Executive Summary

This release of AppM includes a number of features designed to increase the efficiency of importing and using data in AppM. AppM now also includes the ability to test IntuneWin package formats in Evergreen Testing, extending the range of formats currently available. Additionally, the MECM import process has been reworked to support the just-in-time feature and the import sync process.

Highlights

IntuneWin Evergreen Testing

AppM enables you to test your applications against new builds in an automated way. For example, you can launch a VM, run installation, uninstallations and user-defined testing if required. This is helpful when you’re updating to a new build and you want to test your apps in a completely automated environment. This release extends that functionality to IntuneWin, providing another key tool for AppM users who use Intune as the main deployment mechanism.

Just-in-time

Just-in-time allows you to import application data without directly importing and storing the source files. This feature speeds up the import process, and reduces the volume of imported data required on AppM.

Revert to Snapshot

The Revert to Snapshot action has been moved to the end of the testing process, so that testing is performed on a clean snapshot. This decreases the delay at the start of the testing process. This change applies to all hypervisors and virtual environments, and is particularly useful for Azure environments as Azure VMs can take a long time to revert snapshots.
