Hello,

Could you please advise on how can we force the computer to reboot after deploying an application through a Line of Business (LOB) application or via the Microsoft Store app?

Is there any settings in intune to force the reboot after the app is installed or uninstalled.?

Thank you for your assistance.

    @J-3804. Thanks for posting in Q&A. For LOB, it didn't find the option to configure reboot after the app is installed. if the app itself has the option to restart, it will do after being install or ninstalled.

    For Microsoft Store new, it only has the option to set Restart grace period. So the restart action still depends on the app itself.

    I don't find any built-in policy to control the app restart. But I find we can force device restart in Win32 app under "Device restart behavior". Maybe you can consider deploying the app via win32 type.

    Hope the above information can help.
