Android Whitelisting an Android application programmatically


Example

Whitelisting won't disable the doze mode for your app, but you can do that by using network and hold-wake locks.

Whitelisting an Android application programmatically can be done as follows:

boolean isIgnoringBatteryOptimizations = pm.isIgnoringBatteryOptimizations(getPackageName());
if(!isIgnoringBatteryOptimizations){
    Intent intent = new Intent();
    intent.setAction(Settings.ACTION_REQUEST_IGNORE_BATTERY_OPTIMIZATIONS);
    intent.setData(Uri.parse("package:" + getPackageName()));
    startActivityForResult(intent, MY_IGNORE_OPTIMIZATION_REQUEST);
}

The result of starting the activity above can be verfied by the following code:

@Override
protected void onActivityResult(int requestCode, int resultCode, Intent data) {
    if (requestCode == MY_IGNORE_OPTIMIZATION_REQUEST) {
        PowerManager pm = (PowerManager)getSystemService(Context.POWER_SERVICE);
        boolean isIgnoringBatteryOptimizations = pm.isIgnoringBatteryOptimizations(getPackageName());
        if(isIgnoringBatteryOptimizations){
            // Ignoring battery optimization
        }else{
           // Not ignoring battery optimization
        }
    }
}
