I need to add Microsoft Lens as a Managed App in my Android and iOS App Protection Policies but it is not listed as a choice I can choose.

 

Can it be added - perhaps as a custom app?  If so, how would I do that?

 

Thanks in advance for any assistance - it is greatly appreciated!

Lens isn't an APP capable app (it's on the uservoice though).

Check out the link to add a custom app: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/intune/apps/app-protection-policies#app-protection-policies-for-ios...

@Thijs Lecomte Thank you so much for your prompt response.  I have not been working in Intune very long so please forgive me for this follow up question.

 

If Lens is not APP capable then it cannot be added as a custom app either?  Or can non-APP capable apps be added as custom apps?

 

Thanks so much for helping this newbie out!

You should be able to add it as an excempted app

@Thijs Lecomte Thanks - you're the best!!
