Android BasicManagedProfile Sample

This sample demonstrates basic functionalities of Managed Profile API introduced in Android 5.0 Lollipop. You can set up this app as a profile owner, and use this app to enable/disable apps in the newly created managed profile. You can also set restrictions to some apps, enable/disable Intent forwarding between profiles, and wipe out all the data associated with the profile.


As of Android 5.0, DevicePolicyManager introduces new features to support managed profile.

To set up this app as a profile owner, you need to encrypt your device (you are prompted to do if you haven't). This doesn't wipe out the device, but be aware that you can set up only one managed profile at a time.

isProfileOwnerApp can be used to determine if a particular package is registered as the profile owner for the current user. You can initiate the provisioning flow of a managed profile with Intent of ACTION_PROVISION_MANAGED_PROFILE.

You have to implement a class extending DeviceAdminReceiver to receive the result of the provisioning flow. Use setProfileEnabled to enable the newly created profile, and your app is now set up as a profile owner.

This activity is started after the provisioning is complete in {@link BasicDeviceAdminReceiver}.


Handles events related to managed profile.

Called on the new profile when managed profile provisioning has completed. Managed profile provisioning is the process of setting up the device so that it has a separate profile which is managed by the mobile device management(mdm) application that triggered the provisioning. Note that the managed profile is not fully visible until it is enabled.

Generates a {@link ComponentName} that is used throughout the app. @return a {@link ComponentName}
