[Solved] Android Error: java.lang.IllegalStateException: Not allowed to start service Intent

Android error: java.lang.illegalstateexception: not allowed to start service intent

Error resolution 12

Today’s test threw me a crash message:

Caused by: java.lang.IllegalStateException: Not allowed to start service Intent { cmp=xxx }: app is in background uid UidRecord{xxx u0a136 CEM idle procs:1 seq(0,0,0)}

Can it be hard for me
once you see it, you can see that it’s a background service startup error. Just put the service in the foreground, easy

In fact, Google took a look
The problem is that Android 8.0 does not allow the creation of background services.


Method 1:

The simplest way is to directly open the front desk service
set the service to the front desk in oncreate of your service class

       startForeground(1, new Notification()); 

Of course, this method will show what is running on the status bar of Android 5.0 and 6.0 phones please refer to the following method

Method 2:

The method from here

first modify the service configuration in your manifest file

<service android:name=".YourService"

Then change the modification inheritance of your service class to extensions jobintentservice
and add the following code

    public static final int JOB_ID = 1;

    public static void enqueueWork(Context context, Intent work) {
        enqueueWork(context, YourService.class, JOB_ID, work);

    protected void onHandleWork(@NonNull Intent intent) {
        // your code

The startup service is modified as follows.

YourService.enqueueWork(context, new Intent());

However, I tested that the content in onstartcommand() does not execute. No reason has been found
I hope you can help me with the analysis.

It’s over
