Creating a partner device compliance policy

Create a partner device compliance policy on Ivanti EPMM and apply the desired label. The partner compliance policy reports the device compliance status to Azure for conditional access. This is done through Microsoft Intune APIs. Once the policy is pushed to the device enrolled in Ivanti EPMM and after the first check-in of the device, the device's compliance status will be reported to Azure. Thereafter, whenever there is a change in compliance status of the device - or once a week - the status will be reported. If there is no change in the compliance status, the status is reported to Intune once a week, as required by Microsoft. To view the Azure device compliance status, go to the Device Details page under the specific device.

Before you begin 

You must have an Azure Tenant ID set up. See Connecting Microsoft Azure to Ivanti EPMM.

Procedure 

  1. In Ivanti EPMM, go to Policies & Configurations > Policies.
  2. Click Add New > Partner Device Compliance. The Add Partner Device Compliance Policy dialog box opens.
  3. Use the below form to enter your settings:

Report Device Compliance Status to Azure for iOS and Android devices

Selected by default. If you do not see this field, you need to set up your Azure Tenant ID first. See Connecting Microsoft Azure to Ivanti EPMM.

If the Report Device Compliance Status to Azure for iOS and Android devices check box is enabled, and the compliance policy is applied to the client, the client will display the option in Settings under "Microsoft 365 Access." The compliance status of the device will be then reported to Azure under the following conditions:

  • when device is out of compliance

  • when the device is compliant

  • when the device returns to compliance after being out of compliance

  • If there is no change in the status, a report is sent once a week / every seven days.
