File Payload

A file payload allows you to push files to Android devices for access by applications on the device. If the payload's file is deleted from the device while the payload is still applied, it is restored the next time the device syncs with Avalanche. Multiple file payloads can be applied to a profile. When files are deployed to an Android device, they will also display on that device's Device Details screen as device properties.
