addHomeShortcut sending SecurityException in KioskMode


I am currently developping an app in which I want to use a KioskMode. My license works fine, but when it come to adding a shortcut with addHomeException(), I get a security exception : 

Admin  does not have android.permission.sec.MDM_APP_MGMT OR

It is confusing knowing that the license and the admin permissions are working.

If you have any solution concerning this issue, please help me out ! ;)

Hi Antoine,

What kind of KPE key are you using? Is it a development limited key? The development limited key does not grant you the KNOX_APP_MGMT permission, which could be why you are seeing that exception. If you are using a full dev key or a commercial key, make sure you have the following line in your manifest file:

<uses-permission android:name="" />

Best regards,

Hello Mikayla,

Thank you for your quick answer, I was using a development limited key indeed.

Best regards

PS : With my key I can access to the Kiosk mode (without any shortcut) is that normal?
