By integrating Windows Store for Business to SCCM, organizations can synchronize the list of apps with SCCM, view these in the SCCM administration console, and deploy them like any other app. To get started with Windows Store for Business, you will need to be a Global Administrator in Azure Active Directory.
The Microsoft Store for Business supports two types of app:
- Online: This license type requires users and devices to connect to the store to get an app and its license. Windows 10 devices must be Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) domain-joined.
ffline: This type lets you cache apps and licenses to deploy directly within your on-premises network. Devices don’t need to connect to the store or have a connection to the internet.
Register SCCM as web application in Azure AD
In the left-hand navigation pane, select the Azure Active Directory service.
Select App registrations and then select New application registration.
Select Native for client applications that are installed locally on a device.
This setting is used for OAuth public native clients.
When finished, select Create.
You are taken to the application’s main registration page, which contains the Settings page for the application.
