Vive Business Device Management System Upload from Unity using OpenXR

Lt Cheeseburger

Recommended Posts

I'm working on a Focus 3 application with Unity and using OpenXR. Tracking and input works as expected once I've built to device.

I now want to upload the application to the Vive Business Device Management System portal. However when uploading the apk, it appears to be invalid. Various fields are marked in red including

  • HMD-Capability
  • Controller-Capability
  • Number of Controllers.

I'm wondering what steps I need to make it valid.

  • The only package I'm using from the Vive Registry is Vive Wave OpenXR Plugin - Android. Is there any other packages I need?
  • I'm assuming the project needs a Android Manifest file to meet the requirements. Is there a wizard inside a Vive Wave SDK to set this up or an example of what this should look like?

I am having the same issue, and adding or appending an android manifest is a non-starter for us. The entire purpose of OpenXR is to be truly portable to multiple device types. Vive needs to change their MDM store acceptance criteria or their OpenXR package to accommodate. Our developers can not be nitpicking with manifest lines across device types.

Hmm, I did post a response but it seems that my posts are hidden for some reason. Either because attachments or screenshots need to be verified first.

But to recap what I did, I found so far that I just needed a custom Manifest file. This can be checked in Publishing settings and adds An Android Manifest file to Plugins folder. 

Below is what worked for me.


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
        <activity android:name="com.unity3d.player.UnityPlayerActivity"
              <action android:name="android.intent.action.MAIN" />
              <category android:name="android.intent.category.LAUNCHER" />
              <category android:name="com.htc.intent.category.VRAPP" />
            <meta-data android:name="unityplayer.UnityActivity" android:value="true" />
          <meta-data android:name="com.htc.vr.content.NumDoFHmd" android:value="6DoF"/>
          <meta-data android:name="com.htc.vr.content.NumDoFController" android:value="6DoF"/>
          <meta-data android:name="com.htc.vr.content.NumController" android:value="2"/>
