Most automation test tools can typically be used in one of two modes: emulator mode and manual mode (specific terms may vary according to the testing tool). If you use the automation test tool in emulator mode instead of manual mode, the Appdome-secured application will not run on the device. This is expected because Appdome ONEShield protects apps from running on emulators/simulators. Instead, you should run the automation test tool in manual mode.
If you see a message such as: Application has violated security policies and it will be shut down, this means that: (1) techniques such as emulators, tampering, or reverse engineering are present, and (2) the Fusion Set does not contain Appdome Threat-Events. This is expected because Appdome ONEShield protects against those conditions. You can either remove the triggering condition or use Appdome Threat Events if applicable.
