How to make a custom keyboard the default keyboard on a Zebra TC56


Does anyone know what the adb intent command is  to an Zebra T56 running Android Nougat 7.1.2 to change the default keyboard from Google keyboard (Gboard) to a 3rd party keyboard.

App Name : Retriever Keyboard

3rd Party Keyboard ID Name: "com.retriever.cust.retrieverkeyboard/com.retrievercommunications.cust.retrieverkeyboard.RetrieverAndroidKeyboard"

Have managed to successfully do this via ADB shell commands by using the below command but have been advised from the SOTI to use a ADB intent command.

ime set com.retriever.cust.retrieverkeyboard/com.retrievercommunications.cust.retrieverkeyboard.RetrieverAndroidKeyboard

Hi, I'm not sure about using

Hi, I'm not sure about using an intent but you can use MX to change the default keyboard, specifically the UI Manager's SetDefaultInputMethod (UI Manager - Zebra Technologies Techdocs ).  You can see an example towards the bottom of that link titled "Set Enterprise Keyboard as the Default Input Method"
