So working on understanding Co-Management in a effort to slowly transition my SCCM environment to Intune. I created the AnyConnect app to deploy in Intune and it installs and uninstalls beautifully using a security group I created called Intune - App Deployment Workload that I added to Required and Uninstall separately - meaning when the security group was applied to Required it installed, and when I removed it from there and added to Uninstall, it worked there. Now I am trying make this an Available Application. I removed this particular device from getting the SCCM deployment of the same application. It removed itself from both Software Center and Company Portal. I have switched the Client Settings for the collection that the comanaged test laptop is in to use Company Portal and refreshed policies, rebooted, yadda yadda yadda. I still am not seeing AnyConnect show in Company Portal as an available app. Do I need to give this more time or force a few more syncs? Not sure how to ask this next question - Will an application from SCCM have more weight than an Intune application? Just trying to wrap my head around this so i can move forward with comanagement for all.

    Will an application from SCCM have more weight than an Intune application?
    After you transition this workload, any available apps deployed from Intune are available in the Company Portal. Apps that you deploy from Configuration Manager are available in Software Center. https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/mem/configmgr/comanage/workloads#client-apps

    do not make the application as required and available to the same group. check if you are into this.
    It shouldnt take that long for apps to see it in the company portal if it is deployed in the right way from intune.

    Thanks,

    I think I figured it out. Device Groups don't work, but user groups do? Correct?

    So if someone could clarify, I believe I fully understand this:

    REQUIRED and UNINSTALL should be applied to Device Groups and AVAILABLE should be applied to USER GROUPS? Can REQUIRED and UNINSTALL be applied to USER GROUPS? or just DEVICE GROUPS?

    Whole new way of thinking now. Love it.

    you can deploy the apps to user groups/device groups as required/uninstall and it is supported.

    @Matt Dillon , Yes, your understanding is correct. For Available assignment , it is only for user group. And for REQUIRED and UNINSTAL assignment, it can be applied to either user group or device group. Here is a link with more details for the reference.

    Hope it can help.
