Requesting Permissions at Run Time Ionic

Issue

In Android Marshmallow users grant permissons to apps while the app is runing,not when they install the app so how to check and grant Permissons at Run-Time in ionic ?

Solution

You can use cordova-diagnostic-plugin to check and request Android runtime permissions:

Check a permission:

cordova.plugins.diagnostic.getPermissionAuthorizationStatus(function(status){
    switch(status){
        case cordova.plugins.diagnostic.runtimePermissionStatus.GRANTED:
            console.log("Permission granted to use the camera");
            break;
        case cordova.plugins.diagnostic.runtimePermissionStatus.NOT_REQUESTED:
            console.log("Permission to use the camera has not been requested yet");
            break;
        case cordova.plugins.diagnostic.runtimePermissionStatus.DENIED:
            console.log("Permission denied to use the camera - ask again?");
            break;
        case cordova.plugins.diagnostic.runtimePermissionStatus.DENIED_ALWAYS:
            console.log("Permission permanently denied to use the camera - guess we won't be using it then!");
            break;
    }
}, function(error){
    console.error("The following error occurred: "+error);
}, cordova.plugins.diagnostic.runtimePermission.CAMERA);

Request a permission:

cordova.plugins.diagnostic.requestRuntimePermission(function(status){
    switch(status){
        case cordova.plugins.diagnostic.runtimePermissionStatus.GRANTED:
            console.log("Permission granted to use the camera");
            break;
        case cordova.plugins.diagnostic.runtimePermissionStatus.NOT_REQUESTED:
            console.log("Permission to use the camera has not been requested yet");
            break;
        case cordova.plugins.diagnostic.runtimePermissionStatus.DENIED:
            console.log("Permission denied to use the camera - ask again?");
            break;
        case cordova.plugins.diagnostic.runtimePermissionStatus.DENIED_ALWAYS:
            console.log("Permission permanently denied to use the camera - guess we won't be using it then!");
            break;
    }
}, function(error){
    console.error("The following error occurred: "+error);
}, cordova.plugins.diagnostic.runtimePermission.CAMERA);
