    Affects: The error is expected to occur for hybrid AppBuilder projects, targeting Cordova 3.7 or above and having more than one verified or custom plugin enabled. So far we have have identified old versions of the following plugins to be affected: Telerik AppFeedback, Push Plugin, Local Notification, Bluetooth Low Energy, Barcode Scanner, Facebook. We will update this list regularly, if we identify other plugins.

    Error: The errors produced from the cloud build can be varying from malformed AndroidManifest file to compile issues with Android Support Library or other libraries references as jar files.

    Reason: With the AppBuilder 3.0 release, we introduced Gradle for Android builds, which provides stricter AndroidManifest validation as well as unified way to declare dependencies. This change, however, is not backwards compatible with older versions of some Cordova plugins.

    Resolution: Update the respective plugins in your project to their latest versions.
    If you have installed the plugin from the Telerik Verified Plugins Marketplace, you can directly update it following the steps in this article.
    If you have included the plugin as a custom Cordova one, you can either remove it and install the new version from the marketplace, or replace it with the archive from this repository.

    If neither of the above helps, please contact our support team for further assistance.
