We run Android devices in KIOSK mode, and want users to able to update apps directly. Nothing happens when "Update" is clicked, it seems we need to whitelist / authorize some additional processes in KIOSK mode.

Could you please clarify what are the Android processes involved when an app is upgraded on a device ?

Thank you for your help

  • No it's whitelisted (com.android.packageinstaller) – Le vieux sage Jul 3 '18 at 13:16
  • Are you updating your apps via the Play Store? – Death Mask Salesman Jul 3 '18 at 13:32
  • This is through the Mobile Iron app (Mobile@Work / Apps@Work) which is whitelisted in KIOSK mode – Le vieux sage Jul 4 '18 at 14:17
