Not sure what you mean with "We are trying to avoid having these setting from being imported onto the local device.", since the title of this thread says "Published Apps", where I assume the settings for these apps are imported/exported from/to the RDSH server and not the local device.
Maybe it's just my misunderstanding, but can you explain a bit more of what you are trying to solve?
Disregard I was looking for a condition that I could use to capture published apps hosted on a server. Figured it out.
No worries, glad you found it.
