Notification options in Mobile Admin

The Dashboard is only available for the Android, BlackBerry and Apple iOS platforms. The Mobile Admin Server pushes notifications to the devices.

Blackberry

Configure Mobile Admin Server to send notifications to the BlackBerry devices.

  1. Log into Mobile Admin.
  2. Go to Configuration > Options > Dashboard Options.
  3. In the BES Hostname field, enter the URL to the BES MDS-Connection Service web page.

    This is typically http://hostname:8080.

  4. You can use the hostname or IP address.

    The hostname or IP address must be resolvable by the Mobile Admin Server operating system.

Apple

Ensure that Mobile Admin Server can send notifications to the iPhone and iPad devices over ports 2197 and 2198 across the Internet. No configuration is required within Mobile Admin. However, port access to the Internet may need to be addressed in some networks.

Android

Ensure that Mobile Admin Server can send notifications to Android devices over port 2199 across the Internet. No configuration is required within Mobile Admin, but port access to the Internet may need to be addressed in some networks.

  1. Locate the option to select the update interval for notifications.
  2. Select the desired update interval and click Save.

    The Mobile Admin Server is now set to send notifications to devices.

Before you can access the dashboard, a feed, or a set of feeds, must be configured by a user. The Dashboard will then display status and alert information for the selected feeds.

Each Mobile Admin user has an individual Dashboard view. For information about the client side setup of the dashboard, see the Mobile Admin Client Installation and Usage Guide.
