Device compliance policies are a key feature when using Intune to protect your organization's resources. In Intune, you can create rules and settings that devices must meet to be considered compliant, such as a minimum OS version.

You can review the Microsoft documentation to learn more about Compliance Profiles.

Within N-able N-central if you navigate to a client that is connected to MS Intune, then navigate to Integrations > Microsoft Intune > Profiles > Compliance, you will be able to create, edit, and delete Compliance Policies that will sync to Microsoft Intune.

Creating Compliance Policies are limited to the following items in N-able N-central:

  • Device Properties
    • Operating System Version - This is where you can determine a Minimum OS Version and a Maximum OS Version
  • System Security
    • Password - Require a password to unlock mobile devices
    • Encryption - Encryption of data storage on device

Once you've created a Compliance Policy, you can it in Microsoft Intune by navigating to Devices > Compliance Policies.

The list of profiles only shows profiles created by N-central. Not all profiles in Intune are shown, as we do not support all of the profile options found in Intune.

Creating a Compliance Policy in Microsoft Intune will not sync into the integration with N-able N-central.
