Unity Library Manifest

A Unity Library Manifest is the main Unity manifest and contains information about the Unity Player and its activity. Unity uses a default Unity Library Manifest during the build process to generate the final Android App Manifest for the application. You can override this with your own manifest file to have more control over the Android App Manifest that Unity generates. For more information, see Override an Android App Manifest.
