How to Create a Custom Role in Intune

In large organizations, multiple IT teams work on different projects and they need different rights. It does not make sense to provide Global administrator or Intune Service Administrator rights to everyone. That is why we have Intune Custom-based roles which can be created to handle different services. In this article, we will create a custom Intune role for the Help desk to wipe and sync the Intune devices.
