Permissions — what does “trusted application status” refer to?

For some device users, on startup they are presented with the following permissions dialog

 

 >>   "Would you like to grant AppX trusted application status?"

 

The user says yes and the app runs fine. But what does "trusted application status" mean? This seems really ambiguous, most permission dialogs refer to making a http message, accessing contact information and the like.

 

Final Question
Does "trusted application status" refer to accessing a specific API or a specific permission setting on the client devices?

 

I'd like to know the root cause of this since if it's an API access issue, I might exclude those calls from the app.

Re: Permissions — what does “trusted application status” refer to?

 

"trusted application status" refer to permission setting. 

 

Check this Classes:
net.rim.device.api.applicationcontrol.ApplicationPermissionsManager
net.rim.device.api.applicationcontrol.ApplicationPermissions

Re: Permissions — what does “trusted application status” refer to?

Bikas, thanks for the quick reply!

 

 >"trusted application status" refer to permission setting. 

 

by "refer to permission setting" do you mean that it referest to the usage of permission settings API (like net.rim.device.api.applicationcontrol.ApplicationPermissionsManager) or are you simply recommending that i look into these classes to manage permissions?

 

Thanks,

Peter
