Microsoft Store & SCCM


We currently block the Microsoft Store via GPO as we don't want to allow users to go off and download whatever they want.  However, we would like to use the functionality of creating SCCM applications from the Store.  While the creation of app works fine, the deployment doesn't as it requires access to the store.

Is there a way to block the Microsoft Store for normal use, but to allow access to it when deploying apps?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.
