Rename Device in Azure AD and Intune

June 7, 2017

Scenario

You joined a device to Azure AD then later on renamed it.  The display name is never updated in Azure AD or Intune.  The resolution?  Change the display name using PowerShell of course!

Steps

  • If you don’t already have it get the Azure AD PowerShell module here
  • Once the module is installed open PowerShell and connect to Azure AD:

$credential = Get-credential

Connect-AzureAD -Credential $credential

  • Once connected get the objectID of the device you need to update:

Get-AzureADDevice (this will display a list of all Azure joined devices and their objectID’s)

  • Using the objectID of the device you wish to update type the following:

Set-AzureADDevice -objectID “objectID of device” -displayname “new display name”

  • Confirm changes made in Azure AD and Intune
  • Confirm via powershell

Get-AzureADDevice -objectID “objectID of device”

Done!
