We have the need for Intune to support managing AppConfig management of applications by vendors that rely on that for the management of their applications.
I currently have multiple vendors that only support this as a means to manage their application.
It is surprising that Microsoft doesn't currently support it when so many other big name MDM's do.

When will microsoft join, at the moment the app config is limited to say the best. All other EMM are on-board

That is to apply custom XML to applications. The ACE community with vendors like SalesForce are using this suite to have their applications managed across different MDM's. Based on the documentation from AppConfig and SalesForce, this suite can be used by AirWatch or MobileIron to create managed applications - similar to what you can do by wrapping the apps with the Intune SDK.
SalesForce is one of the vendors that doesn't support wrapping their application or providing an Intune wrapped version, like they used to with "Good for SalesForce1". By Microsoft supporting this configuration, vendors that use ACE could be deployed as Intune managed applications that work with other applications such as Outlook.

This is already available from the Intune admin console in Azure portal.
Go to Mobile apps - App configuration policies to add it. Ensure that your app is already uploaded in the first place.
