Microsoft Edge Dev is ready to test for Mac users as well as Windows. This has been my preferred browser for most of my work for many months now. The availability for a Enterprise ready deployment also means that we can start testing the deployment of Microsoft Edge Dev with Intune.
It is not new that Intune can deploy LOB apps for Mac, so in this blog post I will use a well proven way of deploying apps to a corporate managed Mac. The way we do LOB app deployment on Mac is the same way as we do Win32 app deployment for Windows, we need a wrapper for the installation packages.

The new Microsoft Edge is still in preview, but it is a great and secure user experience cross platforms no matter if your end user is on Windows, IOS, Android or Mac. Not all features is available yet – but make sure that you are following the What’s next site for Microsoft Edge Insider.

In this blog post I will show how to get the Enterprise installer of Edge for Mac and how to packages it for deployment with Intune. I will not show how the Egde Dev browser is working.

Download the Intune App Wrapping Tool for Mac from Github

When you have downloaded IntuneAppUtil for Mac you need to start the bash prompt.
By default you are not allowed to execute a file on MacOS, so you need to make IntuneAppUtil executable by running the command chmod +x IntuneAppUtil


After the IntuneAppUtil is executable you can run it with the needed parameters.

-c <source_file>

-v verbose

IntuneAppUtil  -c ./MicrosoftEdgeDevMac/MicrosoftEdgeDev- -o ./MSedgeIntune/ -v


Do to the verbose parameter you will get a lot of information in the bash command prompt,
