Another month, another round of feature updates for Intune. This month’s updates include news on enhanced Cordova and Xamarin support for MAM without enrollment. If you need a refresher on what’s currently available for MAM without MDM, take a look at the table here.
Over the last few months we’ve seen new tenants moving from traditional Intune groups over to AAD groups, a huge improvement, but one that also requires some planning for those who have been using Intune since before this change. This has an impact on Android for Work, with new or migrated tenants, providing support for the Available option for apps. If you are on a non-migrated tenants, you will have to rely on Required for now.
The last few updates related to the Windows Phone 8 Company Portal, take a look at the text below from the update page for more information.
While you can deploy Android for Work apps with an action of Required, you can only deploy apps as Available if your Intune groups have been migrated to the new Azure AD groups experience.+
App developers can now use the Intune App SDK for Cordova plugin to enable MAM functionality without device enrollment in their Cordova-based apps for Android and iOS. The Intune App SDK for Cordova plugin can be found here.+
App developers can now use the Intune App SDK Xamarin component to enable MAM functionality without device enrollment in their Xamarin-based apps for Android and iOS. The Intune App SDK Xamarin component can be found here.+
