java – How to enforce the custom permission on an Activity in Android?-ThrowExceptions

Exception or error:

I have created a custom permission in android as:

<permission
    android:name="com.master.me.CUSTOM_PERMISSION_TEST"
    android:description="@string/des_permission"
    android:label="labelhere">
</permission>

How will I enforce this in my Activity in AndroidManifest.xml file?

How to solve:

Use android:permission attribute into activity tag.

Like below

<activity android:permission="com.master.me.CUSTOM_PERMISSION_TEST"
            android:name=".YourActivity"
            android:label="@string/activity_label" />

And you need to add uses-permission to your custom permission, when your other application needs to launch this activity.

<uses-permission android:name="com.master.me.CUSTOM_PERMISSION_TEST"/>
