android – How do I properly fire ACTION_REQUEST_IGNORE_BATTERY_OPTIMIZATIONS intent?

Posted by: admin April 23, 2020 Leave a comment

Questions:

As stated in the documentation:

“An app holding the REQUEST_IGNORE_BATTERY_OPTIMIZATIONS permission can trigger a system dialog to let the user add the app to the whitelist directly, without going to settings. The app fires a ACTION_REQUEST_IGNORE_BATTERY_OPTIMIZATIONS Intent to trigger the dialog.”

Can someone tell me the proper way to fire this intent?

How to&Answers:
Intent intent = new Intent();
String packageName = context.getPackageName();
PowerManager pm = (PowerManager) context.getSystemService(Context.POWER_SERVICE);
if (pm.isIgnoringBatteryOptimizations(packageName))
    intent.setAction(Settings.ACTION_IGNORE_BATTERY_OPTIMIZATION_SETTINGS);
else {
    intent.setAction(Settings.ACTION_REQUEST_IGNORE_BATTERY_OPTIMIZATIONS);
    intent.setData(Uri.parse("package:" + packageName));
}
context.startActivity(intent);

See this answer for more information.

Answer:

To avoid suspension from Google Play Store, Its Better to Take User to Battery Optimization Settings, for Manually Adding Application to White-list

Intent myIntent = new Intent();
myIntent.setAction(Settings.ACTION_IGNORE_BATTERY_OPTIMIZATION_SETTINGS);
startActivity(myIntent);

Also It doesn’t need to have

<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.REQUEST_IGNORE_BATTERY_OPTIMIZATIONS"/>

permission in the manifest file

Answer:

    Intent myIntent = new Intent();
    if (Build.VERSION.SDK_INT >= Build.VERSION_CODES.M) {
        myIntent.setAction(Settings.ACTION_REQUEST_IGNORE_BATTERY_OPTIMIZATIONS);
        myIntent.setData(Uri.parse("package:" + getActivity().getPackageName()));
    }
    startActivity(myIntent);
