Workspace ONE UEM includes safeguards to prevent the removal of production versions of Workspace ONE UEM proprietary applications when you remove the test versions from the console. You can add and remove the test version by following a specific task order.

Definition of Proprietary, Non-Store, Workspace ONE UEM Applications

A proprietary, non-store, Workspace ONE UEM application, like Secure Launcher, is seeded or included in the Workspace ONE UEM instance. It is part of the Workspace ONE UEM Installer and you deploy it to devices with a profile or with other settings in the console. Some enterprises want to test versions of these applications before they deploy them to production.


  • Separate Testing Workspace ONE UEM console Instance and Test Groups - If possible, test applications in a separate environment with a testing instance of the Workspace ONE UEM console.
  • Application ID - Workspace ONE UEM uses the application ID to identify the test version of the proprietary application.
  • Application Removal Commands - Remove the test version before you retire or delete the application. If you skip this step, Workspace ONE UEM does not queue application removal commands for these test applications.
