Intune Win32 App Deployment Deadline Ignored

Hi there,

Has anyone noticed that their deadline for a Win32 app that is set as required for a group incl. devices do not execute at the deadline time specified? On Friday 19th February 2021 I had set a deployment to occur today, 22/02, but instead it immediately starting executing the deployment a few minutes after the deployment assignments were saved.

I noticed in the intunemanagementextension.log that the line exists for not just this app, but for all apps we've deployed previously. Some, like Edge, do not allow for a deadline in the future, whilst others we have set a deadline for.

@OllieSaleh-2781 Thanks for posting in our Q&A.

For this issue, we appreciate your help to get the setting of App availability. Basically, there are two settings for the app installation time, App availability and App installation deadline.

I also find that when more than one assignment is made for the same user or device, the app installation deadline time is picked based on the earliest time possible. We can read the following article as a reference.
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/mem/intune/apps/apps-win32-app-management#set-win32-app-availability-and-notifications

If there is anything update, feel free to let us know.

Hi LuDai,

Does this apply when AppA's deadline is a past date and AppB, in this case, is a future date?

Thanks,
Ollie

@OllieSaleh-2781 I have done two tests in my lab.
Test1: I deploy a win32 app to a win 10 device today and set deadline is 2021/2/23(past date). When I restart the device, I find that the app is installed successfully. So when app's deadline is a past date, it will install a few minutes after the deployment.

Test2: I deploy a win32 app to a win 10 device and set deadline is 2021/2/24 1:00PM(future time). When I restart the device, the app is not installed. I also check the logs, I find that it shows the deadline time.

For the log you provided, "ASAP" means "as soon as possible" in deadline, so please check if the assignment in the same app has two device groups which both have this device.

For the assignment of different apps, they will not affect each other.

If there is anything unclear, feel free to let us know.

@LuDaiMSFT-0289

Thanks for getting back to me.

Three device groups had a past date deployment and the fourth device group had the future deployment. Devices in the fourth deployment group do not exist in either of the other three device groups.

I also tested this with device time zone, not UTC scheduling as you have described and shown above, but despite this I feel the log output where it states StartDeadlineEx(TimeFormat) is null is either the format is wrong, or there is genuinely an issue.
