- Install Microsoft apps with Intune - Fri, Dec 23 2022
The devices must meet the following requirements to install Microsoft Store apps with Intune:
- Devices should support at least two core processors to successfully install and run Microsoft Store apps.
- Devices need to support the Intune Management Extension (IME) to install Microsoft Store apps.
- Devices need to access the Microsoft Store and destination content to install Microsoft Store apps.
To install Microsoft apps with Intune, follow these steps:
Go to Microsoft Endpoint Manager portal > Apps > All Apps > Add > Select App type. Select Microsoft Store app (new) and click Select.
Under App information, search the application that you want to install, and then click Select.
If you can't find the app in Intune, it could be for one of the following reasons:
- The app is not available in your region
- The app is only available for users aged 12 and above
- The app is a paid app, which is not supported
- The app is an Android app
- The app is a Microsoft Store for Business app that is not publicly available in the consumer store
According to Microsoft, once the application is selected, the following fields are populated:
|Name of the Field||Description||Required|
|Name||The name of the app is prepopulated from the store's metadata. Enter the name of the app as it appears in the Company Portal.||Required|
|Description||The description of the app is prepopulated from the store's metadata.||Required|
|Publisher||The publisher of the app.||Required|
|Installer Type||The installer type of the application package is distinguished by either the UWP or Win32 installer types.||N/A Prefilled|
|Package Identifier||The app's unique ID in the Microsoft Store.||N/A Prefilled|
|Install behavior||The install behavior of the app, whether the app has the option of either System or User install behaviors.||Select System or User|
|Category||Select one or more of the built-in app categories, or select a category that you created.||Optional|
|Show this as a featured app in the Company Portal||Display the app prominently on the main page of the company portal when users browse for apps.||Must select Yes or No|
|Information URL||Enter the URL of a website that contains information about this app.||Optional|
|Privacy URL||Enter the URL of a website that contains privacy information for this app.||N/A Prefilled|
|Developer||Enter the name of the app developer.||Optional|
|Owner||Enter the name of the owner of this app. An example is IT department.||Optional|
|Notes||Enter any notes that you want to associate with this app.||Optional|
|Logo||Upload an icon that is associated with the app.|
Click Next to proceed.
You'll then see three types of assignments: Required, Available for enrolled devices, and Uninstall. The table below lists the assignment type details.
|Assignment Type||Assignment Options||Description|
|Required||Add group, Add all users, Add all devices||The app is installed on devices in the selected groups|
|Available for enrolled devices||Add group, Add all users||Users install the app from the Company Portal|
|Uninstall||Add group, Add all users, Add all devices||The app is uninstalled from devices in the selected groups|
I want to make the app available for all users, so I selected All users under Available for enrolled devices. You can also add users or device groups.
Click Edit assignment, and then change the end user notifications if you want to display all toast notifications or only restart notifications.
The restart grace period and the installation deadline can also be set. Choose Filter mode if you want to include or exclude certain devices or users in this assignment. Click Next to proceed.
On the Review + Create page, review the settings you have configured, and then click Create to add the application to Intune.
The UWP type app of the Microsoft Store will be automatically updated. As you see in the screenshot below, the application has been created and is displayed under All apps in Intune.
The app is installed on the device. You can monitor the installation status under Device install status. If you target the application to users, the installation status will appear under User install status.
Intune will take control of Microsoft Store Win32 applications installed manually without Intune or Microsoft Store for Business. At the moment, Win32 apps in the Microsoft Store are in preview, and not all Win32 apps are available or searchable; types include EXE and MSI installers. There are some Group Policy restrictions that will prevent the deployment of Microsoft apps from the Microsoft Store.

Currently, Microsoft Store apps cannot be displayed on the enrollment status page because they will be installed after the enrollment page is completed. Device provisioning of UWP apps & ARM64 type installers is not supported via the Microsoft Store. Microsoft is planning to include this support in a future release.
