Can't get access token from Android SDK

Hi,

I am trying to recover the access token but I am encountering this error. The same code has worked a few months ago but now it is not working.

Account account = CloverAccount.getAccount(context);
CloverAuth.AuthResult authResult = CloverAuth.authenticate(context, account);

Result:


I'm using Emulator with Clover Station 2018 profile.
Clover Android SDK 221.9

Am I doing something wrong or is it an issue?

Thanks

Hi @javichaques, can you confirm some extra information for us? Is this a new emulator you've just set up or have you been using this particular emulator for development previously?

If this is new, have you associated the "device" to a test merchant (following the steps shown here)?

Lower your SDK version to 25 max.

In Android Oreo (8) there's a big difference in obtaining the Account, my suggestion is to keep the old SDK until further notice (I believe SDK 27 works too).

Hi @Chanel - I am having the same issue. I have associated the emulator with the sandbox account. I can confirm that the package matches the application definition and that the app-market indicates the app is installed on my virtual device. @Bryanne Vega I am getting a good account - confirmed that. Also tried backing down to v27, got the same result.

Try to uninstall the app, lower to version 25 of the SDK & reinstall/sideload.

Clean your project/build on your way too.

@Bryanne Vega Checkout the github for the CloverAuth class - seems like it hasn't changed since March 2017. Doesn't this imply that rolling back to v25 would not change the execution of the call that is failing? https://github.com/clover/clover-android-sdk/blob/master/clover-android-sdk/src/main/java/com/clover/sdk/util/CloverAuth.java

That's not how it works. Target SDK tells the Android OS what sort of compatibility layers to provide to your app. If you specify >=25, you are telling the OS you do not want the get accounts compatibility with older Android releases.

Just FYI we are working on providing an alternate interface to obtain the token that does not use account manager.

Solved this issue:
  1. Created a new app with a different package name on the sandbox developer portal
  2. Synchronized the app market on the virtual device - ensure new app shows in Installed Apps
  3. Rename the package in my AndroidManifest.xml and build.gradle to match the new app - also renamed the actual java package, though I'm not sure that is necessary.
  4. Rebuild and side-load.
  5. Rock n roll!
