Permissions problems

Hi guys,

I’m trying to upload my APK to the oculus store using the Oculus platform tool inside UE4.
I am getting the following mesage…

Your manifest includes the following potentially dangerous permissions:

  • android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE
  • android.permission.READ_EXTERNAL_STORAGE
  • android.permission.ACCESS_MEDIA_LOCATION

So, I ammended the RequiredManifestOverides.txt file, removing the lines…

  • android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE
  • android.permission.READ_EXTERNAL_STORAGE

This fixed the issue with the line…

  • android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE

But the warnings about the other two permissions remained.

  • android.permission.READ_EXTERNAL_STORAGE
  • android.permission.ACCESS_MEDIA_LOCATION

I also looked in the Unrealbuildtool at the Deployandroid settings and the only property that existed here was the “WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE” which explains why that was overwritten by the overides file.

But, I now cannot for the life of me work out where the other 2 permissions are being specified.
Any help on this would be amazing as I’m at the end of a very long road development wise and this seems to be the last hurdle.

Thanks,

Dave
