BBCustomInterceptor Class Reference

Support for OkHttp. More...

Inherits Interceptor.


This class provides support for the OkHttp HTTP framework, by means of an Interceptor that can be added when creating an OkHttpClient object. The Interceptor directs HTTP requests through the BlackBerry Dynamics secure communications system.

BBCustomInterceptor bbCustomInterceptor = new BBCustomInterceptor();
OkHttpClient httpClient = new OkHttpClient().newBuilder()
.authenticator(myAuthenticator) // optional Authenticator
// if Authenticator support is required
val request = Request.Builder().url(urlStr).build()
try (Response response = httpClient.newCall(request).execute()) {
return response.body().string();

In order to use OkHttp, it is necessary to include it as a dependency, thus:

dependencies {
implementation "com.squareup.okhttp3:okhttp:4.9.1"
implementation 'com.squareup.okio:okio:2.9.0'

Please note the following:

  1. Cryptographic operations in third party Authenticator implementations will not be subject to BlackBerry Dynamics FIPS policy.
  2. BBCustomInterceptor is not suitable for use as a Network Interceptor. That is, it should only be added to the OkHttpClient object via the addInterceptor() call.
  3. Proxy authentication is supported for proxies configured via the UEM. See section on 'Sending BlackBerry Dynamics app data through an HTTP proxy' in the BlackBerry UEM administration guide. Note that the OkHttpClient proxy() call is not supported.
