Troubleshooting Intune app installation issues

This article gives troubleshooting guidance for when app installations fail for Microsoft Intune-managed apps. The Intune Troubleshoot pane provides failure details, including details about managed apps, to help you address user help requests. For detailed information, see Use the troubleshooting portal to help users at your company. In the Managed Apps pane, you can find information about the end-to-end lifecycle of an app for each individual device. You can view installation issues, such as when the app was created, modified, targeted, and delivered to a device.


For specific app installation error code information, see Intune app installation error reference.

    The same app could be assigned to multiple groups but with different intended actions (intents) for the app. For instance, a resolved intent for an app will show excluded if the app is excluded for a user during app assignment. For more information, see How conflicts between app intents are resolved.
    If an installation failure occurs for a required app, either you or your help desk will be able to sync the device and retry the app install.

The app installation error details will indicate the problem. You can use these details to determine the best action to take to resolve the problem. For more information about troubleshooting app installation issues, see Android app installation errors and iOS app installation errors.

User Group targeted app installation does not reach device

If you have app installation problems, consider the following actions:

  • If the app does not display in the Company Portal, ensure the app is deployed with Available intent and that the user is accessing the Company Portal with the device type supported by the app.
  • For Windows BYOD devices, the user needs to add a Work account to the device.
  • Check if the user is over the Microsoft Entra device limit:
    1. Navigate to Microsoft Entra Device Settings.
    2. Make note of the value set for Maximum devices per user.
    3. Navigate to Microsoft Entra users.
    4. Select the affected user and click Devices.
    5. If user is over the set limit then delete any stale records that are no longer needed.
  • For iOS/iPadOS ADE devices, ensure that the user is listed as Enrolled by User in the Intune devices Overview pane. If it shows NA, then deploy a config policy for the Intune Company Portal. For more information, see Configure the Company Portal app.
