Recycle Bin For Deleted Devices
Would be great if there was a recover-msoldevice cmdlet or some way to recover a bitlocker recovery key after a device was deleted.
Thanks for your feedback. We are looking into it and evaluating different options for solving the use cases mentioned in this thread. We will update this thread once we have more information to share.

This would really benefit everyone who uses Azure and Intune.
Accidentally deleting a device is already something that happens quite easily.
But I replaced the drive in a laptop that wasn't functioning because of the M.2 having some damage.
I then removed the device because otherwise it wouldn't re-register in Azure Hybrid AD.
The BitLocker key was linked to the account that the laptop was logged into.
So I thought I could find the bitlocker key on his account.
Alas, it only contained the key for the new drive.
So I could not extract any data from the old drive.

Just had the device account for my VM accidentally deleted by a new member of our team and the only local account I have on it is a normal user so I can't get it re-enrolled. A recycle bin to restore that account from would be really helpful right now.
Need this ASAP, what a pain in the but to not have this!

Azure Recycle Bin, just like OneDrive and User Accounts, 30 day grace period is definitely needed
Timico IT Director commented
The more flexibility to recover deleted items the better.
We all need this feature ASAP
Please implement this.

Updates? I need to be able to re-add deleted devices.
This thread is almost 1 year old. Is there a way to recover bitlocker key frm a deleted machine?
This would be a great fature as sometimes a remote wipe does not work, and the delet is the only option. If done in error there is no way to undo.

Need this and bitlocker key export ASAP
Would love to see this one getting MS attention, with AzureAd join/Autopilot deployments we're 100% depending on Azure services, a soft-delete computer object that holds bitlocker information is a necessity at this time, in addition a PS command to query BL information would also be appreciated, this way we can at least run frequent export/backup for this information for safe keeping

It would be great to have a recycle bin that holds the deleted item for a fixed retention period of time.
any chance to speed up the review process!
Has there been any traction on this? I removed a device and unable to join it back therefore I'm stuck. I deleted a device from the portal not understanding the consequences. Thanks!

Same for a Remote Locked device, if we could still locate the Unlock PIN for that device even when it's deleted from Intune (typically by the auto delete rule)
Edwin Berrios commented
Would be incredibly and particularly useful with the re-provisioning of remote devices. Have my vote(s), count me in!

One of our machines was delete due to inactivity. Now I have no way to reset because the BitLocker recovery key is no longer available in Intune. This use case was either not thought of, or it was ignored.
Chris Topp commented
That would be very helpful - I cannot reset now as I just cleaned out a record.
Christian Barnes commented
Yes, please can we have this ASAP? An intune enrolled device was recently incorrectly deleted and we have no way to undo this.
This is a must!
