Configure and use Hotspot with lockdown?
To enable and disable Wifi Hotspot respectively, you can add kiosk item script:// to call on-device script file to run script commands
Script Command Set
It seems this command only turns Wi-Fi off and on for the test device I am using. S9+ on Android 9 and on the latest agent version. Ideally, we would like the functionally for users to configure the hotspot as done in the default settings menu.
Is it even possible to have the end-user configure hotspot in lockdown?
I was recently doing testing with enabling Hotspot on Samsung devices and I found a way to launch into the the Hotspot settings from the lockdown screen, which on 9.0 devices it seems to work well with limiting full settings access, but devices that are 8.0 and lower allow full settings access from what I saw. Hopefully these help you.
Both versions below work for me for either adding as a lockdown icon or sending script command
start activity com.android.settings/com.android.settings.Settings$WifiApSettingsActivity
Thanks for the post!
Please follow the below options to access tethering options or WiFi settings with hotspot info:
-Send a script wifiapenable 1 & restartagent to the device and upon the agent restarting the hotspot is enabled
