Push notification with 'publishAt' property is never delivered

Hey,

I’m using the Javascript API with react native and I’m having an issue using the ‘scheduled push notification’ behaviour. It works perfectly if I specify no delivery time, but if one is added, the message is never received.

Backendless.Messaging.publish(
    "default",
    `You have ${deliveryCount} new messages waiting for you`,
    new Backendless.PublishOptions({}),
    new Backendless.DeliveryOptions({
    publishAt: new Date().getTime() + 60 * 1000,
    })
).then((notification) => {
    console.log("Push notification scheduled", notification);
});

If I take out the PublishOptions & the DeliveryOptions, I receive the push notification straight away.

I’ve tried taking an example message ID that is returned like message:16FB84B2-D9C1-4F88-BBA5-571F4FD0EB21 and using this to look up the message with your API by sending a GET request to:

https://api.backendless.com/APPID/RESTKEY/messaging/message:16FB84B2-D9C1-4F88-BBA5-571F4FD0EB21 but I receive an error:

{"errorMessage":"Could not find status for message with id: message:16FB84B2-D9C1-4F88-BBA5-571F4FD0EB21","messageId":"message:16FB84B2-D9C1-4F88-BBA5-571F4FD0EB21","status":"unknown"}

Can you please let me know what’s going wrong here?

Thanks

Hey, do you possibly have a timeline as to when this will be looked at please? This is the only thing holding up our beta release

Hi
Do you have any updates on this?
We have the same issue, but with Android. When publishAt is set in deliveryOptions the notifications are not delivered

Thanks
