I'm trying to setup some basic group policy settings with Microsoft Intune. We have Windows 10 Enterprise installed on all our devices and they are Azure AD joined. To start I wanted to map a network share to one of the devices, but I can't find options to do so. You can create custom OMA-URI settings, but I have no idea how to set this up to map a fileshare.

I managed to setup conditional access and enfore Bitlocker encryption, but those settings are available by default. Does anyone have experience working with the custom settings? I can't find anything good in the Intune documentation, so maybe it's just not possible?


You could use a powershell script to map a network drive pretty easily.

Here is a link to a list of all available CSP's for windows 10: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/client-management/mdm/configuration-service-provider-reference

  • I wouldn't use a powershell script at logon, way too slow and huge footprint. – Swisstone Oct 10 '18 at 18:20

Originally, Group Policies were only registry settings. The drive mapping functionality that you are trying to replicate is handled by a newer extension to Group Policy known as Group Policy Preferences. From what I can tell, at this moment, Custom Configuration Service Provider settings can only tweak registry settings and WMI values.

I did see that it was possible to push Edge Favorites and Start Menu Charms. You could try pushing them with UNC paths.

I also stumbled onto a drive mapping Powershell script, which is designed to be assigned through Intune, that might work for you. Or, at least, be a good place to start.
