Prerequisites for Microsoft Intune as source
Required environment’s information
You need to first setup all general prerequisites before proceeding to this guide.
Get the Exodus Companion App on your devices
This setup needs to be done in your source EMM and will differ depending on the OS of your targeted devices.
For iOS devices
Installing an app on your device fleet is broken down in 5 steps: Choose, Describe, Delegate, Distribute, and Configure.
Step 1: Deploy the Exodus Companion app
You need to add the Exodus companion app from the AppStore to your source EMM’s app catalog. From the Microsoft 365 Device Management portal, select Client apps and add an iOS app by searching the App Store for
Exodus Companion. (see fig. 1.1).
Once added, assign it to your devices, users, or groups as you usually do.
Make sure you leave the Uninstall on device removal options at No, in order for the Companion to stay and finish the process until the device is enrolled in the target EMM.
Step 2: Apply a custom app configuration
Now that your app is deployed, it still needs a tiny bit of information in order to talk to the Exodus server.
Still from the Microsoft 365 Device Management portal, in the details of the app you just deployed, on the left menu, click on App configuration policies. Click the Add button and enter a name and select the Managed devices Device enrollment type, for the iOS platform.
For the Associated app select again the app you just added. Finally select the Configuration settings.
You have two set of values to enter.
First, add the
server-url key, set it to the
String type, and the server URL for the value. This URL needs to be
https://#your-instance-name#-api.exodus.tools (assuming you access your Exodus console through
Don't forget to replace
#your-instance-name# by your real instance name which should be equal to the subdomain of your Exodus console URL.
If you access Exodus admin console with
https://example.exodus.tools/ then the server url should be
serial-number as a key, with still the type as
String, and the value should be
Click the OK, then Add buttons, your configuration is saved and deployed to your devices.
For Android devices
For Android devices, nothing needs to be done. Each user will install the companion app themselves by following a dynamic link sent to them via an email by the Exodus server when the migration starts.
For Work Profile, it's strongly recommended to approve the Exodus companion application from your Google Play Enterprise Account.
The Exodus companion application must be installed outside the Work Profile container.
But if a user tries to start their migration inside the Work Profile container, with an approved application, we can help them follow the migration steps. Otherwise, they will be redirected to an empty page on the Play Store.
For Mac computers
Migration of Mac computers from Intune is not supported in Exodus yet.
