Having logged a call with support i've been informed its impossible to deploy an icon allong with the config to deploy a pwa?

Using the following policy
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/deployedge/microsoft-edge-policies#configure-list-of-force-installe...

I wanted to control the icon delivered on the desktop when installed after using the "create_desktop_shortcut": true, "default_launch_container": "window" } configuration.

Im struggling to understand why you couldn't pull down an .ico or image such as a png to act as its icon.

Am I supposed to wait until the new microsoft app store is available and use pwabuilder.com?

@NickBeauchamp Hi!  I've just reached out to the team and it looks like adding a custom icon using the WebAppInstallForceList policy is a feature request that is on their radar.  Unfortunately, there is no ETA right now, but appreciate the feedback.  

 

Thanks!
