Creating a Windows Intune Policy

Updated: November 1, 2013

Applies To: Windows Intune

In the Windows Intune administrator console, you can create a policy that is based on a template and deploy the policy, or you can save the policy so that you can make additional changes before you deploy the policy. You can create a policy that is based on recommended settings or you can create a custom policy.

noteNote
If you select the Windows Intune Center Settings template, the only available option is to Create and Deploy a Custom Policy.

For information about how to avoid conflicts between Windows Intune and Group Policy, see Planning Around Group Policy When Using Windows Intune.

  2. In the workspace shortcuts pane, click the Policy icon.

  4. Select a template on which to base the new policy, click Create and Deploy a Policy with the Recommended Settings, and then click Create Policy.

    noteNote
    The name of policy is a combination of the template name, date, and time.
