Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-13005) config.xml preference: Implement Android equivalent to iOS' `BackupWebStorage`
Date Mon, 10 Jul 2017 19:36:00 GMT


Jan Piotrowski commented on CB-13005:

It might be that the current preference also works for Android (I found some forum posts saying
this) - then the docs should be updated to include Android for that preference.

> For iOS users can set a `BackupWebStorage` preference in `config.xml` to control the
cloud backup of web storage data:
> > Set to cloud to allow web storage data to backup via iCloud. Set to local to allow

> > only local backups via iTunes sync. Set to none prevent web storage backups.
> For Android this also possible, but a lot more complicated:
> {code}
> <platform name="android">
>     <edit-config file="AndroidManifest.xml" 
>                  target="/manifest/application" 
>                  mode="merge">
>         <application android:allowBackup="false"/>
>     </edit-config>
> </platform>
> {code}
> It would make sense to enable `BackupWebStorage` for Android as well or implement an
equivalent preference config value.
