Lync Server 2013
 

Topic Last Modified: 2013-02-23

Push notifications, in the form of badges, icons, or alerts, can be sent to an iPhone even when the mobile application is inactive. Push notifications notify a user of events such as a new or missed IM invitation and voice mail. You can enable or disable push notifications for iPhone by using either Lync Server 2013 Control Panel or Lync Server 2013 Management Shell.

  1. From a user account that is assigned to the CsUserAdministrator role or the CsAdministrator role, log on to any computer in your internal deployment.

  2. Open a browser window, and then enter the Admin URL to open the Lync Server Control Panel. For details about the different methods you can use to start Lync Server Control Panel, see Open Lync Server 2013 administrative tools.

  3. In the left navigation bar, click Clients, and then click the Push Notification Configuration navigation button.

  4. On the Push Notification Configuration page, click the site you want to edit, click the Edit menu, and then click Show details.

  5. Click the Enable Apple push notifications checkbox.

  6. Click Commit.

Push notifications to Apple iPhone can be enabled or disabled by using the Set-CsPushNotificationConfiguration cmdlet. You can run this cmdlet either from the Lync Server 2013 Management Shell or from a remote session of Windows PowerShell. For details about using remote Windows PowerShell to connect to Lync Server, see the Lync Server Windows PowerShell blog article "Quick Start: Managing Microsoft Lync Server 2010 Using Remote PowerShell" at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/p/?linkId=255876.

    Set-CsPushNotificationConfiguration -Identity "site:Redmond" -EnableApplePushNotificationService $True
    
    

  • To disable push notifications for iPhone set the value of the EnableApplePushNotificationService property to False ($False). For example:

    Set-CsPushNotificationConfiguration -Identity "site:Redmond" -EnableApplePushNotificationService $False
