We’re using the following code:

Hello @Naaman_Tammuz

We are investigating your problem.


Hello @Naaman_Tammuz

The ticket’s number is BKNDLSS-25972.
Could you please provide what version of the Backendless IOS-SDK you use

Regards, Vlad

We’re using Backendless / react native with the following NPM packages:

“backendless”: “^5.8.12”,
“backendless-react-native”: “^0.1.3”,

I can’t seem to locate the BackendlessSwift package though in the Xcode project or in the pod file. I know it’s definitely installed and working because the push notification functionality itself is working fine.

How would I go about finding this version out from Xcode or by some other means?

Hello @Naaman_Tammuz

Thank you for the information. We will investigate the problem and respond as soon as possible.


Thank you!
