How can I disable Admin app deletion in the Work Profile?

I'm providing a provisioning service to my customer that gives them a Samsung phone with a Work Profile. Uninstall, force stop and clear data for the WP Administrator app have been disabled. The problem is that the end user can still delete the Administrator app in the Work Profile by going into the WP Settings and selecting Special access > Device admin apps. Is there a way to disable the Delete action in this case? For reference, the phones are Samsung S9s & S20s running Android 9 (Pie). I have access to Knox APIs, if that's where the answer lies. Thanks in advance.

I don't know much about work profile on phone but if you set up one on the device shouldn't it not have have access to administrator? Maybe check Knox API
I feel like Jethro bodine sitting in a class of third graders who are smarter than me. The questions involving things I've never heard of are fascinating. I guess it's more home schooling and can check theory out here. I never gave thought you my devices just used th3m. Having a problem made me have to figure out how to fix it. That's the way I am. I want to know why. Little did I know I would fall down the rabbit hole after Alice. I want to know everything all at once. It's all your guys fault. I was blissfully ignorant. When I talk about things with my buddies their eyes already glass over. Now their going to have to deal with something new.ROTMFFLMMFAO Simply fascinating.
