Soti Surf : permission on Zebra TC75X ?

Soti Surf : permission on Zebra TC75X ?

Hello all,

we work with zebra tc75x

Our server mobicontrol is on version 13.3.3454

The agent on your device is on version 13.3.2 build 1014

the device is enrolled on android +

 

I must to install the soti surf (14.2.0.119) on more 200 or 300 devices during the night ..

but I've notice that after the soti surf is installed , the app need some permission -> 4 app permissions is ASK after the installation

 

How I can make for to accept PERMISSION automatically ?

Is there a way ? I can't imagine press 4 time on each device ...it take me 1 day perhaps ..

 

thanks for your time

As far as I know, there is no solution for your combination of server version and Android+ device agent.  Global or per-app permission managements are only available for more recent server version on Android-Enterprise devices.

 

Maybe there are some workarounds for Zebra devices using the MX management layer.  For that, maybe our friend Matt Dermody can help you out.

You can use AppMgr to install the app throug MX (stagenow can help you build the xml file).

Then you need to work against mobicontrol.

Change the extension of the apk, otherwise the package will install it normally, then change it to apk_

In your post install script, first do a copy script to create a new file with the apk extension, then use mxconfig to install it with MX.

 

Note : maybe you can install through mx an apk with its extension changed, hence not requiring the copy script, but I didn't try.

Hello Raymond, Laurent,

 

thanks for your time

 

@laurent -> if i well understand i can install the apk WIHTOUT ask to accept the permission.

I know a little stage now from zebra, i've seen yesturday it's possible to make a xml file who can be downloaded with a sync files and execute a script > MXCONFIG for to install an apk

 

I will try today and come again if i have some problem ..

Looks like Laurent beat me to the punch. An AppMgr based install is exactly what I would have suggested anyway. I love having multiple options to solve a problem with both SOTI + MX when deploying Zebra devices. Unbeatable combination for COSU in my opinion.
