Im unable to access "Configure heap size" URL with my credentials. Its throwing access denied 403 error. What I need to do to access that ?

The "Configure heap size" section is a section that is visible to OEMs. It describes how to configure the overall size of the Brew heap for the device. If you work for a licensed OEM, please send me a private message here with your username and the name of the company you work for and I will check out your access problems.
