Outbound Messaging: Sending acknowledgment to Salesforce


There is a unique notification ID that comes with the outbound message. Is there any way to acknowledge that particular notification ID?

We would like to acknowledge the message once we recieve the notification. And, we want to send the acknowledgement on the seperate thread.

Hi Shalindra ,

You need to implement the listener
Please find below the sample request message:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<soapenv:Envelope xmlns:soapenv="" xmlns:xsd="" xmlns:xsi="">
		<notifications xmlns="">
				<sObject xsi:type="sf:Account" xmlns:sf="">

Hi Shalindra,

Can you please update us here what did you do then? A snippet of the solution would be great as well!
Hi Shalindra/Mina,

Can you please post here the snippet of the solution?
Hi Prateek / Michel,

Since does not expect acknowlegement back and does not associate it with unique notification id that we get (that's my understanding) so I used Object id to update the one the field (flag) of that Object to acknowlege that records has successfully reached to target application.
