Updated 6/29/21: We are actively testing and baking a solution to improve the accuracy and timeliness of discovered apps. Though we don’t have any dates to currently share, stay tuned to this post and our In development docs for future updates.
Intune provides a host of application management features, such as app availability, App Protection Policies, and app inventory, among others. The Intune discovered apps pane displays a list of detected apps on your Intune managed devices. To learn more about discovered apps in Intune, see Intune discovered apps.
We were recently alerted to an issue whereby not all versions of applications are being reported, inconsistencies of information between Discovered apps report and Discovered apps per devices, and Discovered apps reported under devices blade differs from the actual device. Upon investigation, we discovered an issue with our data aggregation service not collecting all application information. In addition, since the data collection occurs every 7 days, feedback from admins was that they wanted to see applications from newly added devices or updated application versions.
Steps to reproduce:
Note: The pane will update # Device after 7 days
Another way to verify:
Please note that Android Enterprise Fully Managed and Dedicated devices do not report discovered apps so unfortunately, Intune cannot discover apps on these device types.
Intune has been working on a solution to improve the accuracy and timeliness of discovered apps. We are currently architecting a new data pipeline that will create a more efficient data flow and expect to complete the work by early next calendar year. This work will directly result in the following:
