Intune Teams Roles Responsibilities Endpoint Manager | Microsoft Intune Default Roles

Intune Teams Roles Responsibilities Endpoint Manager | Microsoft Intune Default Roles? I will discuss Intune Modern Device management roles and responsibilities in this post. I think the first version of Intune was released back in 2011 (or before that), but the large-scale adoption of Microsoft Intune started in the last two years.  

I thought it’s better to spend some time defining Intune modern device management job roles within an organization. This post will help create a baseline for Microsoft Intune R & R for your organization. In this post, we will see “Intune Teams Roles Responsibilities”.  

Modern device management roles are similar to SCCM/ConfigMgr roles but not the same. As a starting point, we can take some of the job roles from SCCM and then expand that list to produce more comprehensive modern device management-related roles and responsibilities. This will also help build Intune modern device management teams within your organization.

Following are Intune team’s Roles are responsibilities of Intune/AAD/Device management at a high level. I have segregated these roles and responsibilities depending on each feature of Intune. You can segregate these into different support organizations per your organization’s requirements.

Maybe some of the tasks can be completed by Intune L1/L2 teams within your organizations. However, some tasks require more technical skills, and those tasks would be handled by Intune/Device Management L3 teams.  

What are Intune Team’s Roles and responsibilities?

Overall I will segregate Intune roles into two(2). I have an Intune RBAC post that will help you understand the security permissions needed for each role.

  1. Intune Help Desk – First level support
  2. Intune Admin – Second or Third Level Support

More granular roles and permissions can help you to define Intune RACI matrix for your organization.
