SCCM 2012 + Intune – Remote Passcode Reset on Windows Phone 8.1

In this post I would like to cover the topic of the Remote Passcode Change of a Windows Phone 8.1 Device when used as a Intune enrolled, where Intune is integrated to System Center 2012 Configuration Manager.
Open your SCCM Console and navigate to the Device where you would like to reset the Passcode. Right-Click on the Device and select “Remote Device Actions”, in the opening Fly-out choose “Reset Passcode”:
Reset Remote Passcode

You will be asked for confirmation, because the user of the Device will not be able to use it until you told the new passcode to the user:
Passcode Reset confirmation
On the device, within a minute, the screen will be locked, and the information is given, that the user should contact the helpdesk to gain access to the new passcode:
Contact Helpdesk for passcode
If you have to provide a new passcode to a user, go again to the particular Device, Right-Click on the Device and select “Remote Device Actions”, in the opening Fly-out choose “View Passcode State”:
open View Passcode state
In the opening window, you can see the new Device passcode:
View Passcode State

How nice is that?! 🙂
