Scanning mobile devices from Intune with a Microsoft Cloud Services Credential is a feature introduced in Lansweeper 8.3. You will need to update your installation if you are running a lower Lansweeper version.

In Lansweeper version 8.3, we introduced the Microsoft Cloud Service credential, which can be used to scan Intune. This credential makes full use of Modern Authentication and the Microsoft Graph API, using application permissions.

With an Intune V2 scanning target you'll be able to scan Android, iOS (iPhone and iPad) and Windows Phone mobile devices enrolled in Intune.


To scan mobile devices from Intune with a Microsoft Cloud Services Credential, make sure that:

  • You've already set up your Microsoft Cloud Services application.
  • You're in possession of your Microsoft Cloud Services application's Application (client) ID, Directory (tenant) ID, and Client secret or certificate. These are obtained when creating the application.

Add permissions to the Microsoft Graph application to scan Intune data

  1. Open your company's Azure portal and navigate to App registrations. 
  2. Select the app you've already created and select the API permissions tab in the left-hand menu.
  3. On the API permissions page, click Add permission and select Microsoft Graph from the API list.  
  4. As we are setting up the Microsoft Graph API to enforce modern authentication, you will need to add Application permissions. Start by selecting Application permissions.
  5. Add the DeviceManagementManagedDevices.Read.All API permission and select Save. This permission is required to scan your Intune data.
  6. Admin consent must still be granted. Select Grant admin consent for <organization> and click Grant in the resulting pop-up.

    The added permissions should now show Granted for <organization>.
