IT Pro: Unattended deployment for Azure AD-joined machines

The latest Xink application release supports AzureAD-joined machines with Azure AD login, not only on-premises AD.

There are few pre-conditions to be met:

  • only joined computers are supported, not linked work accounts;
  • only login email is supported as an employee id, say if a person logs on as john.doe@xink.io, then the employee with email "john.doe@xink.io" must exist in Xink.

How to install

Open Preferences in Xink web admin, select "Download" tab. Download IT: Download Xink Client (.MSI Package).

And visit Token Manager. Generate Domain Authentication token, if you haven't created one before. Or just copy existing token using copy icon.
Please note that the token is much longer than what is shown on the screen, using copy icon is essential.

Then use whatever software deployment system you prefer to deploy the package to domain computer. The only requirement to make things work is bypassing the token as a property value to the installer.

SCCM deployment

If you are using SCCM, you may deploy your package and write the registry keys without having to apply the template through GPO. Please refer to this KB.

Lastly please ensure to reboot the target PCs.

Intune deployment

For Intune, we followed the following howto from Microsoft :
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/intune/lob-apps-windows

Please make sure to include Xink’s Authorization Token as per the following :

Now confirm the Xink client is successfully installed on Hybrid-Domain joined device or Azure AD joined devices (It should appear on 'programs and features' as 'Xink AD Client')

And to confirm that DomainAuthtoken is deployed correctly the target device should have this registry entry.

The ‘emsclient.exe’ is executed next time the user logs in :
And signatures get updated and copied to Signatures folder inside user’s profile.
