Join Brien Posey for an in-depth discussion in this video Make an app available to users, part of Windows 10: Deploy and Manage Virtual Applications.
- Providing users with access to an application that has been made available through intune is usually a simple process. So right now, I'm logged into the intune classic portal, and I'm going to start the process by going to groups because usually, what you want to do is create a group that corresponds to the application that you're making available. So here I am in the groups container, and I am going to scroll to the right, and click on the create group link. Now I have to enter a name for the group.
The application that I'm going to be making available to my users is called FTP Voyager, so that's what I'm going to call the group. The next thing that I have to do is specify a parent group. In this case, my options for a parent group include all users or all devices. I'm going to go with all users and I'm going to click next. So the next screen allows you to define some membership criteria. Our first option includes what we want to include in the group initially.
We can start with an empty group, or we can start by populating the group with all of users from the parent group. You can use whichever option is easier for you. I'm going to go with all users in the parent group. The next thing that you can do is to exclude members from the group based on their security group membership or based on their managers. I'm not going to worry about this right now, I'm going to click next. And the next thing that we can do is control direct membership into the group.
We can include specific members if we want. So maybe we want to get rid of certain members so that they won't have access to this application. And the way that we would do that is by clicking browse, and then choosing the member that we want to remove from the group, and I'll click add, and that will move that user to the selected exclude members list, and click okay. And so now, user seven is excluded from the group. I'll click next, and now we see a summary of the group, everything looks good here so we'll click finish to create the group.
And you can see that the group has been created. If I click on users, we can see that users six, eight, and nine are members of this group. So now that we've created a group, lets give that group access to the application. So what I'm going to do now is go to apps and I'm going to click on apps, and then here's the FTP Voyager application. I'm going to right click on that, and I'm going to click on manage deployment.
So now we have to specify which group is going to have access to the application. So here we have all users, that's our parent group, and then we have ungrouped users, and then we have the group that we just created beneath our parent group FTP Voyager. So I'm going to select that and click add, and then click next. Now I'm taken to the deployment action screen. So we're granting access to the FTP Voyager group members, and then we have deployment.
If I click on this dropdown, we can make this a required install, we can make it not applicable, we can make it available to install, or we can uninstall the application. I'm going to make this available to install. And we can also set a deadline for the application. I'm not going to set a deadline for this particular application. So I'm going to click finish. And so now FTP Voyager has been made available for installation to the members of the group.
