Windows Phone 8.1 MDM : Application blacklisting not working with app store url and app package id changes RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    I have implemented app control in MDM where we block app on windows phone by package ids from below url.

    "http://www.windowsphone.com/en-in/store/app/flipkart/e79de9bc-6cdd-42ff-be8d-a75bba0db05e"

    Recently above url has been migrated to below new url:

    "https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/store/apps/flipkart/9wzdncrfj356"

    Here format and package id of apps got changed. I am not able to block apps on windows phone with new url app package id. I am not sure if device is referring to old package id or new.

    I have observed that my Windows phone store is still referring to windowsphone.com url when I try to download app from app store.

    Is this the reason apps from url "https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/store/apps/flipkart/9wzdncrfj356" not getting blocked on windows phone as app package id format is different.

    Device details:

    Model: NOKIA Lumia 630 DUAL SIM
    OS version: 8.10.14234.375
    Firmware revision number: 02040.00021.15053.36003
    Hardware revision number: 3.0.4.0
    Radio software version: 20c9.00069.0001
    Chip SOC version:8626

    App block was working fine before app store url changes.

    Please let me know if any solution/workaround available for this issue. Thanks.
