Upload of data to Microsoft Intune failed


When attempting to add an app to the Intune portal using the Intune Software Publisher as described here you get the following error message:


Reviewing the WindowsIntuneSoftwarePublisher.log in C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\Temp\SoftwarePublishing

Shows the following error “The remote server returned an error: (401) Unauthorized”



In my case, while the user account used to add the app to Intune was a global admin, it did not have an EM+S license assigned.

The solution was to assign an EM+S license to the account


After that, the app data uploaded successfully to Intune
