Using MST's with Scappman Apps

This guide will show you how to deploy an MST file with a Scappman app

To use an MST file with a Scappman app you wlil first need to deploy it as a custom application.

In the below example, we'll use Adobe Reader.

Ensure you have your MST and an Icon for the custom app ready

Browse to the App Store and select New App

Populate the General Information tab of the new app

This information is for your own records and is what will be shown in the App Store once the new app is created.

Populate the Configuration tab of the new app

A version number is required; but an arbitrary value is OK to use.

Select your MST file

Populate the Install command

The install command displayed below will work as is; The only thing you may want to change is the Destination; "C:\Temp\" is an example.

Installation commands use PSADT PowerShell - See the cheat sheet here

Configure your detection rule

For this, you want file-based detection, as shown below. Be sure to update the Path and File name to reflect what you configured in the File and Installation command steps.

Deploy your MST to Intune

You can now deploy your MST to Intune as an application, following the same steps you usually would for any other app.

Add your MST as a dependency of your primary app

Once the MST app has finished deploying to Intune, you will be able to add it as a dependency as shown below. This will ensure that the MST is deployed first to your devices before Adobe Reader is installed.

Modify your command line to reference the MST

Select Configure for the Install command.

Reference the MST file

You will want to reference the MST file here by using the local path configured in the Install command of your MST app.

The command line below is only valid for Adobe Reader. The transform command may vary across different applications. Refer to the vendor documentation for specific guidance

Once modified, Select Save and continue with the application deployment as normal

You will now want to set assignments for this newly created application, which you can read more about here.
