Specifying time restrictions for push delivery

You can define a window of time during which pushed content must be delivered to the recipient BlackBerry devices.

You can set two time stamps to specify time restrictions:

  • The Deliver-Before time stamp, which specifies the date and time by which the push request must be delivered to the device. If the BlackBerry MDS Connection Service is unable to deliver a push request to a recipient before the specified time, the push request is considered unsuccessful for the affected devices.
  • The Deliver-After time stamp, which specifies the date and time before which the push request cannot deliver.

If the BlackBerry MDS Connection Service is unable to deliver a push request to a recipient before or after the times specified by using these time stamps, the push request is considered unsuccessful for the affected devices.

Using the PAP push format

When you use the PAP push format, you need to define one or both of the deliver-before-timestamp and the deliver-after-timestamp attribute for the <push-message> element of the control entity.

Using the BlackBerry push format

When you use the BlackBerry push format, you need to include the X-Rim-Push-Deliver-Before and X-Rim-Push-Deliver-After header in the request.
