MEM/Intune automatic Intune pkg wrapping in macOS

Last updated on 14. November 2021

Microsoft Intune allow to deploy packages over MDM but not in the default pkg format.
The only way here is the .itunemac to deploy packages via MEM. Behind this package is just a zip so when you rename the file to zip you can extract this file and have a look what is inside.

Structure of decompressed .itunemac file.
The Detection.xml is a kind of manifest file and contains the package name, version, bundleid.


In order to create an .intunemac in the first place, you need the Microsoft Intune App Wrapping Tool. You can download the command-line app from: https://github.com/msintuneappsdk/intune-app-wrapping-tool-mac

The syntax is relatively simple:

IntuneAppUtil -c <source_file> -o <output_file> [-i] [-n] [-v]

It is only very time-consuming if you have to wrap many packets at the same time. Therefore, I have built an “Automator” folder action that saves me the manual work.

I uploaded a short preview how it works
