Creating an Apple Push Certificate


Steps for creating an Apple push certificate

The Apple Push Certificate can be created in two ways: you can either go to the System > Infrastructure diagram and click on the Apple Push Notification Service icon, or you can go to the Enroll device view, click on the iOS/macOS button and create the push certificate in the enrollment wizard.

NOTE! We recommend using an existing company Apple ID, or creating a new Apple ID for general use within the company, when creating your Apple Push Certificate. This way, individual accounts are not tied to the company's Miradore site, and renewal of the Push Certificates are much easier. It is also highly recommended that this Apple ID is saved somewhere that administrators can easily access it. The Push Certificates can only be renewed with the same Apple ID which was used to create the certificate.
