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.
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!
Alastair Sutherland commented
OMG yes. When, Microsoft? When?
What is the current update?
Yes Please! This drives me nuts

I just need to recover a device that was mistakenly deleted from Azure AD

This can be very handy to recover a bitlocker key and other scenarios
Deleted a device from Intune, looks like the Bitlocker key went with it. Realized my mistake minutes later.
I'm not aware of another location to find the Bitlocker key.
It would be great to have a recycle bin that holds the deleted item for a few days at least.

This is something that we all need. Same functionality as in the on-premise AD with its Recycle Bin.
Not sure why this was not included since the beginning since the functionality was already available in AD but hopefully it is added soon.
I just recently had an employee leave the company and there is some proprietary data on his encrypted company machine and we can't access it because the BitLocker key was stored on the ADD/Intune record and that device entry was removed when the AD account was removed.

Currently own a very expensive door stopper (laptop with deleted bitlocker key). Would be a good idea to have the ability to recover deleted keys from AAD.

yes, would love that too.
the existing cmdlet Restore-AzureADMSDeletedDirectoryObject should be renamed until then, it's kind of misleading with "Objects" when it does only cover specific O365 groups
Martins Jonass commented
Absolutely needed. External drive got locked with BitLocker with device I was backing up before reinstallstion. I didn’t know that till I connected external drive to device after reinstall. But I also deleted device in Azure AD to keep it organized.
I can’t access backup data without the BitLocker key. Please make it possible.

Absolutely needed. Something like a 30 day deletion retention would be nice, like it's done for O365 data for example.
