    The size of a JSON message varies depending on the protocol combinations. As you type in the message content, the system will calculate the number of bytes you have entered, the size of the JSON message, and how many bytes are left. The total size of a JSON message includes braces, quotation marks, spaces, line breaks, and message content. For details about how to calculate the size of a JSON message, see Calculation on the Size of a JSON Message in JSON Message Format.

  7. Click OK.
  8. Modify the message content for each protocol so that different messages are sent to endpoints of different protocols. The system generates JSON-formatted content that includes a default message and content for each protocol. When SMN fails to match any specific message protocol, it sends the default message. For detailed, see JSON Message Format.
  9. Click OK.

    SMN delivers your message to all subscription endpoints. For details about the messages received by each endpoint, see Messages of Different Protocols.
