Hello, we seem to have problem installing a manually uploaded app to run in kiosk mode. Upon trying to install the app on the device, a dialog window with title “Action not allowed” flashes briefly.

    Hey, Thanks for reaching out. We are here to help you.

    This may be because the policy associated with the device is restricting the app installation from unknown sources.
    To ensure that the option Install apps from unknown sources are enabled, please navigate to Policies–>Android Settings –>Advanced Restrictions–>Allow App Settings. Enable the ‘Install apps from unknown sources’ option

    PS: This is supported on Samsung Knox, Android Enterprise-Profile Owner, and Device Owner mode
