Intune Error when adding Private Google Play Store App - "Upload a new APK file with a different package name"

Roy 1 Reputation point

I get the error "Upload a new APK file with a different package name" when adding a private app in the google play store in Intune.

I previously uploaded the APK as a "Line-of-Business" application. This may be causing the error. Is there a way to permanently delete the "Line-of-Business" package name?

    @Roy Thanks for posting in our Q&A.

    Please understand that the app's package name must be globally unique in Google Play (not just unique within your enterprise or Google Play Developer account). Otherwise, you will receive the Upload a new APK file with a different package name error.

    If you never use this "Line-of-Business" application again, it is suggested to delete the LOB app in intune portal and then upload the APK file to Google Play Store again to check if this error message still exists.

    If this error still exists, it seems that the same name package file has been uploaded to Google Play by others. It is needed to change the package name as an unique name.

    Hope it will clear some confusions.
