Settings Manager for Android Enterprise

Settings Manager for Android Enterprise

There is no  Settings Manager in the Android Enterprise Profile configurations.

In kiosk mode, we need to let the user connect to wifi. We were thinking of using Settings Manager but that option doesn't exist.

How then could we achive this?

Thank you

maybe try a launch option directly to the Wifi Settings?

 

com.android.settings.wifi.WifiSettings

You can just add a kiosk item

 

    action://CONFIGURE_WIFI

 

to allow end-users to choose the Wifi network(s) available and its password.

Hi Kavinda,

 

There's been some update since I last posted in this thread.  Settings Manager configuration in profile is supported on Android Enterprise devices for MobiControl v14.1.7 and later.  So, it is possible to configure corresponding Settings Manager app to allow device end-users to configure various Wifi settings/parameters.

 

However, it you just want to allow adding/re-configuring Wifi network(s) in Kiosk mode without using Settings Manager app,  you can just add a Kiosk-Mode  item 

 

    action://CONFIGURE_WIFI

 

in the "Package Name or Script File or URL" field, together with any desirable display name and icon.  You can find details on how to set up kiosk-mode/lockdown-menu from Soti MobiControl online manual at

  https://www.soti.net/mc/help/v14.2/en/console/helpindex.html

Nice! I just swapped out my script call to launch com.android.settings.wifi.WifiSettings to this and it works great. It is a different UI but it still works:

I am trying use this metod "action://CONFIGURE_WIFI" - works well but only with WPA/WPA2 PSK encryption (it isn't valid for 802.1x networks).

@Matt

How do you launch "com.android.settings.wifi.WifiSettings"?

With action:// or launch:// or ????


Does anyone know how I can enter username/password for 802.1x encrypted network from Kiosk-Mode?

My device is in Corporate Owner mode.


Thanks in advance.

Try using

   launch://com.android.settings/com.android.settings.wifi.WifiSettings

or

    launch://com.android.settings/.wifi.WifiSettings

Hi Raymond.

No. This doesn't work.
These commands open a whole Android settings window.
:(

I have tried using the Mobicontrol Settings Manager and it doesn't permit setup an enterprise encryption network.
Only Open, WEP and PSK (the image below). And it's same that where I launch action://CONFIGURE_WIFI

I will write a mail to support@soti.net.
Let's see what they tell me.

I hope this has an early solution.
