Intune Feature Support Approved Elevation for EPM (Endpoint Privilege Management) is coming soon as per MS Intune roadmap. Everyone should not have local admin access on Windows devices. How do you manage installing apps and other privileged access requirements for end users?
Microsoft recently updated the Microsoft Intune Endpoint Privilege Management (EPM) roadmap; more details about the rollout plan are below. The EPM allows your organization’s users to run as standard users (without administrator rights) and complete tasks that require elevated privileges.
To configure the EPM policies and check the reports, your account must be assigned sufficient permissions from Intune. The two Intune roles that provide appropriate access are Endpoint Privilege Manager and Endpoint Privilege Manager.
The helpdesk team can complete the user’s application installation requests without remotely exchanging privileged credentials and giving broad administrative access to the device. A new feature is coming soon to Support Approved elevation for EPM.
