Alert Push and Alert Feed
HTTPS Alert Integration may be performed in one of two possible ways: Alert Push or Alert Feed. Alert Push is appropriate when you wish to host an HTTPS server reachable by OWS that can receive real-time alerts from OWS as they are produced. Alert Feed is appropriate when you do not want the overhead associated with running an HTTPS server or if you wish to use a batch-based integration model. You should choose only one of these options for your Alert integration.
