How to Deactivate Android in the Enterprise Work Container on Non-Compliance

Compliance settings can be configured on Android Enterprise devices. Once the device becomes non-compliant, the work container deactivates or becomes functionless if the deactivation settings are enabled via policies. The moment the device becomes compliant again, the container is re-activated. This feature is applicable for devices enrolled both in profile owner and device owner mode.

Deactivate Work Container on Non-Compliance via Policy

To deactivate work container via policy,

  1. Login to your Hexnode MDM portal.
  2. Navigate to Policies > New Policy. You can also choose to continue with an existing one.
  3. Go to General Settings > Android for Work – Compliance Settings. Click Configure.
  4. Select the option Deactivate Android for Work container on non-compliance. Specify the time duration after which the container gets deactivated.
  5. Next, associate the policy with target device. Go to Policy Targets > +Add Devices.
  6. Choose the devices you wish to associate the policy with and click on OK.
  7. Click Save.

If the device becomes non-complaint, the work container gets deactivated automatically after the specified time, thereby hiding all the applications in the container.

The video shows the apps disappearing when the device becomes non-compliant.
