While trying new permissions API, notably:
ActivityCompat.checkSelfPermission ActivityCompat.shouldShowRequestPermissionRationale ActivityCompat.requestPermissions
(whichn is not listed as "normal" permission)
I've received an "unknown permissionn exception".
Is it a bug? Or is USE_CREDENTIALS a normal permission after all?Answer1:
USE_CREDENTIALS was removed from the Android SDK in Android 6.0. Not only will you not find it <a href="http://developer.android.com/reference/android/Manifest.permission.html" rel="nofollow">in
Manifest.permission in the docs</a>, but if you try hunting for it on an Android 6.0 device (by enumerating all permissions via
PackageManager), it does not seem to show up.
