Distribution by Work World: No contact permission possible?

Before i create a bug on jira i wanted to ask if it is maybe by design.

 

One of our apps requires the contacts permission to create some vCards.

However, if we distribute it using Work World the contacts permission is not requested.

The permission is set in the bar file.

 

I can reproduce the issue with a HelloWorld project where i request contact permissions only, it installes without any permission popup from Work World, while a sideload shows the permission popup.

 

Any ideas?

This is actually by design.  Some permissions (like PIM) don't prompt the user for permissions because it's assumed the application is trusted, since it has been vetted by the BlackBerry Enterprise Server admin.

Ok, that's good to know. Is there a documentation about the exact behavior?

Seems the issue on one of our apps is somwhere else then.
