This may be a bug in the documentation, try using no_config_default_apps

it doesn't work. probably mdm agent doesn't understand the command: no_config_default_apps?

Unfortunately, this restriction does not work correctly on all devices.

For example, on the test Samsung the launcher worked correctly.

is this related to the Android version? what is the alternative? if there is, can I do it in APK mode?
We believe this happens due to Android OS bugs. Restrictions do not work in the APK mode, they work in the MDM (Device Owner) mode only.
