AfW Launcher ' Screen Pinned'

Dear Community,

we are using android 7+ Devices with Android for Work Enrollment. (Tap 7 times on the screen and scan the qr code to enroll).
This is an easy process and works fine.

But we are having an Issue as soon as we deploy a Launcher Profile.

The Launcher will be pushed to the device, then it gets ' screen pinned' , we cannot use the status bar and System messages are in the background so we cannot access it from the device.
This is for Example Problematic for entering the SIM PIN - Once the Device is started it will go in Launcher mode and the SIM PIN Message is in the Background.
Or another Example is, we cannot close apps because the buttons are restricted.

How can we prevent that the Launcher gets pinned?

With Android Legacy Enrollment, system messages and Status bar was still available when you are in Launcher mode.

Any Ideas?

Thanks & Regards
Marvin

Found the Issue. Need to Add the backgroud app systemui and to get the statusbar to work I used this custom profile.
