External Configuration Support

This Support Application feature enables loading configurations from Play Store Managed Configurations and Intent Actions.


Support Application typically gets its configuration from the BlueFletch Launcher or from configuration files loaded onto the device via an MDM. In version 5.13.8, the Support Application now provides two additional methods for loading configurations: Play Store Managed Configurations and Intent Actions. With External Configuration Support, Support Application can store configurations within application data storage.

User Guide

To use Play Store Managed Configurations, you need to add the following fields to the application's Play Store listing:

  • configUrl: A URL referencing the desired configuration.

  • configChecksum: A configuration file checksum. This field is optional.

To use Intent Actions, you need to create an Intent Action with the action name com.bluefletch.support.config.ACTION_LOAD_CONFIG. The Intent Action should have the following extras:

  • url: A URL referencing the desired configuration. This is required.

  • org_id: The organization ID as found in the BlueFletch Portal. This is required.

Feature Configuration

To set up External Configuration Support for a particular device profile or device group, please follow the steps below:

Configuring with ADB Command
