We are excited to announce the general availability of App Broker / App Portal 2021 R1 release.
App Broker / App Portal 2021 R1 includes the following features and improvements:
Ability to use an existing collection to create Catalogs
IT administrators would prefer to use the existing collections from ConfigMgr to create the Catalogs to avoid maintaining multiple collections. Using this capability, you will be able to select the existing collections from ConfigMgr to create Catalogs in App Broker / App Portal. This feature will also help improve time to deploy the application to the target devices thus achieving better performance.
When this capability is enabled, App Broker / App Portal will use the "Approve application requests for user per device" capability in ConfigMgr in the background. This feature will deploy the application immediately for a given user and device. If the user has multiple devices associated with them, they can request the application for each device separately.
Ability to classify Catalog items
App Portal now provides Catalog Classification to provide flexibility for the Administrator to optionally categorize a catalog item as either a preferred or non-preferred product. On the browse catalog page, users can then differentiate between preferred and non-preferred catalog items. When they attempt to checkout a non-preferred catalog item, it will be recommended that they choose from a list of preferred catalog items attached to the catalog by the administrator.
Support for ServiceNow Paris version
This release of App Broker / App Portal includes the support for the newer Paris version of ServiceNow.
