A notification is a message that displays outside the contextual UI to provide the user with critical reminders or other information from a particular app on the mobile devices. Users can tap the notifications to open the app or take a predefined action directly from the notification. Push notifications for in-house applications allow users in your organization to receive important notification messages on their compatible mobile devices.
How the Defender Push Notification Works
The pushnotification feature is supported and configurable on both Android (version 8 or later) and iOS (iOS 10 or later) devices. The following sections describe the key Admin and User actions for using push notifications.
An Admin programs the new Android or iOS tokens which have the Push Notification feature enabled by default. For more information about the wizard steps and options, see Defender Token Programming Wizard reference
The admin marks the relevant Defender security token policy to enable the push notification feature for users. For more information, see Managing Defender Security Policies..
Users activate the newly created token from the 6.1.0 release.
The pushnotification is triggered when users initiate the login authentication process to Defender and type the "push" (case insensitive, without quotes) keyword in the token field. The users receive the respective notification on their compatible devices as defined during the configuration of the security token.
The notification seeks a user response in form of Approve or Deny for access to the resources. Based on the user's response, the respective action takes place and the notification cycle completes.
