Push notification error when additional json data is included

  • Hello,

    I have successfully tested the push notification service and I can receive alerts on an android phone.

    However, I am trying to send additional json data

    ** {"test"  :  "1234"}**

    in the request as in the following:

          "pushProjectId":"appprojectid goes here - removed",
          "message":"this is test # 3",
          "json":{  "test":"1234" }

    but I am getting the following error:

    {"jsonrpc":"2.0","id":1,"error":{"code":-32603,"message":"Internal error: \"Invalid parameter: JSON\\u306e\\u5f62\\u5f0f\\u304c\\u6b63\\u3057\\u304f\\u3042\\u308a\\u307e\\u305b\\u3093\\u3002\""}}

    I checked the json request using an online json validator and it is valid. When the json parameter is blank, there is no error.

    What am I missing?

  • To add, I am sending the above Push Notification request from a C# application to the Monaca backend URL.

    Note: the ** around the additional json string in the 4th line of the post are not part of the string.

    @jamal Have you set the JSON-RPC Request Header? I think you may not have the right configuration for the request. Please read the documentation for more information.

  • @khemry, this is what I set for the header:

    C# code

            var webAddr = "";
            var httpWebRequest = (HttpWebRequest)WebRequest.Create(webAddr);
            httpWebRequest.ContentType = "application/json";
            httpWebRequest.Headers.Add("X-Monaca-Backend-Management-API-Key", "REMOVED");
            httpWebRequest.Method = "POST";

    As I said in the first post if I send:

    “pushProjectId”:“appprojectid goes here - removed”,
    “message”:“this is test # 3”,
    “json”: { } // Empty json; OK. None empty, errors out.

    The push notification works. It is only when I include additional parameters in the json property, like

    “json”: { “test”:“1234” }

    that I get the internal error.

    @jamal said:

    “json”:{ “test”:“1234” }

    Hi Jamal,

    So, I tested the request myself and found that there was an unintentional error in the documentation. The correct parameter name for JSON object should be extra_json. Therefore, just change your json object as follows then your request should be successfully sent.

    "extra_json":{  "test":"1234" }

    I also updated the parameter name of this JSON object in our Documentation.

  • Hi Khemry,

    It works fine now!

    Thanks for the quick fix!
