Get teams notification for the Top5 apps with installation errors

It is always important as an Intune admin to have an overview of the environment. Intune offers a lot of reports but as we all know you don’t look into them every day. Isn’t it easier to get a daily or weekly message in Teams and see the top failed app installation. I have already released some blogs with the topic of detecting anomalies in Intune with the help of cognitive services. In this blog I want to show you how to send a report that is already available in Intune to Teams using Azure Automation.

How did we get the data

In the reports in the app menu, there is exactly this overview that we need. We can see here the top 3 failed installations.
The question is how do we get this information?

With the help of an network trace in the browser we can see which graph endpoint is called. Since this is a POST call we still need the body that we have to send with this call. In the call we see that it called for the top 50 failed app installations but we want the top 5 so we adjust the body a bit.

This is all the information we need so let’s get started.
