access log files on Android device

Post by zivshapirawork » Mon Apr 20, 2015 7:05 am

Hi

Is it possible to access log files that are created by an app through the Ranorex user code? (android-based mobile device). The files are under /storage/sdcard0/

thanks

Hello zivshapirawork,

Unforutnately, it's not possible to access files from your mobile device, but you could e.g., use the Android Debug Bridge. Please find further information here:

Thanks Robert

This looks interesting, I will try it out for writing file to the device. For those interested, in order to read log files, I used a file-explorer type of app (apk), instrumented it and reached the files content via that app and a Ranorex recording.
