Below is the screenshot from decompiled APK’s manifest file using the original DeepLinking guide’s steps here at Niotron community, It is missing android:exported=“true” attribute as you can see -
Now, I added the highlight line below in DeepLink java code to fix the problem in output AIX file -
Then going forward decompiling the new APK shows android:exported=“true” in manifest file.
Then I was able to successfully upload the .aab on Play Console.
Hope this helps someone who is stuck.
P.S. Sorry I am creating another post but I just joined Kodular and it wasn’t allowing me to add multiple replies to original post and was also not allowing me to upload more useful screenshots. I just had to log this info on the internet.
