How to Add an App Lob to Microsoft Intune

Select the app type




Sign in to the Microsoft Intune admin center. Select Apps > All apps > Add. In the Select app type pane, under the Other app types, select Line-of-business app. Click Select.

The app details will be displayed. When you're finished, select OK on the App package file pane to add the app.
