  • What are you trying to accomplish?  You shouldn't need your own certificate when using Push Notifications through Azure Mobile Services.  Please see the Push Notification walkthrough for how to use push notifications with Windows Azure Mobile Services.

  • I want send more than 500 messages each day. If I correctly understand need buy and upload certificate to marketplace http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/windowsphone/develop/ff941099(v=vs.105).aspx

  • I don't think Mobile Services supports this right now. The documentation (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windowsazure/jj591526.aspx) says the certificate is not required for MPNS, but since it can't be configured in the portal, I think it means it is also not possible right now

  • Sorry, but your url is broken.
    I read this tutorial http://www.windowsazure.com/en-us/develop/mobile/tutorials/get-started-with-push-wp8/?fb=ru-ru
    Certificate is not required for MPNS, yes, you are right, but if we use this we have limit per 500 msg.
    About this you can read here http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/windowsphone/develop/ff941099(v=vs.105).aspx

    I'll be grateful for the correct answer.

  • Sorry, there was an extra ) at the end of the link. It should have been: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windowsazure/jj591526.aspx

    In any case, even though MPNS only allows up to 500 messages per device per day, there is currently no way to specify or use your certificate from Mobile Services, so you are stuck with that limitation for now.

  • In that case you will need to use Push Notifications outside of Windows Azure Mobile Services.  And for information on how to request the certificate check out this article on No-quota push notifications
