Deploying WPA-2 personal WIFI profiles using ConfigMgr & Intune

For hybrid environments (that being ConfigMgr integrated with Microsoft Intune), it’s not possible to deploy a WIFI profile using a pre-shared secret in the UI. This will however not prevent you from creating and deploying WPA-2 Personal security WIFI profiles in the console. You will just be deploying the WIFI profile without the WIFI password.  Windows Phone 8.1 will re-apply the same profile over and over again When users receive the WIFI profile all they have to do is add the password and they will have WIFI connection.

Intune Extensions will not install

It’s a common issue, but still worth mentioning. Being a Full Administrator is NOT the same as having full control of all features in the ConfigMgr console.
