Backup and Restore your Microsoft Intune configuration with PowerShell!

6/25/20: BREAKING Update: IntuneBackupAndRestore v2.0.0 released, which relies on the Microsoft.Graph.Intune PowerShell module instead of MSGraphFunctions Thanks to community feedback and with the version 2.0.0 release of the IntuneBackupAndRestore PowerShell Module, the MSGraphFunctions PowerShell Module is now deprecated and will no longer be maintained by me.
