i am installing 2 applications via appium
the first is installed via the app capability
the second installed via the otherApps capability

does the AndroidMobileCapabilityType.AUTO_GRANT_PERMISSIONS,= true
applies to both applications ?

thank you

yes, the capability is applied to all apps

I have the following scenario :
i am launching the first app (installed via app cap)
then use appium driver to push file into location
then do start activity to start the second app (installed via otherApps)

my second app code tries to access the file when loaded
but it gets permission denied exception

Do you use the most recent server version? Do you have logs?
