Nokia account

Notification ID

A MIDlet identifier that a service can use to determine the recipient of a notification. The Notification ID is unique to the app, user and device. NID is typically between 100 and 200 bytes in length, but it may be longer in some cases and you should reserve at least 512B for storing it.

Notification Enabler

Component running on the device and responsible for establishing an active connection to the Notification Server. A single Notification Enabler can handle multiple MIDlets.

Payload

Notification content for the MIDlet. Maximum size is 1.5 kB

Production environment

When a notification service is tested and ready for deployment, it can be moved to the production environment. You can manage your production environment related access credentials with the Developer Console.

Chinese production environment

When a notification service targeted for people living in China is tested and ready for deployment, it can be moved to the Chinese production environment. You can manage your Chinese production environment related access credentials with the Developer Console.

Sandbox environment

Development environment where notification services and MIDlets can be developed and executed. In the sandbox environment, a service can send notifications to MIDlets as if in a production environment. You can manage your sandbox environment related access credentials with the Developer Console.

Service Account

The Service ID and Service Secret are used when the service is authenticated against the Notification infrastructure.

Note:

The Application ID is constructed from the Service ID.

Service ID

A unique identifier for the service; the Service ID can be selected by the developer.

The default service ID (example.com) does not have any Service Secret.

To display the Service Secret, in the Push Notification pane, for a custom Service ID: In the Nokia Developer Console, click My services tab, and then click the custom service link from the List of your services pane.
