Permissions question

Hi,

 

I am using dev alpha device and I am accessing another device on network in my app, I suppose for this I need <permission>access_internet</permission> which I have in my xml file. The problem is I do not get asked for this when I install - only shared files permission is ever requested - is this a known issue or should I be trying to fix it?

 

Also, do I need to request any permission for bluetooth access?

 

My app currently ok on dev alpha with only shared files permission being requested/granted.

 

Thanks.

Re: Permissions question

The access_internet permission has not, as far as I'm aware, ever even been required, though I think it's documented as being required. In any case no, the user never gets asked about that so it's not something unique to you.

Re: Permissions question

Maybe the answer to your second question involves the first. The description of "access_internet" is general enough that it could possibly cover the Bluetooth capability as well. I haven't seen any talk of this but I've been ignoring Bluetooth. Search forum for that one? http://developer.blackberry.com/native/documentation/bb10/com.qnx.doc.native_sdk.devguide/com.qnx.do...
