One of the most desirable Conditional Access policy controls is to only grant access to cloud applications if the Windows 10 devices are Azure AD Hybrid joined.

To ensure all Windows 10 devices are Azure AD Hybrid joined can be quite tricky , It is not as simple as enabling Azure AD Hybrid join in the AD connect wizard and simply synching an organizational unit that contains all of the Window 10 machines

The Windows 10 devices must be able to communicate with the Microsoft Office365 and Intune endpoints.

Microsoft Azure AD Conditional Access Policy – Report Mode only has been available for some time, however trying to demonstrate and analyze the impact of enabling the new conditional access policy was quite difficult when trying to review the activity for the new policy in the Azure AD sign in logs or even via a csv export of the policy activity.
