SCCM 2012 R2 SP1 – No longer Need of Company Portal for Windows Phone 8.1

Hi all, here’s Martin serving some new Informations about the Intune Integration in System Center 2012 Configuration Manager R2 SP1.

With the newly available Service Pack 1 for SCCM 2012 R2, there is no Need to create a self-signed Company Portal for the Windows Phone 8.1. For old Windows Phone 8.0 you will still need the signed Company Portal, but who really does still use Windows Phone 8.1?

Let take a look to the Intune Subscription, when the Service Pack is applied:

The Device Settings are missing, but you will find them by right-click on the connector, or in the upper menu bar:
Configure Platforms
Configure Platforms Menu

When you check the Windows Phone Platform, you will recognize, that you can select Windows Phone 8.1 only, and you can select None:
Windows Phone Platform

On a Windows Phone 8.1, there is also no Option to download the Company Hub anymore:
Missing install Hub

This means that users have to download the Company portal manually from the Store, where a Microsoft Account is needed. But you can also deploy the new Company Portal from Microsoft as APPX file, and deploy it through SCCM.
Here is the link to the Company Portal:

Have fun 🙂

  1. After the upgrade to SCCM2012 R2 SP1 only Windows Phone 8.0 is check marked. If you select “Windows Phone 8.1 and later” the option “None” is greyed out.
