Changing ethernet settings (static IP) using MX profile, invoke from Android app

Tags: 

We know it is possible to pass an xml file (StageNow XML format) to the mxconfig command using Soti MobiControl (https://www.soti.net/mc/help/v14.0/en/scriptcmds/reference/androidplus.html). We want to know if there is a way to pass this xml file from within an Android Application in a more dynamic fashion?

The goal is to change the network settings for ethernet interface (https://techdocs.zebra.com/mx/ethernetmgr/) to let the device use a static IP. The correct values for the IP, gateway, subnet mask etc will be provided by the application The device should therefore construct the XML and invoke a command that will read that file and apply it.

If there is another way to achieve this outside mxconfig that would also be great.

Yes, this is possible. 

Yes, this is possible.  Please see https://techdocs.zebra.com/emdk-for-android/8-0/samples/wifi/ which does something very similar with the WiFi settings.
