Custom App-ID iMessage

Not applicable

Custom App-ID iMessage


We have recently installed a PA-2020 at our college and am very happy with the device. The only issue we are having is that students are still able to use iMessage on their iPads. I can't find an existing app-id for that and am wondering if anyone has already created a custom id for such. I am going to follow the tech note on creating a custom ID tomorrow but would also like to see others have done.

HI Rowan,

You can check on our dev center. Someone might already have developed the signature for it.

Also if iMessage applicaiton is something that your environment can use. you can request it from our content team as well.

Here is a doc which explain how to request a new app

Hope this helps.

You have to be kidding me that Apple iMessage has not been identified?  Every other .02 instant messaging app is identified.  Come on PAN!
