Due to changes in the way that Android handles GCM, if you are migrating the Android SDK from an earlier release to 22.214.171.124.2 (or later), you must make a few changes to the AndroidManifest.xml.
To get started, make sure you have a release of the Android SDK before 126.96.36.199.2 installed on your app.
Add Job Service
Release 188.8.131.52.1 included an additional service to support jobs on Android O and later. You will need to integrate that if you’re not already on 184.108.40.206.1. Add the following new service to AndroidManifest.xml:
If you are using FCM and are migrating the Android SDK from an earlier release to 220.127.116.11.2 (or later), you do not need to make any further changes. The MceJobService service is sufficient.
If you are migrating the Cordova build from an earlier release to one later than 3.5.0, you must make the changes described in this tutorial when setting up the Android project. For more information, see the Getting started with apps developed with Cordova.
Update the AndroidManifest.xml file.
Update the AndroidManifest.xml by performing these steps:
This step adds the new GCM receiver to your code. To build with this class, you must include Google Play Services v7.5 (or later).
<service android:name="com.ibm.mce.sdk.gcm.MceGcmListenerService" android:exported="false" > <intent-filter> <action android:name="com.google.android.c2dm.intent.RECEIVE" /> </intent-filter> </service>
This step adds the customer listener service that is defined in SDK 18.104.22.168.2 (and later). The service implements GCM behavior according to the new specification.
