@Ava, that must be a mandatory app configuration. The apps added as mandatory here will be force installed on the device and will be added back even on uninstallation. You’ll find this under app management section for android in the policy. What you want sounds like the whitelisting feature, that will ensure only the apps added on the whitelist collection is allowed on the device and other apps are blacklisted (I think it’s hidden).
I too have a question… we have already deployed a policy payload with mandatory apps configuration. The apps will be installed and will be mandated on the device but will the app be updated when an update comes. We are using Play Store apps only and we have not had any app update coming for our apps recently so not sure if that’ll apply.
