Permission 'permissions' warning

  • I have an extension which uses 'chrome.permissions' API.
    When I upload my extension to opera-store, I get the warning "JavaScript file contains forbidden calls. Missing permissions: permissions".
    After adding permission "permissions" in manifest uploading began to pass without warning.
    But then I get an error during loading (unpacked) extension in browser: "Permission 'permissions' is unknown or URL pattern is malformed."
    Is this intended behavior?

  • Hi!

    Sorry for this. If the browser doesn't accept that permission definition then just don't add it and ignore the warning.

    I will file issue report with this problem.

  • Great thanks!

    Then we will delete this permission from our extensions.

    Will we any way be able to track for this problem issue?

  • Sorry, but no. If this is me reporting the problem, you won't get any notification.

    You get notified via email when you report the problem via bug submission system

    I've included your description of the issue.

  • Ok.
    It's a pity that we can't track this issue, but thanks anyway.
