Local notification override Remote notification (Actionable notification) setting in iOS 9?

I used following code for remote notification

UIMutableUserNotificationAction *action1;
action1 = [[UIMutableUserNotificationAction alloc] init];
[action1 setActivationMode:UIUserNotificationActivationModeBackground];
[action1 setTitle:@"REJECT"];
[action1 setIdentifier:NotificationActionOneIdent];
[action1 setDestructive:NO];
[action1 setAuthenticationRequired:NO];

UIMutableUserNotificationAction *action2;
action2 = [[UIMutableUserNotificationAction alloc] init];
[action2 setActivationMode:UIUserNotificationActivationModeBackground];////UIUserNotificationActivationModeBackground
[action2 setTitle:@"ACCEPT"];
[action2 setIdentifier:NotificationActionTwoIdent];
[action2 setDestructive:NO];
[action2 setAuthenticationRequired:NO];

UIMutableUserNotificationCategory *actionCategory;
actionCategory = [[UIMutableUserNotificationCategory alloc] init];
[actionCategory setIdentifier:NotificationCategoryIdent];
[actionCategory setActions:@[action1, action2]
forContext:UIUserNotificationActionContextDefault];

NSSet *categories = [NSSet setWithObject:actionCategory];

//Right, that is the point
UIUserNotificationSettings *settings = [UIUserNotificationSettings settingsForTypes:
UIUserNotificationTypeSound | UIUserNotificationTypeAlert categories:categories];
[[UIApplication sharedApplication] registerUserNotificationSettings:settings];
//register to receive notifications
[UIApplication sharedApplication] registerForRemoteNotificationTypes:(UIRemoteNotificationTypeSound | UIRemoteNotificationTypeAlert)];


This works fine show's correct (Accept/Reject buttons). For some condition i want to wake up app to Foreground so i am using following local notification code in



  • (void)application:(UIApplication *)application handleActionWithIdentifier:(NSString *)identifier
    forRemoteNotification:(NSDictionary *)userInfo completionHandler:(void
    (^)())completionHandler method.




UIMutableUserNotificationAction *action1;
action1 = [[UIMutableUserNotificationAction alloc] init];
[action1 setActivationMode:UIUserNotificationActivationModeForeground];
[action1 setTitle:@"LAUNCH"];
[action1 setIdentifier:@"OPEN_ACTION"];
[action1 setDestructive:NO];
[action1 setAuthenticationRequired:NO];

UIMutableUserNotificationCategory *actionCategory;
actionCategory = [[UIMutableUserNotificationCategory alloc] init];
[actionCategory setIdentifier:@"LOCAL_NOTIFICATIOn"];
[actionCategory setActions:@[action1]
forContext:UIUserNotificationActionContextDefault];
[actionCategory setActions:@[action1]
forContext:UIUserNotificationActionContextMinimal];

NSSet *categories1 = [NSSet setWithObject:actionCategory];

UIUserNotificationSettings *settings2 = [UIUserNotificationSettings settingsForTypes:
UIUserNotificationTypeSound | UIUserNotificationTypeAlert categories:categories1];

[[UIApplication sharedApplication] registerUserNotificationSettings:settings2];

UILocalNotification* localNotification = [[UILocalNotification alloc] init];
localNotification.fireDate = [NSDate date];
localNotification.alertTitle= @"Security settings enabled,";
localNotification.alertBody = @"tap the Launch button to start the application";
localNotification.category = @"LOCAL_NOTIFICATIOn";
[[UIApplication sharedApplication] scheduleLocalNotification:localNotification];


Problem: First time Remote notification show's Accept/Reject button correctly but after registering Local notification Remote notification doesn't shows action buttons(Accept/Reject). I can't seen buttons in alerts?

Answer

Your remote notification setting overridden by local notification setting.

// Registering UIUserNotificationSettings more than once results in previous settings being overwritten.

- (void)registerUserNotificationSettings:(UIUserNotificationSettings *)notificationSettings NS_AVAILABLE_IOS(8_0) __TVOS_PROHIBITED;

comment this code:

 [[UIApplication sharedApplication] registerUserNotificationSettings:settings2];
