Intune App Protection Policies and iOS Exemptions

Disclaimer: While the below information should be true, I can not seem to get the App Protection Policies to behave in an expected manner with regards to exclusions.

Hello Everyone!

No amount of searching has been very helpful for me personally when trying to find iOS application identifier URLs. 

A URL identifier is a unique name that each iOS application must have. Using this name an existing application on an iOS device can call upon that app to perform actions, such as open a file. 

To my knowledge there is no list out there for such identifiers. What I would like to do is start that list here. 

My only methods to finding out this URL identifier are to either ask the developer or to take a guess and test it inside of safari. If you open safari and type the following into the address bar

guessedappname:// 

You should get a result of either app not found, or something that asks if you would like to allow an app to open the webpage. See screen shots below.




Without further ado here is the very short list of ones I have used in the past. Please, please, please if you know any additional ones leave a comment below and lets get them added to the list.


  • Salesforce - salesforce1
  • Go To Meeting - gotomeeting
  • AutoCAD DWG Viewer and Editor - autocad
  • Webex - wbx
  • Zoom Cloud Meetings - zoomus
  • Slack - slack
  • Apple Maps - maps
  • Google Maps - googlemaps

The items on this list were generated by myself and the community. I have not verified the accuracy of most of them. I am asking for the communities help in either adding to the list or for a more foolproof way of finding out the applications URL identifier.

Thanks everyone!
