App permission to write file system - can it be set in the profile?

User3053 2 weeks ago in Application • updated by Richard 2 weeks ago 1

We are using the kiosk browser to have tablets default to an app we have developed.  We recently got some newer tablets that won't allow our app to write to the file system.  The user has to exit kiosk browser, go to launcher, settings, apps, our app, permissions, storage, allow.  Is there some way we can make this setting the default or make it part of the profile when we set up the tablet once instead of the user having to do this?  Our older tablets are Android 5.0.2 kernel 3.4.0+, sw V49610b and everything works fine.  The new tablets are Android 6.0.1, kernel 3.10.84, sw v52110e

Hi,

No I'm afraid this is not possible. Google changed the way apps are granted permissions in Android 6.0 or higher, we can't grant permissions ourselves.
