The Microsoft Endpoint Manager extension provides the distribution service to publish apps to the Microsoft Endpoint Manager admin center. The Microsoft Endpoint Manager admin center is where you manage the Intune service and deploy apps to users. Enabling this extension gives you access to the Microsoft Endpoint Manager step in the Testing and Production stages of your workflows.

Click Add to enable the extension, and then click the gear icon to configure. Configuration is necessary for automatic push, but not manual download.

Prerequisites

You need a Microsoft Endpoint Manager account with a URL and login credentials. You also need to have or create an app registration for the Blue Cedar Platform in the Microsoft Azure AD admin center. Registering the Blue Cedar Platform as an "app" in Azure AD allows the platform to be able to authenticate to your tenant on the Endpoint Manager in order to upload the Intune-enabled apps. Follow the steps in Automatically deploying Intune-enabled apps to configure the ability to use automatic push in a Microsoft Endpoint Manager distribution step.


Enable the extension

Before users can add Microsoft Endpoint Manager distribution to workflows, you must enable the corresponding extension. From the Blue Cedar Platform main menu, select Extension > Distribution. On the Microsoft Endpoint Manager card, click Add Extension, and then proceed with configuring as described below.

Configure the extension

You only need to configure the extension when you plan to use workflows to automatically push apps to the Microsoft admin center. A configuration requires information from the Azure AD app registration for the Platform, as described in Automatically deploying Intune-enabled apps. Create a configuration with these details when you enable the extension. 

On the Microsoft Endpoint Manager extension card, click the gear icon. Click Add Config and enter the values.
