Push Notification Handling Example

Below is the sample code for push notification handling in PHP programming language.

This sample code is retrieving the result from the BODY of an RDP push notification, and parse the JSON into array, traverse and print it out to the screen.
By default a successful PHP script returns status 200

$content = '';
$querystring = @file_get_contents('php://input');

$arrParam = array();
$prefix = '';
try {
   $arrParam = json_decode($querystring, true);
   $content .= $querystring;
   foreach($arrParam as $key => $val) {
      $content .=$key.'='.$val."\n";

   $prefix = "";
   if(isset($arrParam["mid"])) $prefix .= $arrParam["mid"];
   $prefix .= "_";
     $prefix .= $arrParam["transaction_id"];

     'res'.'.txt', $content);
catch (Exception $e) {
