    I would like to start enabiling this feature, I read the required patches for 12.1.3 and found they depend on mobile foundation version,my question is if we install the patches corresponding to foundation version 5 is this will be enogh? Or we should install the patches from previous versions ?

    Hello, Dinesh,

    That's not a customizable option at this point. You currently can customize app colors, logos, and other branding-related aspects for apps that you deliver to your end-users via enterprise distribution.

    Hello, Nibras,

    You must apply all of the patches listed in the documentation above for all of the new features in Approvals 1.5 to work. If you have only applied patches for Approvals 1.4, then some of the latest features in Approvals 1.5 will not be available.

    Push notification support not only requires customization to the mobile app but also ability on the EBS server to trigger the notifications and deliver to the app on the device. The EBS server capabilities to trigger push notifications are not available, so any changes done to MAA would be of no use.
