Manage Apple push certificates

Apple uses Push Notification Certificates to maintain persistent communication between Apple Devices. You must add push certificates before you can enroll and manage devices in Device Management for Apple (DMA).

Certificates are available from the Apple Push Certificates portal and are valid for one year. To maintain service continuity, the certificate must be renewed before the expiration date.

DMA uses a multi-tenancy approach that enables you to add push certificates for your clients, so their devices enroll under their certificates rather than your account default certificate. Using a client push certificate, you can set a custom enrollment policy for a client and change their Apple relationship from you to the client.

To manage your push certificates, you can:

To open the Push Certificates dialog:

  1. In the left-hand navigation menu, click ConfigurationDevice Management for Apple to view the Dashboard.

  2. Click Push Certificates tab.
