How to configure a DataWedge profile to target a specific application
All Zebra Android devices that support DataWedge
Resolution / Answer
1: Open DataWedge then click the three dots on the upper Right Hand Side and choose "New profile"
2: Give it a relevant name (e.g. Chrome)
3: Click this new profile and click “Associated Apps”
4: Click the three dots on the upper Right Hand Side and choose “New app/activity”
5: This will bring a list of all applications installed on the terminal. In our example, I am targeting “Chrome”, the end user must choose the appropriate application for their use case. A tip to find the right APP, is that the icon displayed in this list is usually the same as the shortcut from the APP screen.
See example below for “Chrome”
6: Click the APP and then select the “*” activity
7: Click the back arrow repeatedly to exit DataWedge.
Now when scanning into Chrome the barcode data will be populated.
Note: If further barcode formatting (Basic/Advanced) is desired in this application , ensure that the changes made are within this new profile.
