About No-Code Implementation of the Microsoft Intune App SDK into Mobile Apps

Appdome for Microsoft Intune SDK Integration is one of the premier solutions available on Appdome. Using Appdome to Build the Microsoft Intune SDK into mobile apps is simple and fast. Once Build is complete, you can deploy the Fused App directly to Intune and install the Built App on mobile devices via Intune. All data created within the App will be encrypted and protected inside a container, preventing other applications from accessing the app’s data. This allows you to enjoy all the features the Microsoft Intune SDK offers as well as the additional security of Appdome Mobility Suite and BoostEMMTM by Appdome.

Appdome is a mobile integration platform as a service (iPaaS) that allows users to add a wide variety of features, SDKs, and APIs to Android and iOS apps. Using a simple ‘click to add’ user interface, Appdome allows anyone to easily implement the Microsoft Intune App SDK into mobile Apps – instantly, no code or coding required.

Using Appdome, there are no development or coding prerequisites. For example, there is no Appdome SDK, libraries, or plug-ins to implement. The iOS (.ipa) or Android (.apk or .aab) App can be built in any development environment such as xCode for iOS and Android Studio, or non-native environments like Xamarin, Cordova, and React Native. Likewise, there is no requirement to pre-build any part of the Microsoft Intune functionality, use the Microsoft wrapper, or implement Microsoft Intune SDK capabilities into Android or iOS apps prior to using Appdome. Appdome’s technology adds the full Microsoft Intune SDK, as well as standards, methods or protocols necessary, to mobile apps automatically. After using Appdome, mobile apps will leverage the Microsoft Intune SDK capabilities as if they were natively coded into the app.

Prerequisites for using Appdome to add the Microsoft Intune App SDK into Mobile Apps

In order to use Appdome’s no-code implementation of the Microsoft Intune App SDK into mobile apps. you’ll need:

  • Appdome account – IDEAL or Higher
  • Mobile App (.ipa for iOS, or .apk or .aab for Android)
  • You have a configured and accessible instance of Microsoft Intune (to deploy your app).

How to Add the Microsoft Intune App SDK into Mobile Apps on Appdome

To Build your App with the Microsoft Intune SDK, follow these simple steps.  Note, the same workflow can be used for either an Android or iOS app.

Click Management under the Build tab. Note: a blue highlight will appear showing the category is active.

Then, find EMM Services under the Enterprise Mobility Management heading.

  1. Enable EMM Services and open the drop-down list.
  2. Next, choose the Microsoft Intune SDK from the dropdown list.
  3. Click “Build My App.”

Configure your App with additional features (optional).

If you’d like or need additional control over the Microsoft Intune SDK implementation or need to configure the implementation in your app, please take a look at the following knowledge base articles:

  • Appdome Mobility Suite – provides detailed, gradual control over the Microsoft Intune SDK implementation.
  • Intune BoostEMMTM – allows developers and mobility professionals to connect the App to Microsoft browsers, email clients, etc.
  • Intune MicroVPN – provides secure, mobile enterprise connectivity for any mobile App (connecting to enterprise SSL, VPN, and Proxies).

Each of these features should be added to your selections before you click Build My App. That way, sections in these categories are included in the automated integration completed on Appdome.

The technology behind Build My App has two major elements – (1) a microservice architecture filled with 1000s of code sets needed for mobile integrations, and (2) an adaptive code generation engine that can recognize the development environment, frameworks and methods in each App and match the App to the relevant code-sets needed to add the Microsoft Intune SDK to the mobile App in seconds.

Congratulations! When your implementation is complete, you’ll see the notice below. You now have a mobile App fully integrated with Intune SDK!

Add Context™ to the Appdome Built App

Appdome is a full-featured mobile integration platform. Within Context™, Appdome users can brand the app, including adding a favicon to denote the new service added to the app.
