About this task

You can associate a push message with a standard notification.

Procedure

  1. Navigate to System Notification > Create Push Notification.
  2. Fill out the notification form as necessary (see Create an email notification for descriptions of the form fields.
  3. Click the What it will contain tab.
  4. Next to Push Messages, click the lock icon and select a push message.
  5. If you want this notification to be sent only as a push notification and not as any other type of notification, select Push Message Only.
  6. Click Submit.

    If the notification fails, the user is not notified. If the message fails to send because it exceeds the maximum payload, the instance logs the failure in the System Log.
