Remote Control of Zebra devices

 

System requirements

  • Zebra mobile device running on Android operating system
  • Zebra mobile device using MX 8.3+ (https://techdocs.zebra.com/mx/mx-version-on-device/)
  • ISL Light 4 for Android 4.4.1907.50+

Mobile Remote Support of Zebra devices

As a security enhancement to traditional platform signature model, Zebra introduced new Event Injection Service, which allows key and touch events to be injected into the Zebra system only by an allowed, non-platform signed application.

ISL Online integrated Zebra’s EventInjection Service into ISL Light for Android application and together with appropriate access manager (AccessMgr) configuration settings, it unlocks control to access key and touch injection events (e.g. remote control).

Access manager configuration settings are specified in a XML file, which needs to be pushed on the Zebra device alongside ISL Light for Android application.

Configuration options

There are several options on how to push access manager configuration file (XML) on a Zebra devices.

MDM/EMM tools using XML custom configuration

If your MDM/EEM tool supports importing and distributing predefined configuration files (XML), you can use the following access manager configuration settings. Save the following as .xml file and push it using your MDM/EEM tool.
