Push Notification Service sending message non-ASCII characters in JavaScript SDK

0 votes
1. It is possible to send push message with non-ASCII characters (e.g. Chinese characters "你好") in JavaScript SDK?

I tried to do so with:


pushNotificationService.sendPushMessageToAll("你好", ...) but the iOS client received "??" instead of "你好"。


2. Is is possible to add application key in JavaScript SDK? e.g:


var m = { "alert" : "New version is available", "downloadUrl" : "http://some.url.to.open" }

pushNotificationService.sendPushMessageToAll(m, ...)


So in the iOS client I can get the downloadUrl and open it for user.

Yes you can send it easily by setting dataEncoding true in meta headers. Please find the below code snippet and let me know if it helps:


var userName = "Nick",

message  = "Message which you have to send",

result ;  


var pushNotificationService  = new App42Push();

var otherMetaHeaders={dataEncoding:true}; // For Non-English Character


pushNotificationService.sendPushMessageToUser( userName,message, {  

            success: function(object) 


                        var pushNotification = JSON.parse(object);  

                        result = pushNotification.app42.response.push;

                        console.log("UserName is : " + result.getUserName());

                        console.log("Message is : " + result.message)

                        console.log("Expiry is : " + result.expiry)      


            error: function(error) {
