The official AAM 6.0.0-beta.3 release is out. Download it from the official WordPress repository.

Restrict Ability To Deactivate AAM Plugin

Some websites may have multiple administrators that you would like to limit access to certain features. It is easy to revoke a few critical capabilities from other admins (e.g. the ability to delete other users or switch themes). However, if you give them the opportunity to manage installed plugins, they can easily deactivate AAM and gain full control over the site.

This policy restricts the ability to deactivate AAM plugin on the Plugins page, so now you can be sure that privileged users do not gain more control that you would want them to have.

    "Version": "1.0.0",
    "Dependency": {
        "wordpress": ">=5.0.3",
        "advanced-access-manager": ">=5.8.3"
    "Statement": [
            "Effect": "deny",
            "Resource": "Plugin:advanced-access-manager",
            "Action": ["WP:deactivate", "WP:edit"]

Keep in mind, that you would also want to restrict the ability for your users to edit physical files. There are several options here and the most easiest one is to revoke the capabilities edit_themes and edit_plugins.
