Create push initiators for push applications
Push initiators specify which server-side push applications are authenticated and allowed to send push requests to applications on BlackBerry® devices. For push initiators to work, you must have push authentication turned on for the BlackBerry MDS Connection Service. You can configure several server-side push applications to use the same push initiator (that is, to use the same authorization password) if your development environment allows it. Make sure that the authorization HTTP header in push requests from server-side push applications matches the push principal name and password that you specify for the push initiator.
- In the BlackBerry Manager, in the left pane, click BlackBerry Domain.
- On the Global tab, click Edit Properties.
- In the left pane, click Access Control.
- Double-click Push Initiators.
- Click New.
- Double-click Push Principal Name.
- Type the name of the server-side application that you want to allow to send push requests to BlackBerry devices.
- Double-click Credentials.
- Type the password for the server-side push application.
- Click OK.
Create a push initiator for each server-side push application that you want to allow to send push requests to BlackBerry devices. To specify which users can receive push requests from authenticated push applications, turn on push authorization, and then create push rules.
