Push notification certificates
To secure push notifications, supply your organization’s Apple ID and password. Don’t use a personal Apple ID (for example, one that’s already associated with the App Store or Apple’s Developer Program).
Before you enable push notification
To enable secure push notifications, you need an encryption certificate. Apple can issue a certificate to someone with a known identity, such as an Apple ID. The Server app uses this certificate signed by Apple to encrypt push notifications from the server to any client that needs a notification.
This is the user name registered with Apple. Use an Apple ID associated with your organization, and not a personal Apple ID.
This is the password associated with the Apple ID, not the administrator password for the server.
