How to install an app via SOTI with silently granted permissions

How to install an app via SOTI with silently granted permissions

Hello,

I am referencing a similar but less specific question here: https://discussions.soti.net/thread/set-app-permissions-with-soti/

I am using Android+ management with SOTI MobiControl.

Basically I understand how to use Stagenow to create an XML that can then be called in the Post Install script in MobiControl package builder. However, within StageNow I cannot find anything that will allow me to grant permissions automatically for an app (basically automatically granting the pop up for Location, Storage, etc). Can anyone help me find the actual commands I could manually add to my XML or perhaps a StageNow configuration I'm missing?

Thank you!

If you use the AppMgr CSP from StageNow to perform the app install for you then the permissions required by the app will be silently granted. There is nothing you have to do, or can do, to control what permissions are set, its more so a byproduct of utilizing that installation method instead of letting SOTI install the APK for you.

Ah, this seems to be what I was missing. I was using that method in StageNow but added the file as an APK in the package builder. In that thread you linked he said you have to add it as a file with an underscore. A bit odd but nothing crazy. Thanks for the help!
