App Configuration Policies for the Intune Managed Browser

The Managed Browser is a mobile app that you can download from the app stores to help protect corporate data when accessing internal and SaaS applications. In this post we will be discussing the configuration options that are available through Intune for the Managed Browser. We achieve this by adding properties and values to an App Configuration Policy targeted for the Managed Browser. Below are just a few samples — you can find updated information at https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/intune/app-configuration-managed-browser.

To configure these settings, log into the Azure Portal and open the Intune management blade

Select Mobile appsApp configuration policies

From the App configuration policies blade, click +Add

In the Add configuration policy blade, name your new policy (for example, Managed Browser Configuration)

For the Device enrollment type, select Managed apps

Click Associated app, from the Targeted apps blade check Managed Browser for both iOS and/or Android, and click Ok

Now back at the Add configuration policy blade, click Configuration settings

In the Configuration blade, we will be adding a few property names and values:

  • Set the homepage
    1. Name: com.microsoft.intune.mam.managedbrowser.homepage
    2. Value: Url to the website, for example http://fmtrout.com
  • Configure bookmarks
    1. Name: com.microsoft.intune.mam.managedbrowser.bookmarks
    2. Value: For a single website, use the pattern <Friendly Name | Url> – for example, Fmtrout Blog|http://fmtrout.com. To add multiple websites, separate them with || – for example Fmtrout Blog|http://fmtrout.com||Google|https://google.com
  • Add allowed URL rules
    1. Name: com.microsoft.intune.mam.managedbrowser.AllowListURLs
    2. Value: Use the pattern <URL>\|<URL>\|<URL> – for example, https://google.com\|https://*.fmtrout.com/*\
  • Add blocked URL rules
    1. Name: com.microsoft.intune.mam.managedbrowser.BlockListURLs
    2. Value: Use the pattern <URL>\|<URL>\|<URL> – for example, https://google.com\|https://*.fmtrout.com/*\

NOTE: For a detailed list of the format used for allowed and blocked URLs, visit the documentation found here

Once you are finished, you can click Ok and then Add.

Now the only thing left to do is to Assign the policy and you are finished.
