As soon as I updated the target SDK to 30+ (Android R or later), a lint warning
Missing PendingIntent mutability flag appeared on my
PendingIntent.FLAG_UPDATE_CURRENT flag when I want to define
How should I handle this lint with no effect on the app functionality?
You can set your pending intent as
val updatedPendingIntent = PendingIntent.getActivity( applicationContext, NOTIFICATION_REQUEST_CODE, updatedIntent, PendingIntent.FLAG_IMMUTABLE or PendingIntent.FLAG_UPDATE_CURRENT // setting the mutability flag )
According to the docs here: https://developer.android.com/about/versions/12/behavior-changes-12#pending-intent-mutability
Strongly consider using FLAG_IMMUTABLE, only use FLAG_MUTABLE if
some functionality depends on the PendingIntent being mutable, e.g. if
it needs to be used with inline replies or bubbles.
Choose your flag accordingly.
