Looking for a little guidance for this scenario. We have had MS Store for Business running in our environment with private store enabled only from the following policy. Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Store > Only Display The Private Store within the Microsoft Store

With Win 11, I know this just prompts a MS Store is blocked message so I've added those apps to Company Portal and that has been working fine. I am wondering with the deprecation of the Windows Store for Business coming soon what would be the avenue to take. I made a Microsoft Store app (new) available to all users but it is not showing in Company Portal. I have no issue removing that policy, but we only want users on Company owned devices to install apps we approved such as the functionality the Private Store did.

    I figured out my issue of it not showing. I was expecting it to show up first in the list of recently published apps like all other available deployments in Company Portal but that is not the case with these apparently. When I had the users search for it, they found it.
