Allow multiple copies of app for different configurations

Allow creating multiple copies of an application so that you can have different configurations of the application.


For example, if an application is licensed with a post-script, but different departments have a separate license for the app, it would be useful to be able to have two different configurations for the app that can then be deployed to different collections in SCCM.


It would also be nice to be able to set the security scopes of each configuration to potentially prevent different groups from being able to see or accidentally deploy each other's licenses.

    A good use case for this would be when you're deploying Zoom, you'd want to deploy the MSI version with all the flags for automatically logging in via SSO for users with licenses, but for unlicensed users who just need it for joining outside meetings you could deploy a package without all the auto-login flags.

    +3 We're in a shared tenant with multiple agencies. This feature would allow us to control our own application assignments and provide us with automation. I would appreciate the option to add a Prefix in the package names to easily identify which applications belong to each group. Thanks!

    Just a question would this be possible to achieve by having multiple deployment types.

    I'm really looking forward to this. Rolling out an application, which is maintained by PMP, with different parameters would be very useful. And sometimes also for testing purposes.

    Looking forward for this one. Much needed in our company also.
    It would aleviate the ned for pre-scripts with different settings.

    Looking forward to this feature as it would be beneficial to have different conflicting process settings for different deployments.

    I use PMPC to update my SCCM apps and some apps have available + required deployments. I don't want to interrupt presentations for the users having the app as required, so if Focus Assist is on, the prompt for conflicting process is suppressed. That makes things challenging for the users who have app as available. If they try to install when Focus Assist is on (Teams call, etc), installation fails due to the same Focus Assist setting.

    This would be extremely useful for licensed applications and for apps with different configuration in general for different groups.

    It is very taxing to have to redo these configurations to allow for 'Automation' of third party patching from servers vs workstations. It's not really automation if you have to redo every setting each time.

    Is it possible/permissible to run a second copy of the application using the same license but on a different device in the organization so that a different set of updates and schedules could be run? For example, target a more frequent update of Chrome only on the secondary instance.

    I'm out of updoots, but this would be great for exactly the reason you specified: departments have separate license keys for the same apps.

    This is necessary for when I have multiple licenses for the same product.

    This would be useful as sometimes we want an app to be required, but also available in case there are any issue with it installing as a required app (connectivity, Intune glitches)

    This should be another Right-click option in the publisher settings..

    "duplicate" .. which then asks you to select a "scope" and/or "tag" that is added to the new object name. (verifying that it is unique)

    "scope" should also be assigned to the new object (in addition to Default scope).

    scope should also be used to restrict/allow an admin from editing the properties of these application installs. (from the publisher tool)... or move these option directly into the sccm interface with a custom UI integration.

Deploying Applications multiple times

we have a problem in Intune that we need applications in Azure Virtual Desktop and on clients. AVD unfortunately can only do client controlled deployment. Now I need to assign the application to my AVD clients group. If I deploy the application to...
