Service – Week 29-2021 Workspace ONE Updates

Important Releases and KB Updates

  • Third-Party SDK apps Package Visibility for Android API level 30 (85161)
    • Android SDK 21.5 onwards supports apps targeting Android 11. Starting from November 2021 all app updates will be required to target Android API level 30.
    • The purpose of this article is to help third-party SDK apps targetting API 30 with package visibility.
    • To comply with Android 11, SDK 21.5 has made the following changes:
      • Support Android 11 Package visibility
        • Apps targeting API level 30, are restricted to query about the installed apps on the system. This is done to minimize the sensitive information shared by the apps, which is not required. Client SDK 21.5 has included a query parameter to support this behavior.
      • Changes in Network libraries
        • If the app is using AWOkHttpClient, it’s preferable to set the trust manager. This is in accordance with the latest update for okhttpclient library – 4.9.0
      • AWHttpClient is a wrapper class for DefaultHttpClient
        •  This is deprecated and advised to use AWUrlConnection.
