Microsoft Intune Guide: DEP workflow
Required environment’s information
You need to first setup all target prerequisites before proceeding with this guide.
These prerequisites must be done if you have any devices enrolled using Apple's Device Enrollment Program (or DEP).
Access to Apple Business Manager portal
You must have access to the Apple Business Manager portal where both your Source and Target Tenants are configured.
This is mandatory so that you can upload the DEP device list CSV file generated by Exodus and associate those devices to the Target Tenant virtual server.
Setup your Target Tenant's DEP Profile
Before proceeding with the migration, you need to check the configuration of your DEP profile in your Target's Microsoft Endpoint Manager admin center in Devices › Enroll device > Apple enrollment > Enrollment program tokens, then select the corresponding DEP configuration.
Configure the DEP profile
In order to allow your users to re-enroll correctly after their device is wiped, you need to configure your Target Tenant's DEP profile with the following settings:
- Set User Affinity to
Enroll with User Affinityto enable authentication screen during enrollment.
- Select one of the authentication method to either
Setup Assistantto let Apple display the authentication screen, or
Company Portalto force your user to authenticate using the Microsoft Intune Agent app.
Setup the DEP default profile
Next, you must set a default DEP profile in Devices › Enroll device > Apple enrollment > Enrollment program tokens or Exodus will not be able to synchronize your DEP devices correctly during the migration:
- Select the corresponding DEP configuration
- Click on Set default profile
- Select the corresponding profile in the iOS Enrollment Profile
- Click Save.
Declare your DEP devices as Corporate devices
Any DEP devices following the Legacy workflow (without Full Device Wipe) will be registered as Personnal once re-enrolled.
To avoid this situation and ensure your devices will be declared as Corporate once re-enrolled, you should use the Corporate Device Identifier feature with the DEP device list CSV file generated by Exodus before the devices migrations.
Go to Devices › Enroll device > Corporate device identifiers
