Intune is part of Enterprise Mobility + Security (EMS) suite. This is a cloud-based mobile device management (MDM) and mobile application management (MAM) solution.
In this blog, we will look at how to set up Intune environment with a trial license. A trial license can be used for up to two months. Usually, an Intune trial expires after a month and can be extended for another month.
Microsoft Azure Active Directory Tenant is required to add Intune license. When you try trial license, Azure AD Tenant can be created during this process.
Note: Ensure you are logged out of Microsoft 365 on your browser. I suggest using a private window in your browser to create a new account.
Sign up for Intune
Let’s sign up for Intune. You have two options:
1. Create a new Azure AD Tenant and add-on Intune Trial (this is demonstrated in this blog)
2. Add-on Intune trial to your existing tenant (I will cover this option in the future blog)
Create a new Azure AD Tenant and add-on Intune Trial
Open this Sign Up link in a private window (recommended) of your favourite browser and follow the prompts demonstrated below to create your own account.

- Verify your contact number by sending yourself a text or call. I will just use the text and verify my details.
- Create your business identity by providing your business name. This will create the alias with onmicrosoft.com domain. Later on you can add your custom domain and make it primary domain.
