Readme

Android Permission Cordova Plugin
This plugin is designed to support Android's new permissions checking mechanism, and has been updated to include the newest permissions added in Android 13.
The Android permissions checking mechanism changed starting in Android 6.0. In the past, permissions were granted by users when they decided to install the app. Now the permissions should be granted by users when they are using the app.
Older Android plugins may not support this new approach or request the necessary permissions, but Cordova developers can work around this problem by using this permissions plugin to request the appropriate permissions prior to using the older plugin.
As a convenience we support browser and iOS platforms as well, but this permissions plugin will simply reply that any permission checked or requested was granted.

Installation

cordova plugin add cordova-plugin-android-permissions

※ Support Android SDK >= 14

Usage

API

var permissions = cordova.plugins.permissions;
permissions.checkPermission(permission, successCallback, errorCallback);
permissions.requestPermission(permission, successCallback, errorCallback);
permissions.requestPermissions(permissions, successCallback, errorCallback);

Deprecated API - still work now, will not support in the future.

permissions.hasPermission(permission, successCallback, errorCallback);
permissions.hasPermission(successCallback, errorCallback, permission);
permissions.requestPermission(successCallback, errorCallback, permission);

Permission Name

Following the Android design. See Manifest.permission.
// Example
permissions.ACCESS_COARSE_LOCATION
permissions.CAMERA
permissions.GET_ACCOUNTS
permissions.READ_CONTACTS
permissions.READ_CALENDAR
...

Examples

var permissions = cordova.plugins.permissions;

Quick check

permissions.hasPermission(permissions.CAMERA, function( status ){
  if ( status.hasPermission ) {
    console.log("Yes :D ");
  }
  else {
    console.warn("No :( ");
  }
});

Quick request

permissions.requestPermission(permissions.CAMERA, success, error);

function error() {
  console.warn('Camera permission is not turned on');
}

function success( status ) {
  if( !status.hasPermission ) error();
}

Example multiple permissions

var list = [
  permissions.CAMERA,
  permissions.GET_ACCOUNTS
];

permissions.hasPermission(list, callback, null);

function error() {
  console.warn('Camera or Accounts permission is not turned on');
}

function success( status ) {
  if( !status.hasPermission ) {
  
    permissions.requestPermissions(
      list,
      function(status) {
        if( !status.hasPermission ) error();
      },
      error);
  }
}
