Endpoint Manager – How to deploy apps to machines by a specific manufacturer

Do you have apps that you would like to deploy to machines by a specific manufacturer?

eg. if you want to deploy Lenovo Vantage only to your lenovo devices,

here is the guide for you.


This is a 2 step task, first thing we have to do, is to make a dynamic group


Make a Dynamic Group for machines by a specific manufacturer

Go to Groups – Microsoft Azure Microsoft Azure – Azure Active Directory – Groups









Click on New Gorup

















Fill out;

Group Type: Security

Group Name: Intune_All_lenovo_Machines

Membership type: Dynamic Device

and then click on Add dynamic query










Click on Edit
























Fill out;

For Lenovo;

(device.deviceOSVersion -startsWith "10.0") -and (device.DeviceOSType -startsWith "Windows") -and (device.managementType -eq "MDM") -and (device.deviceManufacturer -contains "Lenovo")

For HP use instead;

(device.deviceOSVersion -startsWith "10.0") -and (device.DeviceOSType -startsWith "Windows") -and (device.managementType -eq "MDM") -and (device.deviceManufacturer -contains "HP")

And click OK












Click Save




























Click Create

Now we have our Dynamic Group Intune_All_lenovo_Machines, which contains only; Windows 10 machines that is enroelled in Intune, and is manufactured by Lenovo.









if we wait a little, some Lenovo devices should start showing up in the group;















if we check one of the devices in the group we can verify it’s a Lenovo machine;








Then you just have to assign the app to a group

You probably already know this part, if not here’s an example with Lenovo Vantage;


Go to Endpoint Manager -> Apps 












Click Add, choose Microsoft store app (lenovo Vantage are in the Microsoft Store), and hit Select




















Fill Out;

Name: Lenovo Vantage

Description: Whatever you like 🙂

Publisher: Lenovo Inc

Appstore URL: https://www.microsoft.com/en-eg/p/lenovo-vantage/9wzdncrfj4mv?activetab=pivot:overviewtab

and whatever else you like, and hit Next

Click Add gorup, search our new gorup Intune_All_Lenovo_Machines, hit select and then Next






















Click Create


I have chosen the app to be required for the group on this tennent and it is therefore quickly rolled out to the Lenovo devices
