Set DefaultApps only once with MDM Intune CSP Policy
When setting default apps with the Policy CSP - ApplicationDefault, it's permanent.
If a user changes default PDF reader, it will be set for that session. If user gets logged out, or reboots the machine, the default from this CSP Policy will be applied again.
I want to be able to set default apps just once, and later let the users configure their devices as they please. Freedom of choice etc.
We really need this for our customers, the "old" GPO allowed user changes to the default app associations.
Any update on this please? I appreciate you can do this via DISM using ESP:
However, it would be good to deploy defaults apps which the user is to change at any point in time.

A suggested fix would be to be able to create policies that are only applied during enrolment / initial setup. I have tested and verified that removing (un assign) the policy on a enrolled device, does in fact let the user change default applications. Even after reboot, the defaults is not forced back to the device.
