Error description

  • MFP push does not validate settings it
    pulls from various application files.  These settings
    are used to construct the application-descriptor.xml file or to
    update the config.xml file used by Cordova
    Applications.  These settings should be validated because a user
    could corrupt the application file settings.  Corrupted settings
    will not affect
    the build process of MFP Push, but they will impact the
    deployment to native environments (iOS, Android).
