Camera Permission

If you want to use the Document Scanner, declare the following permission in your AndroidManifest.xml

<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.CAMERA"/>
<uses-feature android:name=""/>

Runtime permission for camera is handled automatically by the Docutain SDK.

<application android:largeHeap="true" ...>
