File Payload (Android)

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, unless the payload is modified to delete the file. 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.

For ruggedized Motorola Android devices, the file is placed within the /Enterprise/Usr folder. For Datalogic devices, the file is placed within the /Enterprise folder. For all other Android devices, the file is placed on the external SD card by default. If an external SD card cannot be found, the file is not copied to the device.

This payload has the following options:

Payload Name

The name of the payload.


Determines if the file is being added/updated or deleted from the device.

File Path

The folder on the device where the file will be placed or deleted from. By default, files will be placed in the external SD card folder.


The file that will be delivered to the device. Click the search icon to browse the Central File Store for the file. For more information about the Central File Store, see Using the Central File Store.
