Reset and Delete from Intune Devices in windows


Hi All

When a Windows device is deleted from Intune, the device is reset and enrolled back again, it’s back in its direct group memberships before it was deleted. Is this expected behaviour?

    If a device is wiped, deleted from Intune, and re-enrolled into Intune, the device remains in the group’s yes because it still exists in Entra. So how are you managing this, for example, the device is enrolled with a new user, but you don’t want those ‘legacy’ groups back with it. Deleting from Entra means it must be deleted from Autopilot first, which is not ideal at all. I suppose it’s a case of careful planning with device group membership.

    That depends on how you do it.
    If you delete a device in the Intune admin centre, it is only a softdelete – so if the same device comes in again with the same identifier. Then the answer is yes.

    Have you deleted the device from Autopilot/Entra too?

    If you delete the device in Intune but not entra, then yes, this is expected. This is generated by entra, and that is what determines membership. If the guild is the same, the membership is the same.
