XMPP Messages


Request for Register

<iq from="push-distributer@example.org/device" to="up.chat.sum7.eu" type="set" id="register-id">
  <register xmlns='unifiedpush.org'>


on success:

<iq from="push-distributer@example.org/device" to="up.chat.sum7.eu" type="result" id="register-id">
  <register xmlns='unifiedpush.org'>

on failure:

<iq from="push-distributer@example.org/device" to="up.chat.sum7.eu" type="error" id="register-id">
  <register xmlns='unifiedpush.org'>
    <error>a reason of failure</error>




For the push notification it-self the origin <message/> is used with following Position of Token and Content.

<message from="up.chat.sum7.eu" to="push-distributer@example.org/device" id="message-id">
  <body>Here is the Notification content</body>

The message sender from should be validated from distributor, for not receiving invalid or manipulated push Messages.


We are using over the complete system three kind of tokens:

  • Endpoint Token which is part of the Endpoint and is for using between Gateway and Application-Server
  • Public Token which is used between Gateway and Distributor
  • App Token which is used between Distributor and Application
