This question comes from MS doc found here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/mem/intune/enrollment/android-dedicated-devices-fully-managed-enroll
When we switched from device administrator to Android Enterprise, having a work profile was the only enrollment option unless you wanted a fully managed device like for a kiosk. The work profile was a bit different, but we like it a lot having corporate data separated. A few months ago, we noticed there is an additional enrollment profile as well as compliance policies distinguishing between "Corporate-owned devices with work profile" and "Personally-owned devices with work profile". We still have the ability to apply Personal vs Corporate device ownership, but now we have these 2 mostly identical enrollment profiles where the only difference is that for corporate owned devices you have to enter in the "afw#setup" on a FRESH WIPED device.
Will there ever be a way to configure "Corporate-owned devices with work profile" without requiring the device be wiped first? If not, it will be quite the undertaking moving from Android device administrator if we tell everyone they need to wipe their phones first. For personal devices with a work profile it is not required, so what are the technical differences?
