We recently discovered an issue within the Troubleshooting + support blade where the Devices table > column App install lifecycle might not be showing an accurate status. We’ve received customer feedback where the column is showing “Failure” but upon investigation the apps are not failing to deploy and there are no issues with the apps on devices.
Additionally, if you select the impacted device, load the “Managed Apps” view, select one of the apps targeted to the device and click the app, the app install history may show the status as “Failed to install”, however the app is present on the device.
Both these issues are related to each other because the App install lifecycle is computed from the app install history. The issue appears at random so you may not be impacted, keep on reading to learn more.
The correct status will be displayed in the Status column
Device install status blade in the MEM admin center
If the App install lifecycle column in the Troubleshooting blade shows a different status than the Device Install status, you have run into this problem. To workaround this issue, our recommendation is to use the Device Install status for understanding the correct install status of the app for the affected device.
