can we detect if agent is uninstalled from device?

My use case is that I am willing to detect if any of the end-point user uninstall the agent intentionally. I am unable to find any plugin as of now.

you only should be able to uninstall the agent if the user has admin rights. You can check with a  extra script via gpo for the existance of the ocs program folder and its contents.

If the user uninstalls the agent the agent the agent does not report inventory anymore.

you can compare the online pc's last connection (active directory)  date with the inventory date then you should see any pc which hasn't the agent anymore.

There is a workaround to add a script in uninstallation method to send deviceId to OCS Server upon uninstallation.

I don't give local admin rights to users, even from IT department, even I. So users can NOT install or remove applications.

Also it's a rule for MORE security ... Even you can also use LAPS in Microsoft environnement : Local Admin Password Solution for change password
