Android – Automatically accept all SDK licences


Since gradle android plugins 2.2-alpha4:

Gradle will attempt to download missing SDK packages that a project
depends on

Which is amazingly cool and was know to be a JakeWharton project.

But, to download the SDK library you need to: accept the license agreements or gradle tells you:

You have not accepted the license agreements of the following SDK
components: [Android SDK Build-Tools 24, Android SDK Platform 24].
Before building your project, you need to accept the license
agreements and complete the installation of the missing components
using the Android Studio SDK Manager. Alternatively, to learn how to
transfer the license agreements from one workstation to another, go to

And this is a problem because I would love to install all sdk dependencies while doing a gradle build.

I am looking for a solution to automatically accept all licenses. Maybe a gradle script ?
Do you have any ideas ?

Best Solution

AndroidSDK can finally accept licenses.

Go to Android\sdk\tools\bin

yes | sdkmanager --licenses


as pointed out in the comments by @MoOx, on macOS, you can do

yes | sudo ~/Library/Android/sdk/tools/bin/sdkmanager --licenses

as pointed out in the comments by @pho, @mikebridge and @ Noitidart on Windows, you can do

cmd.exe /C"%ANDROID_HOME%\tools\bin\sdkmanager.bat --licenses"

be sure to install java before
