Now that you understand the reasons why you encounter error 0x87D13BA2 when deploying a macOS LOB app in Intune, let me show you the steps to resolve this.

Use the following steps to resolve this problem and enable the macOS LOB app to correctly report its status:

Step 1: On a macOS device that has the LOB app installed through Intune, open Terminal and run the following command to output a list of installed apps to the current directory:

sudo /usr/libexec/mdmclient QueryInstalledApps > InstalledApps.txt

After running the above command, open the InstalledApps.txt file in a text editor. You may also copy InstalledApps.txt to a different folder using the cp command and open the file with your favorite text editor.

Step 3: Compare the list of included apps in Intune with the apps listed in the InstalledApps.txt file, and remove any apps that are not showing in the text file.

Additionally, you must also compare the App bundle ID and App version in Intune with the information present in InstalledApps.txt. If you notice any differences, make sure you correct the information in the app information.

Here is an example of an invalid app ID that I was talking about. In the Intune admin center, the macOS LOB app information includes the app bundle ID with the value com.microsoft.MSTeamsAudioDevice whereas this entry is not at all present in the installedapps.txt.

In my case, I removed the invalid bundle ID’s and entered the correct app bundle and app version for the macOS LOB app.

  • App bundle ID (CFBundleIdentifier): com.microsoft.teams2
  • App version (CFBundleShortVersionString): 24046.2812.2722.8193

Note: You may add more than one bundle IDs for the macOS LOB app.

Step 4: After you have completed the above steps, review and save the application. Now sync the macOS device with Intune to retrieve the latest app installation status.

Refresh the Intune admin center, and now we see the macOS LOB app showing as ‘Installed.’
