Does ArcGISDownloadRequest require Admin credentials? Really?

I set up a Level 1 user that is a viewer.


The following code failed if I used those credentials in code or when prompted.

It only worked with admin credentials.


The same url will download immediately, no delays, no prompt, no authentication, if I paste it directly into a browser. It seems inconsistent that it would need need admin credentials.


Since posting this, I tried it with a regular DownloadManager.Request. It worked, with less code and no authentication Which makes sense if it loaded in a browser. Maybe that is the solution.


Preplanned Workflow is broken: BUG-000114625, which is why I don't use it.

private void
downloadthroughDownloadManager() {

    String url = "";

    ListenableFuture<ArcGISDownloadRequest> urlfuture = ArcGISDownloadRequest.createInstanceAsync(url);//, new UserCredential("...","..."));

    urlfuture.addDoneListener(new Runnable() {
        public void run() {
            if(urlfuture.isDone()) {
                try {
                    Date time = Calendar.getInstance().getTime();
                    ArcGISDownloadRequest request = urlfuture.get();

                    DownloadManager manager = (DownloadManager)getSystemService(Context.DOWNLOAD_SERVICE);
                    request.setDestinationInExternalFilesDir(getBaseContext(),null,"downloads/cntr" + time.getTime() + ".vtpk");
                    request.setDescription("Downloading map portion");
                    request.setTitle("BackCountry World");
                } catch (InterruptedException e) {
                } catch (ExecutionException e) {

                Log.e(TAG,"CreateDownloadRequest Failed");
