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.

    +3 - This would be extremely useful for managing multiple slightly different deployments of TeamViewer in our org!

    This would be a great feature to have in Intune for different Sonicwall NetExtender deployments.

    Would be great to have some traction on this one.

    +1 - it is needed for deploying multiple TeamViewer Host deployments with custom CMD line parameters for controlling which TeamViewer account and group the device will be assigned to, different install template configurations etc.

    Came here looking for this feature for Zoom, which someone mentioned below. We are changing our vanity url, and during the transition need both configurations available.

    I'm guessing I can just copy it and modify the params on the program, but it would be nice to have that ability in PMPC.

    I would like this feature in Intune as well. Need test the updated version of Citrix and GlobalProtect before I push it to all my clients. Sometimes I want to try different configurations, like SSO or other command line switches without impacting the production package.

    Very much needed for deploying Citrix Workspace with various configurations. Some departments use with SSO while others do not

    We have several sites where we need variation of the deployment type or application for different proxy settings for an application. Hoping that if this functionality was added it might assist with future applications like perhaps the Office Deployment Tool and having different XML configurations.

    I suggest .. on the publisher.. add a "custom configurations" this would save a multiple configurations into a single package.xml file.

    You would have multiple <Package> options.. the last would be the default choice..

    New choices would be added at the begining of the file.. with a <required> property that looks up a Collection or Device property value to test if it will be applicable.

    The publisher UI should allow these choices to be re-arranged.. but always put the default choice (no <requrement>) at the bottom of the list.

    At installation.. it would check each <Package> and use the first applicable choice.

    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.

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...
