Add app permissions

The AppMeasurement library requires the following permissions to send data and record offline tracking calls:


To add these permissions, add the following lines to your AndroidManifest.xml file, which is in the application project directory:

<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.INTERNET" /> 
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_NETWORK_STATE" />

To enable in-app messaging:

Update AndroidManifest.xml to declare the full screen activity and enable the Message Notification Handler:

android:theme="@android:style/Theme.Translucent.NoTitleBar" /> 
<receiver android:name="" />

If you select modal layout when you create a message in Adobe mobile services, select one of the following themes:

  • Theme.Translucent.NoTitleBar.Fullscreen
  • Theme.Translucent.NoTitleBar
  • Theme.Translucent

For example:

android:windowSoftInputMode="adjustUnspecified|stateHidden" /> 
<receiver android:name="" />

Implement custom tracking

In html files, add the following to the <head> tag where you want to use tracking:

<script type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8" src="ADB_Helper.js"></script>
