Add Android Enterprise system apps to Microsoft Intune

Before you assign an app to a device or a group of users, you must first add the app to Microsoft Intune. System apps are supported on Android Enterprise devices. You can enable a system app for Android Enterprise dedicated devices, fully managed devices, or Android Enterprise corporate-owned with work profile.

Add the app

You can add an Android Enterprise system app to Intune from the Azure portal by doing the following:

  1. Sign in to the Microsoft Endpoint Manager admin center.
  2. Select Apps > All apps > Add.
  3. In the Select app type pane, under the available Other types, select Android Enterprise system app.
  4. Click Select. The Add app steps are displayed. In the App information page, add the app details:
    • App Name: Enter the name of the app.
    • Publisher: Enter the name of the publisher of the app.
    • Package Name: Enter a package name. Intune will validate that the package name is valid.
  5. Click Next to display the Scope tags page.
  6. Click Select scope tags to optionally add scope tags for the app. For more information, see Use role-based access control (RBAC) and scope tags for distributed IT.
  7. Click Next to display the Assignments page.
  8. Select the group assignments for the app. For more information, see Add groups to organize users and devices.
  9. Click Next to display the Review + create page. Review the values and settings you entered for the app.
  10. When you are done, click Create to add the app to Intune.

The Overview blade of the app you've created is displayed.

Note

You will need to work with the OEM of your device to find the package name of the app you would like to enable/disable.

The app you've created is displayed in the apps list, where you can assign it to the groups that you select.

Android Enterprise system apps will enable or disable apps that are already part of the platform. To enable an app, assign the system app as Required. To disable an app, assign the system app as Uninstall. System apps cannot be assigned as available for a user.
