How to Integrate the Device Data Collector into Android Applications using the Library JAR

Provide native support for your Kount solution by integrating the Kount SDK into your Android application. This allows you to use Kount services without having to create API calls. Software for this integration can be found in the GitHub repository.

Integrating Android Library JAR

  1. Download the latest SDK from GitHub, and then extract the contents of the file.
  2. In Android Studio, copy the JAR file extracted from the SDK into the libs folder “Project Path”\app\libs of your application.
  3. In the Project viewer, right-click the JAR, and then click Add as library.
  4. In the Gradle file for your app, add the following dependencies:
        dependencies {
              implementation ''
              implementation ''           
              implementation group: '', name: 'volley', version: '1.2.1'
              implementation 'org.jetbrains.kotlin:kotlin-stdlib-jdk7:1.3.72'
              implementation ""
    Note: The Kotlin library is only necessary if your application is written in Java. If your application uses Support libraries, then it must be migrated to Android X libraries. Refer to Migrate for Android X for steps on migrating to Android X libraries.

    If you get an error like "unable to resolve dependency for compilepath: :app@debug/compileclasspath: Could not resolve," check that the source and target compatibility are set by adding the following lines of code in your application’s ​build.gradle​​:
        android {
        // Configure only for each module that uses Java 8
        // language features (either in its source code or
        // through dependencies).
        compileOptions {
            sourceCompatibility = JavaVersion.VERSION_1_8
            targetCompatibility = JavaVersion.VERSION_1_8
        // For Kotlin projects
        kotlinOptions {
            jvmTarget = "1.8"
  5. Once you have integrated the Library JAR, proceed to step two to invoke the Device Data Collector.
