Dynamic Group Based on Enrollment Profile in Intune

A dynamic group membership updates automatically based on defined rules. You can create attribute-based rules to update the group membership. You can create a dynamic group in Entra ID for users or devices. However, you can’t create a rule that contains both the user and the device. You an add multiple membership rules in a dynamic device group.

In this article, we will explain how to create azure AD dynamic group / Intune dynamic device group based on device enrolment profile. You can have multiple enrolment profiles for different user groups or departments based on business requirements. The business units may also need different applications and configurations for different set of users.

You can create Azure dynamic group based on enrolment profiles and assign Microsoft Intune applications, device configuration, device restriction, and other policies on that Azure AD/Entra ID group. This automate the administration and no manual intervention is required for the device once enrolled. You can create dynamic groups for Windows Autopilot enrolment profiles, iOS Automated device enrolment (ADE) profiles, and Android enrolment profiles.
