Silent notifications on Android

I want to send an notification to my app but I don't want any message to be displayed to the user I just want to handle it internally.

I tried extending AirshipReceiver and then in onReceive add my own handling and not call super. But still the default Urban Airship handling gets invoked.

How can I suppress the default handling?

Thanks in advance.

  • UA offers a silent push option within the Dashboard. Selecting this option will send the push without any kind of notification text presented to the end user. Check out this link describing how to accomplish this- 

    Have a happy Friday!
