Intune Integration

Introduction

The Intune integration pulls device data from Microsoft Intune into IT Glue. Tenants and device information will sync automatically, keeping your device information accurate and up to date.

Benefits of this integration include:

  • Match data between Microsoft tenants and existing IT Glue organizations.
  • Match data between Intune devices and existing IT Glue configurations.
  • Ability to compare data between IT Glue and Microsoft Intune.

The field mappings are created automatically when you follow this knowledgebase article. For more information, refer to our Microsoft Field Mapping KB article.

If you already have an existing Microsoft Integration, you may skip down to the section “Add Permissions” to simply update your existing API connection to include the permissions required for the Intune integration.

 

Prerequisites

  • Manager or Administrator access to IT Glue
  • Microsoft Cloud Partner certified to offer delegated administration (optional) 
  • Delegated admin permissions to each of your clients' tenants through your own Microsoft admin portal, rather than direct logins to their admin portals (optional)

  3. After you enter your Microsoft login information in IT Glue, you'll be taken to the Sync your data with Microsoft screen. In the Intune tab, select the Sync Intune Devices option.

  4. Click the Save and continue button. The sync will be automatically queued in the Active Integrations main screen.
  5. By default, newly queued syncs are scheduled to take place at a later time. Use the manual sync option to prioritize the sync to start sooner. Click Actions and then Start Manual Sync.

  6. From the Active Integrations screen, you can see the overall sync status. When the sync is complete, the Status column changes from Syncing... to OK.
     

View synced Devices

IT Glue discovers tenants and devices and tries to match them to your data in your account based on the following logic:

Rule

Matches On

Organization

 Tenant name

Configuration

 Intune Device Name, MAC, Serial. 

If no organization can be matched automatically, suggestions will be made based on name similarity. If no suggestions can be made, you will have the option to create a new organization.
Standard rules are used to associate RMM data to data that is already in your account. The sync will discover and attempt to associate data coming from your RMM to data in IT Glue (PSA, imported, or manually entered data) based on the following rules recorded mentioned in the KB https://helpdesk.kaseya.com/hc/en-gb/articles/4407471889425-RMM-field-mappings

  1. From Account > Integrations, click on Actions and then Matching.

    Integrations___IT_Glue-2.png
  2. Start with the Unmatched filter to review unmatched organizations.
    mceclip1.png
  3. If you're happy with the suggested match, click Accept Suggestion to accept it. You can also search and select a different organization using the Match To column. You can also choose to ignore organizations, which means they won't count as unmatched items in subsequent syncs.

    Warning.
    If you don't see an organization, click Actions > Create Organization to create (import) it. Make sure you don't have an existing organization with a different name that you should match with first.

  4. Review all your unmatched organizations until they are all unmatched.
  5. If you change your mind about any of the matches, click Actions, select Change Match, and then manually search for and choose a different organization.

  6. Once all organizations have been matched, the same process should be followed for any unmatched configurations. From the Matched tab, select an organization that has unmatched configurations, click the Actions button, and select Match Devices.

    Match_Devices.png

  7. For any unmatched configurations, you can either accept the suggested match, search for an IT Glue configuration by entering the name in the Match To column, or create a new configuration by clicking Actions > Create Configuration.
  8. Once everything is matched, you will need to start a new manual sync. Navigate to Account > Integration > Actions > Start Manual Sync. This second manual sync will sync all contacts and organizations into IT Glue now that you've matched your organizations.
  9. When the sync is complete, click on any matched tenant to take you to the relevant organization. Then, click Configurations from the sidebar.

    Configurations.png
  10. Click on any Configuration that has corresponding Intune data and you will be able to see the additional data overlay as shown below.

Once everything is matched, the RMM setup is complete. At any time, you can come back to these instructions to discover and match new organizations and configurations from your RMM.
