Encrypt text using intent


New member
I've the OpenkeyChain app installed with some certificates. App to crypt or decrypt texts or files with these SSL certificates.

I try to send it an intent from MD to encrypt a text and hope the app returns me the encrypted text but the only thing the intent do is to open that app.

Intents description: https://github.com/open-keychain/open-keychain/wiki/Intents

My try:
Which open the app and don't do anything else:
Could you help me? Is it possible to do what I want and how?

I'm not a MD newbe but definitely not good with intents.

The page you linked to states the following

All Intents require user interaction, e.g. to finally encrypt the user needs to press the "Encrypt" button.

However, it is not possible to make it locked and pass the text to the application.
I've searched and found no information and I'm stuck.
