PermissionRequester

public class PermissionRequester
extends Object

java.lang.Object
   ↳ android.support.test.runner.permission.PermissionRequester


Requests a runtime permission on devices running Android M (API 23) and above.

This class is usually used to grant runtime permissions to avoid the permission dialog from showing up and blocking the App's Ui. This is especially helpful for Ui-Testing to avoid loosing control over your application under test.

The requested permissions will be granted for all test methods in the test class. Use addPermissions(String) to add a permission to the permission list. To request all permissions use the requestPermissions() method.

Note: Usually this class would not be used directly, but through GrantPermissionRule.

This API is currently in beta.
