Response Elements

The following element is returned by the service.

Attributes.entry.N.key (key)
Attributesentry.N.value (value)

Attributes include the following:

  • CustomUserData -- arbitrary user data to associate with the endpoint. Amazon SNS does not use this data. The data must be in UTF-8 format and less than 2KB.

  • Enabled -- flag that enables/disables delivery to the endpoint. Amazon SNS will set this to false when a notification service indicates to Amazon SNS that the endpoint is invalid. Users can set it back to true, typically after updating Token.

  • Token -- device token, also referred to as a registration id, for an app and mobile device. This is returned from the notification service when an app and mobile device are registered with the notification service.
