Microsoft Intune Feedback

How can we improve Microsoft Intune

inventory of -all- installed software not just the software deployed through Intune or from the Store

Today very limited reports exists for MDM, there is no report for software inventory on Mobile devices.

    Hopefully by now you’re seen our Data Warehouse feature that released recently. You can now get this data in console under Mobile Apps → Monitor → Discovered apps.There’s a table exposed in the data warehouse applicationInventories that exposes the same data.

    We also have a listing of all managed apps and their installation status under Mobile Apps → Monitor → App install status."

    Does that get you what you need? If not, what’s missing?

        @cathy-moya @75907170-cathy-moya @cathy moya, your comment on Sep 22 2017 does not address the issue nor do I think you're understanding what we are requesting. We want to see WIN32 programs (e.g. the list of installed programs that will show up under Program and Features in Windows 10) in addition to Modern/Windows Store apps in the Software Inventory. Your solution/response tells us how to see what apps were downloaded and installed via Intune.

        @Cathy Moya, in line with everyone else requesting reporting of _all_ programs installed that a user can see in Add/Remove Programs in Control Panel, my client too is stuck with the Classic Portal simply because Windows 10 devices just aren't capable of reporting this information via MDM Enrolment. This is the sole reason why they must deploy the Intune Software Client and can't yet fully move to the Azure portal.

        It is a royal pain in the backside having to manually export and collate software reports for Windows 10 devices from Intune Classic, and MacOS/iOS/Android apps from Azure/PowewrBI.

        The million-dollar question: When will we see full app reporting in Azure for Windows 10 devices also?

        @Cathy Moya: Thanks for the comment. The problem is that Intune only lists "managed modern apps". This does not reflect ALL applications / software installed on that device; it's actually missing most installed applications.

        Can we please have an update on this. This should be standard functionality.

      • Biljana commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Hi @Cathy Moya, do you have update on this issue? We are still not able to see all installed apps on Windows 10 devices managed with MDM.

        This is not available in Data warehouse as well.

      • Georg commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Agree with Floris and Oliver. Intune should be able to provide an entire list of installed applications on Windows 10 devices, otherwise the "discovered apps" list is pretty useless.

        Ironically, it seems like Intune is able to provide a complete list of installed apps for MacOS enrolled devices!

        The Intune Power BI Data Warehouse is nice but doesn't provide more details in terms of Widows 10 installed applications from what I can see.

        Would be great if Microsoft could let us know if this is being looked, etc.?

      • Floris commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        The functionality I am aiming for is an inventory of -all- installed software, not just the software deployed through Intune or from the Store. I think that is what most Intune users are looking for.

        How to get list of installed applications per mobile device using Microsoft Graph API?
        "displayName": "Shazam","
        "version": "7.6.1-170217",
        "deviceCount": 3
        is what I get using GET /detectedapps/ request. Is it possible?

      • AdminCathy Moya (UserVoice admin for Intune, Microsoft Intune) commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        @Urooj, if something is broken, I encourage you to open a support ticket. If there's a configuration issue, they can help you fix it. If it's a problem with the service, the support engineers can work with the product team to fix the service.

        To open a support request, go to, click Support in the left navigation, and then click Overview. Click Mobile Device Management and follow the steps. Support for Intune, and for Intune when used with Configuration Manager, is free of charge. Premier Support customers incur charges for procedure questions (for example, how to go about configuring an Intune feature).

        Intune Software inventory broken for us ,we can not generate true repost because inventory information is incorrect or not updated.

      • Floris commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Not being able to see and report on installed software is, in my opinion, a major shortcoming of MDM at the moment. A vendor told us that it's the most important reason for companies NOT to choose Intune.

      • Ajay Kadu commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Not able to pull meaningful consolidated report which should include UserID, Device details (OS,IMEI etc) in single report from config manager. Inbuilt reports are not very useful.

        how to pull report for software metering in Ms-intune? > if this can be added to the existing Detected report it will be fine.

      • Angela commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        It is definitely an important feature to be able to pull data on what users are installing on their company owned devices. Other MDM platforms can offer this functionality so if you are going to compete with them it really needs to be an option. It doesn't even really need to be a massively detailed report, as long as we can see what has been installed that would be something. InTune reporting features for InTune only managed mobile devices is poor at best.

      • Gerald Wiltse commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Agreed, my management is now requesting this, and will likely purchase a different MDM solution if Intune can't simply provide a basic report of installed apps.

        Can we get a ruling on this as "planned" or "rejected" or "Noted" or something?

      • Kellan commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        This has become something that has been requested to see if we ae getting false logins from an installed iOS app. We need a report run of all the apps installed on our devices.

      • Tamir Levy commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        you accept to enroll your device knowing your company can just wipe all of your personal data (including BYOD) but refuse to enroll of there's a software inventory. interesting...
        you know what? I agree. there are some features that make much more sense to have them only on corporate-owned devices, such as block un-enroll devices.
        today, unfortunately besides the enrollment account - I don't see any feature separation from a company owned device to BYOD.

      • jmarcum commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        This is another privacy issue. We should only be able to inventory apps on corp owned devices. It's none of my employers business what apps are installed on my BYOD device. I would refuse to enroll my device if location or software inventory were being shared with my employer.

      • Sam Rothschild commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Yes Please ..... Management wants reports on what apps are installed on our iOS devises..... our old MDM was able to give us detailed reporting.
