Allow iOS Apps to be deployed as "Available" when targeting a Device Group
It would be awesome if we could re-build our "library" of apps that users can install and also use device licensing so we don't have to use Apple ID's

Coming from another MDM where this is a standard feature has been painful in Intune. We have a scenario where some users have company owned iPads and BYOD phones. We want to make certain apps required on all company owned devices, but not on the BYOD devices. Pre-Intune we did this by targeting apps to device groups. Required apps got pushed out to company owned devices, but otherwise were available as optional installs for everyone else. It's also needed because we don't want to rely on Apple IDs for managing apps.

Contents In order to install your app to an iOS device for testing, you need to. ... Enterprise and University programs are also available. ... Each developer on your team could have their own certificate, enabling each .... In the Target drop-down list, select iOS Device, then select a device to directly install your application to it.
This is crucial for our environment to manage licensing, deployments to specific sites etc. When will this be made available? It is truly a missed opportunity by Microsoft for companies that are trying to move off of SCCM.

After a significant amount of time spent trying to figure out why apps were not displayed in the company portal despite the app being deployed as available, I discovered that apps cannot be deployed as "Available for enrolled devices" when the targeted group is a device group. This should not only be outlined more clearly during the app deployment process (i.e. grey out "device install" option when "Available for enrolled devices" is selected). More importantly, deployment of managed iOS apps to a device group as available for install should be made possible.
The Intune Company Portal associates the device with the user anyway so should that not allow for available installation to function either way?
Need this for Android as well.
