Dear forum members,

Our VPP token is configured to turn off the Auto-update in the Intune for managed Apps. So how do you push out an app update if there is one? In the Airwatch, you could just select the App and it will show you all the devices that have the managed app installed, with the app version for each device. If you want to update the App, just select the devices and click update the App. I don't seem to have the equivalent settings in Intune.

Thanks.

As far as I now, that's not possible.

Automatic app updates for Apple VPP apps will automatically update only apps deployed with Required install intent. For apps deployed with Available install intent, the automatic update generates a status message for the IT admin informing that a new version of the app is available. This status message is viewable by selecting the app, selecting Device Install Status, and checking the Status Details.

@JanBakker330  Thankfully, Microsoft has now identified this feature as in development.
