Workspace ONE UEM supports the offline and online licensing models in the Microsoft Store for Business. Deploy Store for Business applications to Windows 10+ devices that communicate with your Azure Active Directory services.

Offline and Online License Model Requirements

  • Windows 10+ Devices - Deploy to Windows 10+ devices because they are compatible with the bulk-acquirement and application deployment processes.

    Use the Windows Desktop or Windows Phone platforms when assigning applications.

    You can deploy applications acquired through the bulk purchase process to older devices, like Windows 8 devices. The devices receive applications from Workspace ONE UEM through the regular process, and the system does not manage these applications.

  • Azure Active Directory Services - Configure Azure Active Directory services in Workspace ONE UEM to enable the communication between the systems. This configuration enables Workspace ONE UEM to manage Windows devices and applications on these devices.

    You do not need an Azure AD Premium account to integrate with the Microsoft Store for Business. This integration is a separate process from the automatic MDM enrollment.

    Important: Integration only works when you configure it in the same organization group where you configured Azure Active Directory Services.
  • Microsoft Store for Business Admin Account with Global Permissions - Acquire applications with a Microsoft Store for Business admin account. Global permissions enable admins to access all systems to acquire, manage, and distribute applications.

Online License Model Requirements

File Storage Enabled for on-premises Workspace ONE UEM stores Microsoft Store for Business applications on a secure file storage system.

This requirement is part of the process to configure Azure AD Services.
