Can my DA app coexist with a UEM app running as DO?

Device Admin (DA) apps can coexist with a UEM app running as DO, as long as it:

You will need to work with the UEM to delegate the required permissions if your DA app needs to do either of the following:

  • target Android Q or higher
  • manage devices via Android APIs

For details, see: DevicePolicyManager.DELEGATION_APP_RESTRICTIONS.

Note the following:

  • In Android Enterprise, there is only one Device Owner and it optionally delegates to other apps to enforce specific policies in its name. Hence, if multiple apps are applying the same policy, then the policy is set to the last value that was set.
  • In the case of Knox DA, if both DO and Knox DA set the same policy, then the policy that is enforced is the more restrictive one. For example, if the Knox DA disables Camera, Wi-Fi, etc., the DO will not be able to enable Camera, Wi-Fi, etc.
