Internal applications are often developed to perform enterprise-specific tasks. Abrupt removal of these applications can cause frustration and halt work. You can prevent the removal of important internal applications, by using the application removal protection. Application Removal Protection ensures that the system does not remove business-critical applications unless approved by the admin and holds the app removal commands based on the threshold values.
Application removal protection system canvasses the application removal command queue for values that meet or exceed your threshold values. Several application or group state changes can trigger application removal commands. For example, application removal commands trigger when you edit your smart groups, publish applications, deactivate, or retire applications, delete applications an so on. Complete the following steps to configure application removal protection in an organization group at the customer level or below in the Workspace ONE UEM console.
- Navigate to .

Setting Description Devices Affected Enter the maximum number of devices that can lose a critical application before the loss hinders the work of the enterprise.

Email Template Select an email notification template and make customizations. The system includes the App Remove Limit Reached Notification template, which is specific to the app removal protection. Send Email to Enter email addresses to receive notifications about held removal commands so that the recipients can take actions in the app removal log.
