Subject: [aerogear-dev] UPS Node Sender client categories issue?


Iím just starting out with UPS (which is awesome btw!) and the Node.js sender client. One thing Iíve noticed is that a message sent from the dashboard with a particular category is sent to only those installations that have that category listed. This works great and is expected. Iím glad there is a way to target specific notification channels, etc.

Sending a notification via the Node Sender client however appears to be sending to everyoneís installation regardless of the categories sent with the message. Hereís a pastie of what my node client call looks like:

Iím using:  
Unifiedpush Node Sender version 0.8.0-beta1

UPS is the setup via the openshift cartridge, from 

Any pointers would be greatly appreciated. Very well could be me doing it wrongÖ ;-)
