if IME fails to get an elevated token for the user, can result in Access is denied.

However, for each retry, IME will start from the beginning of the app processing phase, as such the detection, applicability, extended requirements will again be checked. Even if the installation is actually done but the detection rule is not capable of checking the right place, will result in IME report the same as a failure.

Microsoft recommends that you have a Conditional Access policy for unsupported device platforms. For example, some organizations may choose to not require multi-factor authentication when their users are connected to the network in a trusted location such as their physical headquarters.

intune microsoft app management windows ios portal device knox mam devices mdm azure android mspoweruser samsung enhanced ad classic discontinue

By default, all newly created Conditional Access policies will apply to all client app types even if the client apps condition is not configured. Sign-ins from legacy authentication clients don’t support MFA and don’t pass device state information to Azure AD, so they will be blocked by Conditional Access grant controls, like requiring MFA or compliant devices.

The Configure toggle when set to Yes applies to checked items, when set to No it applies to all client apps, including modern and legacy authentication clients. Modern authentication clients Browser These include web-based applications that use protocols like SAML, Federation, OpenID Connect, or services registered as an OAuth confidential client.

When policy blocks the use of Exchange Actively the affected user will receive a single quarantine email. This email with provide information on why they are blocked and include remediation instructions if able.

By selecting Other clients, you can specify a condition that affects apps that use basic authentication with mail protocols like IMAP, MAPI, POP, SMTP, and older Office apps that don't use modern authentication. This example would create a policy that only allows access to Microsoft Azure Management from devices that are either hybrid Azure AD joined or devices marked as compliant.
