Leveraging your Azure subscription for Microsoft Intune massively reduces the requirements for on-premises infrastructure. In this post I will show you how to use Azure Blob Storage to provide the Lock Screen and Desktop background all with the power of the Microsoft Cloud.

First up you will need to create a storage account within your Azure subscription.

Go to “Containers”
Create new “Container”
Specify the name of the Container
Specify the Public Access level as “Blob”
Then click ok

Specify settings

Click on your new “Container”
