Obtaining certificate to receive push notifications for side-loaded LOB apps


  • Hi,

    I have developed an app that is being successfully side-loaded by a client on all their Windows 8 tablets. The app package is signed with a code signing certificate that was bought from Symantec.

    However, we would now like to use WNS to send push notifications to the app, but since the CN in our certificate matches our company name and not the Publisher ID issued by the Store, this is not possible. I asked Symantec if they could issue a certificate using the GUID issued by the Store as a CN, but they say they can only issue to the company name.

    Has anyone else had this problem? How can I obtain a certificate to sign my package that is issued to a GUID by a trusted CA?
