Deploying an Enterprise app using Intune RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm confused by the deployment process for Windows 8.1 phone apps.

    I am developing an app on behalf of a client. The app uses WNS notifications.

    For dev/test we've been distributing the app as a beta via the Store. That is working fine.

    However, for production the client wants to use Intune to manage their devices and apps. They have purchased a certificate for signing the apps but we can't get deployment to work and the various documents I've read are not at all clear on the process. I have a few questions:

    Can an app that uses WNS be deployed via Intune or must it go via the Store?

    Should the appx be signed by me on my dev environment, using the clients signing cert, or should I package the appx unsigned and give it to the client to sign it via Intune?

    When I create the appx locally, unsigned, I am assigning the PublisherID as per the signing cert but this is still throwing a mismatched publisher ID error when they try to sign the app via Intune. What is the correct procedure?
