We get this build exception Error:Failed to resolve: ly.img.android:authorization:

Unfortunately, this is a bug in gradle and java

  1. You have to trust both certificates with this command line commands
    wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/escline/InstallCert/master/InstallCert.java
    javac InstallCert.java
    java InstallCert artifactory.img.ly
  2. Navigate in the Console to your project folder and clear the gradle cache.
    # On Mac & Linux
    ./gradlew cleanBuildCache
    # On Windows
    gradlew cleanBuildCache
  3. Do a rebuild in Android Studio (Do it twice if the first build fails)

I just use the editor, why does the app request permission to use the camera?

For an easier integration, our SDK has got its own AndroidManifest.xml which enables the camera permission. This file will be merged with your AndroidManifest.xml where you can remove the permission:

    <uses-permission tools:node="remove" android:name="android.permission.CAMERA"/>
    <uses-feature tools:node="remove" android:name="android.hardware.camera"/>
    <uses-feature tools:node="remove" android:name="android.hardware.camera.autofocus"/>

The App crashes with “Exception Renderscript V8 Class not found”

You probably forgot to enable RenderScript support (renderscriptSupportModeEnabled true). Please take a look at the getting started guide for more information.

The App crashes with a “Permission Exception”

Please make sure that you delegate onRequestPermissionsResult to PermissionRequest.onRequestPermissionsResult:

public void onRequestPermissionsResult(int requestCode, @NonNull String[] permissions, @NonNull int[] grantResults) {
   PermissionRequest.onRequestPermissionsResult(requestCode, permissions, grantResults);
   super.onRequestPermissionsResult(requestCode, permissions, grantResults);

App crashed on Android 6.0

This is probably happening due to a Permission Exception as explained above.
