Like any other application in Intune, ReamJoin can be assigned to the desired user groups as (required) software. It is not necessary to install additional software on the client devices to run RealmJoin. RealmJoin will be deployed on the client devices on the next Azure sync.

Windows Defender Exceptions

RealmJoin has worked with the Microsoft Defender Team to be whitelisted from malware detection. Since Defender is using more and more machine learning mechanisms to identify potential threats and RealmJoin has several features like cloud downloaded application installations, RealmJoin might be recognized by Windows Defender as a possible threat.

While this behavior is not certain, it is recommended to implement additional Windows Defender exceptions. Create a new device configuration profile, type Device restriction, or edit your existing profile and add the following Windows Defender Antivirus Exceptions:

It`s important to configure the same path in Files and Folders and Processes. In some cases, Microsoft only checks one of this Defender Exceptions.
