Authenticated push notifications without publishing the App to the Windows Phone Store RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are currently developing a Windows Phone 8 application that won't be published to the Windows Phone Store but will be distributed through our Company Portal (Windows Intune).

    Our team would like to add Push Notifications using MPNS (Microsoft Push Notification Service) but we are aware that, without submitting the app to the Windows Phone Store, we would be forced to use unauthenticated push notifications that are throttled to something like 500 notifications\day per subscription.

    We are evaluating the idea to try a service like Azure Notification hub but It's hard to find some clear documentation about how to set up authenticated push notifications with Notification Hub and even more important, if Notification Hub has the same policy that force to submit the mobile application to the Store.

    So, the questions are:

    1. In order to use unthrottled authenticated push notifications, do you know if Notification Hub requires the app submission to the Windows Phone Store?
    2. Do you know where is the documentation about setting authenticated push notifications with Notification Hub?
    3. Do you know any other valid way to get no-quota push notifications?

    Asked here on Stackoverflow.

  • Any update about this question?

    We are getting closer to the release date and we still have no clue on how to set authenticated push notifications for a company app using Notification Hub .

    Thanks
