I'm evaluating the community version installed on-premise for my company. Looking ahead, if things work, we would move to the premium version (on-premise anyway).

I can't make an internally developed application work if I install it via headwind mdm on the device (installed on the same non-administered device it works correctly).

Studying the device's logcat I see (many) error messages regarding NFC access permissions:

--------- beginning of crash

03-28 14:38:30.171  7138  7138 E AndroidRuntime: FATAL EXCEPTION: main

03-28 14:38:30.171  7138  7138 E AndroidRuntime: Process: com.example.imballaggi_app, PID: 7138

Any idea?

Thanks in advance.

Headwind MDM should automatically grant all runtime permissions, but probably this doesn't work correctly for NFC.

Please try the following: open the configuration which device is using, and set "Permissions for other apps": "Ask user for all permissions". Then uninstall your app, and re-install it through MDM. Probably this would make your app working.

Also, make sure the field "Restrictions" in the "MDM settings" tab is empty.
