2.1.21.13 - 2024-04-03

Features

Improvements

  • PowerShell detection scripts no longer call whoami. This resolves issues where the PATH environment variable may have conflicting whoami processes.

    • The ‘recreate detection‘ right-click option can be used to generate new scripts with this change. Otherwise, products will have the script updated when a new version is released.

  • Product selections are stored and matched based on a product Id

  • A message box will appear when a ‘latest‘ product is selected. This message box contains a brief note about how products with multiple versions are handled and provides a help button for more info.

  • The configured proxy will be used to get an access token during cloud connection creation.

  • Disconnecting from the cloud tab did not save to settings.

2.1.21.2 - 2024-03-20

2.1.20.2 - 2024-02-27

Fixes

  • Cloud features were not using the configured proxy. The proxy configured in the Publisher will now be used.

2.1.19.33 - 2024-02-15

Improvements

  • Use less memory when uploading .intunewin files to Intune.

  • Improve the user experience when the ConfigApi is not available

    • The UI can now start without the ConfigApi being available. A popup message will still appear indicating it cannot be reached.

    • When this is not available, the cloud features of the Publisher will be disabled.

Fixes

  • Fixed a bug that caused some right-click options to not clear their state as expected for custom apps.

  • Editing Manage Conflicting Process options did not light up the Apply button.

2.1.18.55 - 2023-12-22

Improvements

  • Implement an attempted reconnect when a WMI query fails against the SMS provider.

  • Improved scriptrunner logic for finding uninstall strings. DisplayVersion will now have any "-" or "_" replaced by a "." when searching for uninstall strings. This matches the behavior of our script based detection.

Fixes

  • Fixed a bug that caused a Null Reference Exception when exiting the Manage Conflicting Processes configuration in the Intune apps or Intune updates tab.

  • Fixed a bug that caused the custom naming convention for ConfigMgr applications to be overwritten during a sync in some cases.

  • Fixed a bug where the authorization token can expire when connecting to Custom Apps, requiring a service restart.

  • Fixed a bug where Right-Click selections for "All Products" on the "Intune Apps" tab would be lost when custom apps was enabled.

2.1.18.48 - 2023-12-08

Features

  • Ability to create Custom App updates and base installs

    • The feature is in public preview.

    • Custom Applications are supported in the ConfigMgr apps, Intune apps, and Intune updates tabs.

    • The Publisher must have ‘Install preview builds‘ checked in the About tab.

    • A license with one of the below subscription levels is required.

      • Enterprise Plus

      • Enterprise Premium

      • MSP

Improvements

  • Update the default login authority for Intune. It is now https://login.microsoftonline.com

    • This will not affect existing Intune configurations. It is only a change to the defaults for a new connection.

Fixes

  • Fix logging during the creation of Intune products when local content lookup fails. The Publisher would incorrectly log that the existing application would be deleted.

  • Fixed a bug causing Enforced Uninstall Arguments to be ignored for ConfigMgr apps. This resulted in some ConfigMgr apps being created with an uninstall that may not work as expected. The next sync after the Publisher is updated will fix these products’ uninstall configuration.

  • The connection name is now required in the Cloud tab.

2.1.18.42 - 2023-12-05

Features

  • Add support for configuring Win32 application max runtime in minutes

Intune options with the new option to configure maximum install runtime highlighted.

Improvements

  • *** Report lines have been updated.

    • As the catalog grows and the number of syncing products increases, our *** report line has gotten too long! CMTrace does not parse the line, and it will not show it. To prevent this, we have split up the report line into one line per type. Below is an example.

  • Implement certificate pinning. All requests to Patch My PC domains will have the certificate validated.

  • Implement a safety check prior to deleting a ConfigMgr application. In some instances, the SMS provider returns an empty list of apps instead of a connection exception. To account for this we ensure at least one Site is returned by the SMS provider prior to application deletion.

  • ConfigMgr script size is reduced. No functional changes. This should help with metadata download issues over CMG.

  • Add support for the ? wildcard character in detection.

Fixes

  • Fixed a bug that caused a new install of Patch My PC Publisher to be in ‘Intune Only Mode’ regardless of the checkbox state.

  • Servers are no longer included in Intune device counts.

  • Resolved a race condition which caused the additional webhook filtering options to be unavailable in some instances.

  • Improved download engine logging to include the URL when the download fails. This was a regression that is now resolved.

  • The logging path for Intune Manage Installation Logging incorrectly defaulted to the ConfigMgr path. It is now corrected to the Intune default path for logging.

  • For some sync schedules, the ‘Next Sync’ time displayed in the General tab was in UTC instead of local time. The correct time should now be displayed.

Features

  • Support detecting software that translates DisplayName

  • Implement Publish Now for Custom Apps

Improvements

  • Improve some popup notifications to direct the user to the correct tab.

2.1.17.27 - 2023-09-29

Improvements

  • OK button has been changed to ‘Save and Close’

    • Open to feedback on this change. We have received a fair number of reports that it is unclear the ‘OK’ button will close the UI.

Fixes

  • Fixed a bug that caused the right-click menu at the root to sometimes not display correctly.

  • Fixed a bug with ‘Selective Sync’ where Intune Apps and Intune Updates were swapped

    • This would not cause the wrong thing to be published, but it might cause something to not be published at all during a selective sync.

2.1.16.54 - 2023-08-29

Features

Improvements

  • Implement a new download engine across all components.

  • Detection method improvements.

    • Support parsing version numbers that use – or _ instead of .

  • WMI connection test to SMS provider prior to deleting ConfigMgr content.

Fixes

  • On the ConfigMgr Apps tab, if the option «Add the executable name in the deployment type’s install behavior» is enabled, the Manage Conflicting Process is automatically enabled to kill processes.

  • Fix crash when sorting some columns in the Manage Assignments tool.

  • Fixed a bug that would cause a republished Intune product to have the content for the latest version, and the metadata for version n-1.

    • This would occur if the republish flag is set, and there is new version of the application in the catalog.

Improvements

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed a bug where the sorting of products in the email report was in reverse alphabetical order.

2.1.14.11 - 2023-05-17

Improvements

  • Updated some graph calls to use a smaller page size. This reduces the chance of receiving a 429 or 503 response from graph.

2.1.12.22 - 2023-01-31

Features

  • Email and Webhook notifications now include information about delayed ConfigMgr applications during each sync.

Improvements

  • Email and Webhook notifications are now sent when a delayed ConfigMgr application fails to download. Previously a notification would only happen if the Publishing failed after the delay.

Fixes
