Deploying an App using Intune Apps

How to deploy an app using Patch My PC Intune Apps for Cloud

Intune Apps for Patch My PC (PMPC) Cloud can be used to deploy apps.


See Deploying the same App with multiple configurations for details on re-using a successfully deployed app for different configurations.

To deploy an app:

  1. Sign in to the portal at

  2. Locate the required application on the App Catalog page.


Use the Search field to help you locate the app.

  1. Click the app to open its properties.

  2. Click Deploy to start the Deployment Wizard.

  3. On the General Information page, configure the settings for how you want the application to be deployed, then click Next.

  4. On the Configurations page, configure the settings to add any required scripts or additional installation parameters, then click Next.

  5. On the Assignments page, click Add Assignment, then select the assignment type you want to add for this deployment:

  • Add Available – An optional application that will be available to install via the Company Portal for the primary user of the device.

  • Add Required – A mandatory application that will be installed automatically for all users or devices it is assigned to.

  • Add Update Only – An Intune Apps-only function that adds a mandatory update that will be installed for all users or devices it applies to.

  • Add Uninstall – A mandatory uninstall that will remove the application from any users or devices it is assigned to.

  1. On the assignment page, select the relevant options, then click Save.


Adding an Available assignment also prompts you to add an Update Only application. This ensures that any applications assigned as Available are updated automatically when installed via Microsoft’s Company Portal.

The Assignments page updates to show the newly created deployment.

  1. Configure the settings for this deployment as required.


We automatically configure these settings based on our experience and best practices, but you can modify certain settings if necessary.


You can click Deploy on this page if you don’t want to add additional assignments or see the Overview page, which allows you to double-check the settings you’ve configured for this deployment.

  1. Add any additional assignments for this deployment by clicking Add Assignment and repeating Steps 7 to 9, then click Next.

  2. Review the summary of the deployment shown on the Summary page. If you are happy click Deploy. If you need to change something, click < Prev to backtrack through the Deployment Wizard to the relevant setting. Make the change, then step back through the wizard to this page. If everything is now correct, click Deploy.

    The App Catalog is redisplayed along with the Success - <deployment_name> deployment created notification.


When a new version of software is released, it is automatically deployed using the settings of the existing deployment. The old version will be removed from the target user/device and replaced with the newer version.
