Install KeePassXC with Intune Enterprise App Catalog App Step-by-Step Guide

The following discourse aims to provide insight into the process of Install KeePassXC app using the Enterprise Application Catalog applications through Intune. This discussion will serve as a good guide for individuals seeking to gain a thorough understanding of application deployment in an enterprise setting.

KeePass is a password manager that is both free and open-source.  It helps you manage your passwords securely by storing them all in one database, which is protected by a master key. The aforementioned key serves as the sole prerequisite for unlocking the entire database, thereby alleviating the need for multiple passwords. Overall, this feature provides a streamlined and secure password management experience.

The KeePass database files are fully encrypted, meaning that not only your passwords but also your usernames, URLs, notes, and other information are secure. The best encryption algorithms, including AES, ChaCha20, and Twofish, are used to guarantee the safety of database files.

The KeePass Password Safe Manager is designed primarily for the Windows operating system. However, KeePassXC was developed to address other OS other than the Windows. Also, the key difference is that KeePass is written in .NET, and KeePassXC is written in C++.

What are the Benefits of Enterprise App Management

There are numerous benefits to utilizing Enterprise App Management. Let’s learn about those benefits. A big shout out to Microsoft for creating beautiful documents and making our lives easy.

When you add any Enterprise App Catalog application, Intune itself auto-fills many details. For example, The Commands to install and uninstall the app, the Name of the application, the App Version, the number of minutes the system will wait for the installation of the program to finish, the detection rule, etc. Microsoft recommends using the pre-populated fields containing specific commands and rules. But you can modify the pre-populated fields if you want.

You can request to add an application to the Enterprise App Catalog. If you aren’t already working with a Microsoft contact, fill out the form to request to add an application to the Enterprise App Catalog. Also, Microsoft hosts the applications in Microsoft storage.

Note!  Microsoft makes no guarantee, express or implied, with respect to adding a requested app to the Enterprise App Catalog. Once the submission is reviewed using the form provided above, the app may or may not be added to the Enterprise App Catalog. Microsoft does not offer or assume any Service Level Agreement (SLA) or timeline with regard to adding an app to the Enterprise App Catalog.

  1. I installed KeepassXC about one week ago with intunte and app catalog. Now the users become a message that a new version of KP is available. It’s very annoying and MS did again a half job. How can we update Keepass now? I guessed it’s autoupdate out of the box for such mainstream apps? I also see no inventory in intune where I can trigger a new version of KC like supersedence.

    And in the app catalog are far too less apps. Why MS not cooporate with PatchmyPC or IntunePkr – they know the business of apps. Unfortunaltey an disappointment more with MS.

    Cheers.
