[UWP] Notification is kiosk mode (assigned access) RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have an app that runs in kiosk mode (assigned access) and I just realized it does not receive and process push notifications.
    I'm using push notifications from azure to let the kiosk know when to perform a refresh.
    It appears this doesn't seem to work while under assigned access, I'm wondering if it's ONLY toast notifications that don't work, or raw notifications as well. At the moment I just receive a toast and then don't display it, and process it manually.
    Will I have a better time using a raw notifications? Will it work for my scenario?

  • Hi,

    This is excepted behavior that UWP apps in assigned access mode won't see any app notifications. You could refer this document:https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-hardware/drivers/partnerapps/create-a-kiosk-app-for-assigned-access. Please see description of term for the assigned access.

  • Not exactly, I see that we can not receive toasts under kiosk mode.
    But will a raw notification work?

    My kiosk app needs to be updated based on a push notification but does not need to show a toast.

    No,They also won't see any app notifications.

    You could try to implement this by other ways. You might use background task or you could create socket and just tell the app what to do via the TCP communication.
