Install Traps App for Android

Use this workflow to install Traps 5.0 for Android.
To install the Traps app, you must Create an Installation Package from the Traps management service and obtain the download link. This link contains the distribution ID required to associate the app with your Traps management service tenant. You can send this link to your end users to have them install the Traps app.
  1. Obtain the link for your Android distribution package and send the link to your end users.
  2. Instruct the end user to perform the following steps:
    1. From the Android endpoint, open the custom download link for the Traps app.
      This opens the Traps app in the Google Play. Do not attempt to open the link in a browser.
    2. Install
      the app and follow the on-screen prompts to complete installation.
    3. Open
      the app when installation completes.
    4. (
      Android 5.1 and later releases
      ) Grant access to Traps to monitor apps.
      If additional permissions are required for your Android version, the Traps app prompts you to
      Permit usage access
      .
      This setting may have a different name depending on your Android version.
    5. Exit the Traps app usage settings and then return to the Traps app.

      Company email address

      The Traps management service uses this information to identify the endpoint.
      If activation fails, Traps displays a notification with a link to manually supply the custom package URL or distribution ID. For example, if your custom package URL is
      https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.paloaltonetworks.trapsa&referrer=123456abcdef
      , you can specify the entire URL, or, you can specify only the distribution ID which is the string following
      referrer=
      in the URL (for example, 123456abcdef). To retry activation, click
      ACTIVATE BY URL
      and supply the required information.
