SYNC gateway configuration is required only if you need to send notification over the same protocol as your synchronizations.
A default SYNC gateway is provided and enabled by default. This default gateway can be used only if Notifier configuration is stored in the consolidated database (and not in a Notifier properties file).
The SYNC gateway uses persistent connections. The same connection is used for notifications, confirmations, and device tracking. The SYNC gateway is the preferred gateway: when using device tracking, a notification attempt will start with the SYNC gateway, and fallback to the UDP gateway and then the SMTP gateway.
In the following list of properties, only the enable property is required. All other SYNC gateway properties are optional.
You can have multiple SYNC gateways. To set up additional SYNC gateways, you can copy the properties for one gateway and provide a different gateway name and property values.
