Play a macro automatically

I have to configure an application installed via a profile, is it possible to record a macro and add it to the post install script in order to configure automatically the installed application ?

And is the application your looking to configure only configurable manually? Is there no external configuration file option or Managed Configuration available? It would be unlikely for an enterprise grade application to not support either option.

Application to install is Gboard.

After deploying the apk we have to change 4 options in Android Keyboard Settings

We would like to deploy and configure the new keyboard without end user action.

Thank you

Hi Bruno,

 

Thank you for your response. Depending on the device, OS, and MobiControl enrollment type, it might be possible to identify settings on your OS by sending the "watchsettings on" script. It would be difficult to adjust the settings of a particular application directly using script. 

 

You may try the following on a test device to see if it can help you with your requirements. 

 

Send  the "watchsettings on" script to the device, and manually toggle OS settings on the device to see if the settings can be logged.

 

On version 13 of MobiControl, logs are found on the logs section of the info panel screen when you click on the device. On version 14 of MobiControl, they can be found in the logs section when you enter a device in the view devices page.  

 

The entries logged should appear like the one below:

Custom Log (URI:content://settings/secure SETTING:bluetooth_on VALUE:1)

 

Try to send a script to toggle this setting, for example:

Writesecuresetting –sec bluetooth_on 1

Writesecuresetting –sec bluetooth_on 0

 

In this example, the scripts will turn bluetooth on and off respectively. 

 

After you have found the particular setting and finished your testing, you may send the "watchsettings off" script to end logging.

 

You may try to include the scripts in the "post install script" portion of the package and see if it works for you.  

 

If "watchsettings on" is able to identify settings you want to change on the OS, I would recommend you create a case with SOTI Support and see if we can assist you in this process. 

 

I hope the information provided helps,

 

Kind Regards,
