Release Notes - May 4th, 2018

We have released the following improvements to the Clover Sandbox environments:



Android 5.1 (API level 22) onwards, apps with different signatures cannot define the same permission.

On Clover Station (2018) and Clover Flex, this Android update creates an issue where if two differently-signed apps define the same POP_CASH_DRAWER permission, the second app cannot be installed successfully.

To address this issue, we are introducing the POP_CASH_DRAWER_NEW permission in the Clover engine app. To use this new permission in your app, simply remove the old POP_CASH_DRAWER permission from your app's AndroidManifest.xml file and replace it with:

<uses-permission android="clover.permission.POP_CASH_DRAWER_NEW"/>

Once you make your changes:

  1. Test your changes in your Clover Sandbox environment.
  2. Submit your new APK for approval to be used in the production environment.
  3. Do not set your new APK version as default before the updated Clover engine app is available for merchants.


We will share another announcement when the updated Clover engine app is available for merchants.

Please test these changes in your Clover Sandbox environments. For questions and feedback, please use
