I have a customer who is unable to remove applications in Intune that were added when synced with Windows Store for Business.

 

The apps have been removed from the store and the customer has re-synced but that app never gets removed from the Intune portal.

 

 Any ideas?

Thanks

We experience this as well on multiple tenants, but don't have solution either.

Hi,

This is by design right now as far as I know, the same goes for applications synced from Google Play. There is a user-voice item here as well which you are welcome to vote up.

Thanks for the link.  Ive added some votes!  I can't believe this is by design.  It seems to me that its more of an oversight, surely if your syncing from the WSFB and you have refunded and removed the apps, this should reflect in the Intune Portal when you sync.

By Design maybe was a bad phrasing, it is not possible yet at least.. but lets hope it will be because it is annoying..
