.NET Framework 4.5
Creates a platform application object for one of the supported push notification services, such as APNS and GCM, to which devices and mobile apps may register. You must specify PlatformPrincipal and PlatformCredential attributes when using the CreatePlatformApplication action. The PlatformPrincipal is received from the notification service. For APNS/APNS_SANDBOX, PlatformPrincipal is "SSL certificate". For GCM, PlatformPrincipal is not applicable. For ADM, PlatformPrincipal is "client id". The PlatformCredential is also received from the notification service. For APNS/APNS_SANDBOX, PlatformCredential is "private key". For GCM, PlatformCredential is "API key". For ADM, PlatformCredential is "client secret". The PlatformApplicationArn that is returned when using CreatePlatformApplication is then used as an attribute for the CreatePlatformEndpoint action. For more information, see Using Amazon SNS Mobile Push Notifications.
