ConfigMgr admins love extending hardware inventory and collecting data from Windows devices.
Did you know Intune can do the same?!
The answer is Intune PowerShell scripts! Also known as SideCar… IME… Intune Management Extensions…


Well, IME is just another channel that runs parallel to MDM that sort of acts like the ConfigMgr client. We deliver different features over this channel: PowerShell scripts, Win32 apps, Proactive Remediation scripts, Win32 app log collection…



Can you give us an example?
Maybe you are interested to know more about Win32_BIOS.
Run the following PowerShell one-liner on a device


 


 

Get-WmiObject -Class Win32_BIOS |
select CurrentLanguage,
Description,
EmbeddedControllerMajorVersion,
EmbeddedControllerMinorVersion,
Manufacturer,
ReleaseDate,
SerialNumber | ConvertTo-Json -Compress

 



Script outputs the following:

Beautified:


 

{
"CurrentLanguage": "en-US",
"Description": "N2EET43W (1.25 )",
"EmbeddedControllerMajorVersion": 1,
"EmbeddedControllerMinorVersion": 13,
"Manufacturer": "LENOVO",
"ReleaseDate": "20191028000000.000000+000",
"SerialNumber": "12345678"
}

 



Let’s create an Intune PowerShell script and deploy it to some users/devices to demonstrate Win32_BIOS data as an example.

Tip: <scriptId> is stored in the URL

You can access the data via the following Graph endpoint in graph explorer
https://graph.microsoft.com/beta/deviceManagement/deviceManagementScripts/<scriptID>/deviceRunStates?$expand=managedDevice


 


It turns out that we store the above-mentioned script output in a property on the service side. If you are familiar with Graph Explorer, then you can take a look at the results



In the property “resultMessage”:

How do I see the data from all devices?
Prerequisites:
Install-Module -Name Microsoft.Graph.Intune



You need one more script to retrieve your results from Graph…


 

Update-MSGraphEnvironment -SchemaVersion 'beta'
Connect-MSGraph

$result = Invoke-MSGraphRequest -HttpMethod GET -Url 'deviceManagement/deviceManagementScripts/b113448a-528a-4beb-b7d5-381a117d5184/deviceRunStates?$expand=managedDevice' | Get-MSGraphAllPages
$success = $result| Where-Object -Property errorCode -EQ 0
$resultMessage = $success.resultMessage 
$objResultMessage = $resultMessage | ConvertFrom-Json
$objResultMessage | Out-GridView

You can store the data in Log Analytics, SQL etc and visualize the way you want.
Enjoy!
