Adjust adaptive brightness level

I have a Google Pixel with Android v7.1.1. With AutoTools, I can read the adaptive brightness level (it's screen_brightness_auto_adj). It will range anywhere from 0.0 (slider all the way to the left) to 100.0 (slider all the way to the right). But if I try doing a custom setting to set it, I get the "Can't change setting on this device. You cannot change private secure settings." I've done the ADB command to grant AutoTools the WRITE_SECURE_SETTINGS permission, but still can't get it to work. It would be great to have a way to set this in AutoTools.

Thanks Joao. Unfortunately root won't help me but I do appreciate your response. All of your apps are great addons to Tasker. Hopefully a future Android version will allow this to be adjusted without the need for root.

for some reason this won't work without root. I've now added it to the AutoTools Root Add-on: https://play.google.com/apps/testing/com.joaomgcd.autotoolsroot

Hope this helps
