writesecuresetting on Android+

writesecuresetting on Android+

Mobicontrol: 13.3

Devices: Panasonic FZ-A2

Android: 6.0.1

Tried to send both (through SOTI-script):

writesecuresetting –sys screen_brightness 200

writesecuresetting –sys screen_off_timeout 60000

But to no avail

(I used 'watchsettings on' to know the setting, this worked fine)

Many of the SOTI scripts are not supported by Android Enterprise managed devices and I don't think they've made it very clear which, if any, will be supported and when. I've been performing my own independent testing of scripting support on DA vs. AEDO devices and there are a number of key scripts not currently supported including: kill_application, wipeapplication, and watchsettings.

Hey,

kill_application, wipeapplication, and watchsettings al work fine on this device.

But I can't get the writesettings operational

No error though on the device when sending or in the console, but the setting on the device remains unchanged

Unfortunately the writesettings, writesecuresettings, replacetxt commands do not work on Android plus (DA) or AEDO devices. The loss of the kill_application, wipeapplication, and watchsettings when moving to AEDO is very concerning. Particularly when when trying to update applications on devices in the field.

writesecuresettings does work with Android+ (DA) as we use it quite frequently with Zebra Android devices. We definitely miss it, along with the other mentioned scripts in AEDO however.

Of course you are right Matt. I was a little overzealous with my post.
