Provision apps using enterprise modern app management

Bevan Thomas 20 Reputation points


I was trying to provision apps for multiple users using the enterprise modern app managment CSP.

The applications are installed only for the users that were logged in while the app was deployed.On logging to other users, the app is not installed.The application does not show up on the access work or school page.I dont see any failure events.

this happens for some applications.What could be the reason here?

    Are these apps imported from MS Store? Basically modern apps should work like that, most of them are tighted to user profile. Common way is to assign this app to all users, so the second user will get its own installation after sign-in, but it might take a while. It also depend on the app. You can also try to download offline installer of the app and during creation App in Intune select System contex instead of User context. But these options depends on the app you are importing.

    @Bevan Thomas, Thanks for posting in Q&A.

    Could you please confirm us that do you deploy this app using custom CSP profile?

    Based on my experience, if you assign the policy to user group, only when the assigned users (enrolled users) login in device, the app will be installed, however, if you assign the policy to device group, the app will be installed on the device, no matter what kind of user login in this device, the user can user the app. So, please check your policy assignment.

    Please try above information, if there is any update, feel free to let me know.

    Hi Bevan Thomas,

    Thank you for posting in the Q&A Forums.

    When using the Enterprise New Style Application Management CSP to preprovision an application for multiple users, if the application is installed only on the user who is logged in at the time of deployment and not on the other users, there may be several reasons:

    Application scoping issues:

    Some applications may be set up for user-wide installation instead of device-wide installation. This means that the application is installed only in the context of the current user and not in the context of all users.

    Configuration file issues:

    The device management configuration file may be installing the application only for the current user and not for all users.

    Permission issues:

    Application installation may require specific permissions that are not granted in the context of other users.

    Application compatibility:

    Some applications may behave inconsistently in different user contexts, possibly due to limitations or design issues within the application itself.

    Best regards
