Hi community,

When submitting our app to Appstore, they ask to define permission request for camera use. How to add such permission, when actually the component we use for camera is FileUpload not camera plugin.


Thanks,

Lambok

Hi Lambok,

I'm sorry I don't know the answer exactly. However, I can suggest you check the source code of the camera plugin.

I used it on one of my mobile application and when you want to use the camera it asks permission to the user. You may find how it works and implement your application. Also, I suggest you check the Cordova library.

Hope it helps.

Hi Ferhat,

Thanks for your reply. As I mention in my prev post I don't use the Camera Plugin. We use Upload component which coming as basic component of Outsystem mobile, which also has capability to take picture, like this:

Hi Lambok,

I understand your first message.

I'm trying to explain you need to ask your users your application will use their camera like following.
That is the security requirement for apple.

What I'm trying to explain; the camera plugin doing that permission request. You can install that component on separated (test) application on your environment. Then, you may find how it works. You don't need to use the camera plugin in your project. You only need to implement the same functionality to your application.

App wants to access Camera
