Differentiating between activities with similar names

In Android 5.0 and above:

  • When several activities share the same activity name, you can specify the activity you want to restrict from its text title or content.

    Here is an example of how to restrict the security setting in the Settings application, but allow users to visit Wi-Fi/Bluetooth activities:

    com.android.settings.SubSettings: Security

    When "SubSetting" is the activity name and "Security" is the activity text title.


  • You can monitor the devices activities names and text by Inspecting device log with the tag "ExperiAuto"

    To get the device log you need to open a cmd line from Cloud agent installation dir found in -

    Mac DHM - Usually in /Applications/Experitest/Cloud/Agent/bin/adb

    Windows DHM - Usually in C:\Program Files (x86)\Experitest\Cloud\Agent\bin\adb

    And run the following command

    adb -s [deviceSN] logcat -s ExperiAuto

    When you visit the activity you want to block, the activity name/text will be printed in the device log.

  • No labels
