– Now supporting App deployment

An exciting new addition to the website, I have added the ability to deploy applications via the GUI.

The app deployment at present uses the Winget community repository (when Advanced App Management is released by Microsoft, I will try and add that as an alternative)

After clicking on the Deploy Apps menu, you will find a drop-down where you can select your app (it has a free text search at the top)

Then simply select the tenant you want to deploy to and optionally you can specify group names. If you specify a group, it will check if the group exists. If it finds a group, it will assign. If it doesn’t, the group will be created

In the background, this triggers a new runbook which kicks off an updated copy of my app deployment script

It will:

  • Create AzureAD Install and Uninstall Groups (or use existing)
  • Install and Uninstall PowerShell scripts
  • Custom Detection Script
  • Proactive Remediation (to update the app daily)
  • The intunewin file itself
  • Upload the Intunewin file to Intune
  • Assign Install and Uninstall groups to it
  • Assign the Proactive Remediation to the install group

Other updates are in the pipeline as well and requests and suggestions are always welcome!

  1. Hi Andrew,

    I having issues with uploading applications. I have tried two tenants and both have had issues installing applications. The Application that I have tried is “Signal” on both Tenants.
