Quickconnect file association in Android 4.1

HI all,

 

I've managed to get onboarding working for Windows / iOS but having trouble with Android.

 

I get the application off the play store however when i click on the link to the profile, it simply downloads a file and doesn't open this within the QuickConnect app.

 

Something i'm doing wrong here or a bug perhaps?

 

Android version 4.1.2 Galaxy S2 tab.

CPPM 6.2.x

Are you getting any kind of error. I know a few guys had issues with the redirect URL. I haven't seen any issues with file not associating correctly.

Try to rerun the network settings profile and the provisioning profile so it makes a new file and see if that helps.

I would suggest that you open a TAC case to dig into the issue.
Thank You,
Troy

no error but after some further testing i've found that its Firefox that is the issue. Using the native Android browser works fine.

An update for anybody else looking at this problem.

 

TAC have confirmed the following:

 

The .networkconfig file is served from Onboard using the MIME type arubanetworks/networkconfig. Our QuickConnect application registers for this MIME type with the Android system. The Android native browser honors this MIME type association and correctly launches the application when the file is received. Non-native browsers are not able to do this.

 

We suggest you to use Android native browser to avoid this issue.

 

So Firefox can' t be used to onboard an android device.

Hi,

I am still having a problem with the native browser.

Can you add a option to associate that file from the app itself.
