Desktop Analytics is a cloud-based service that integrates with Configuration Manager. The service provides insight and intelligence for you to make more informed decisions about the update readiness of your Windows clients. It combines data from your organization with data aggregated from millions of devices connected to Microsoft cloud services.

In order to enable the Desktop Analytics Connector you must be running ConfigMgr 1902 with Update Rollup 4500571 or later installed.
Navigate to “\Administration\Overview\Cloud Services\Azure Services” in the CM Console and select Configure Azure Services in the Azure Services Node.
Select “Desktop Analytics” and click next.
Select your Azure Environment, at this time Azure Gov is not supported.
Select browse and then create the server application, Fill out the Name and validity period and select sign in.
Select the Server App and click OK.
Enter your Commercial ID, Diagnostic Data Levels and select next.
Note: If you haven’t setup Device Health in Azure then you will need to complete that following these steps:
Select next on the Office Diagnostics Data Screen.
Select next on the Available functionality screen.
Configure display name, target collections and click next.
Select next on the summary screen.
Select close on the completion screen.
At this point it could take a couple hours for data to become available in Desktop Analytics. You can monitor the Connection Health by navigating to the Connection Health Node in the CM Console “\Software Library\Overview\Desktop Analytics Servicing\Connection Health”
I hope this helps anyone having issues getting this setup and we will dig further into Desktop Analytics in a future blog post. Additional information can be found at https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sccm/desktop-analytics/tutorial-windows10
