Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-9019) BackupWebStorage has no effect
Date Thu, 18 Jun 2015 00:41:00 GMT


Shazron Abdullah commented on CB-9019:

Hmm. Regardless of the setting, the app will create a "Backups" folder in the "Documents"
folder and set it to be excluded from iCloud backup.
Even with this exclusion, the app will appear in the Show All Apps section. 

The BackupWebStorage setting appears to work normally -- that is, "none" will not copy your
localStorage/webStorage to that Backups folder, "local", will copy it but it is set for exclusion
in iCloud, and "cloud" will copy it but it will not set the exclusion bit for the "Backups"

The feature is working as expected, but it may not be apparent in the iCloud "Manage Storage"
section for the device.

Not sure the workaround yet.

> Setting the BackupWebStorage preference seems to have no effect.
> 1. Set BackupWebStorage in config.xml to local or none.
> 2. Build, install, and launch app.
> 3. On iOS device, open Settings -> iCloud -> Storage -> Manage Storage ->
my_device_name -> Show All Apps
> Expected: app should not appear since no data should be in storage.
> Observed: app appears in iCloud storage regardless of BackupWebStorage setting.
