Ionic HTTP requires Android STORAGE PERMISSION on Update


i run into the problem that my app cannot auto update cause permission requirements changed. I upgraded my local http service to Ionic Native which requires cordova-file plugin which requires this crappy permission due to https functions like “downloadFile” or something like that.

I read on the cordova docs, that i can modify the AndroidManifest.xml manually. But that didnt seems the best solution for me. Its just a crappy behavior to modifiy it. Is it able to handle the following via cordovas xml?

  • Remove specieif permission.
  • BUT remove after “post_build” process (cause post_build includes plugins permission).
  • Is it generally fine to remove it? I dont want to use any downloadFile method??

Ran anyone other into this? I hope that iOS didnt have the same problems?

Thank you
