Microsoft Intune Enterprise Application Management
Microsoft Intune Enterprise App Management enables you to easily discover and deploy applications and keep them up to date from the Enterprise App Catalog. The Enterprise App Catalog is a collection of prepared Microsoft and non-Microsoft applications. These apps are Win32 apps that are prepared as Win32 apps and hosted by Microsoft.
Enterprise App Management is an Intune add-on as part of the Intune suite that is available for trial and purchase. For more information, see Use Intune Suite add-on capabilities.
Benefits of Enterprise App Management
The benefits of using Enterprise App Management are the following:
- Streamlined app management: You can save time and reduce complexity by streamlining the app management process. Discover and add apps directly from the Intune console.
- Stay current with updates: You're able to keep apps up-to-date by easily creating apps for the new versions of products as they're available in the catalog.
When you add an Enterprise App Catalog app, Intune prefills the following installation details:
- Commands to install and uninstall the app
- Time required to install the app
- Option to allow app uninstallation by the end user
- Installation and device restart behavior
- Return codes to indicate post-installation behavior
- Whether to install the app for system or user
Microsoft Intune prefills the detection rules that devices must meet before the app is installed:
- File size
- File version
Also, Intune prefills the requirements that devices must meet before the app is installed:
- Windows OS architecture required
- Minimum OS required
Microsoft recommends using the pre-populated fields containing specific commands and rules, however you can modify the pre-populated fields if needed.
You can also configure app specific rules used to detect the presence of the Enterprise App Catalog app where you can choose to either manually configure the detection rules or use a custom script to detect the presence of the app before installing the app.
The Enterprise App Catalog includes apps that self update. Intune will ensure the app is at least at a target minimum version, and will consider the app installed if the detected version of the app is at or above the minimum version. Self-updating apps update on client devices based on the vendor's process. Intune will report the version of the app detected on the device.
Self-updating apps may require that your tenant has network rules configured to allow an update from the app vendor.
